One of the most satisfying aspects of the auto-paintings I produce is the feedback I receive from clients and especially the recipients of the works as gifts.

Listed below are examples of these comments.

You can actually see, feel and touch all the features of the car due to the modelling of the leather.  When you actually see some of his works of art you will simply be blown away.

At the 2018 Concours South Africa event, Rory Byrne, the famous South African designer of Ferrari Formula 1 cars was in attendance to present Alan’s finished work of a Ferrari F40 to the previous year's winning entrant. 

Rory stood there absolutely amazed when seeing the work and just said: “Now that is perfection !”

At the request of the owner Rory signed the artwork.

'Early in 2018 I attended a motoring art exhibition and was introduced to Alan Dent, who gave me a presentation of his particularly unique art form.

I was immediately intrigued by the fact that I could touch and feel all the parts of the BMW 635, which he had as a demonstration piece prior to it being painted.  As an avid collector I have seen many examples of automotive art over the years a but nothing has caught my attention as this truly remarkable piece of art.

We are looking forward to developing a long term relationship with Alan, as we feel that his unique art medium will significantly enhance the ambience we seek to create at the Concours SA events.'

I must say I was totally delighted when I received the finished artwork of my Zakspeed Ford Escort.  Alan’s modelling of the cars detail into the leather combined with his use of light and shade gives a truly realistic look to the piece.

One of the most satisfying aspects of the work is that friends and relatives all enjoy the look and feel of the art and it always proves to be a stimulating conversation piece. 

I would highly recommend Alan to any car enthusiast.

I have been privileged enough to see one of your art pieces (the Ford GT  commission for the WesBank Branch in Pretoria) and it is definitely a complete masterpiece and collector’s item.

We own a number of Porsche motor cars and about three years ago we met Alan Dent and were introduced to his unique form of car art with truly lifelike effects.

ISince meeting Alan we have acquired four more of his marvellous artworks and recently came to an arrangement with him to display  his available pieces at our place of business - and they certainly attract a lot of attention and comment.

I saw a presentation of Alan's artwork on the IGNITION TV Show and subsequently commissioned an artwork of my newly acquired Jaguar E-Pace SUV.

The work always catches the attention of visiting family and friends, with everyone commenting on the exceptional quality of the masterpiece and it invariably iturns nto an excellent conversation piece.
