However, this is much more than a gallery of car art, as each of our automotive artists will also be creating live and hosting workshops within their discipline, giving show-goers the opportunity to experience their art first-hand.
The gathering of ‘cartists’ will form the hub of the Piazza, where visitors to the British Motor Show will be able to wander around and watch them at work. You’ll also get the chance to take part in interactive workshops directly with the artists themselves.
In addition, our ‘artist-in-residence’, David Johnson from Formula Art, will be using the event to create an artwork live on the body of a classic MG, using a palette knife.
David has created paintings for some of motor sport’s top drivers and teams, from Sir Jackie Stewart to Lando Norris, and has exhibited in some of the industry’s leading venues including the British Grand Prix, Royal Automobile Club and British Racing Drivers Club.
Our automotive artists joining David include, Hayley Mulcahy – an illustrator and comic book artist from Cork City, Ireland, Tamara Ivancova who creates motorsport images using thin strips of paper glued on their side to create highly detailed artworks, Juliet Marsh and Carjetski.
The Piazza will be a hub of activity throughout the show weekend.
