About The Artist:

Stéphane Dufour Automotive Artist

Stéphane DUFOUR was born in BellacFrance, in 1970.

He spent most of his childhood contemplating fine automobile craftsmanship passing through his father’s workshop. His father repaired and serviced prestigious cars, authentic masterpieces which stimulated Stéphane’s imagination and would deeply influence this young boy’s day to day life.

PSYCHEDELIQUE
Original done in colored pencils. 1/150.

While attending his first lessons at the Art Decos school of Limoges, he realized he could combine his passions for drawing and beautiful cars. Stéphane was unquestionably inspired by the 50s, 60s and 70s automobiles. Three decades unanimously considered as the pinnacle of car design and conception by all car amateurs.

917 Martini
1/300.

With a simple pencil or charcoal he started drawing, with great talent, these legendary cars which were all hauting his mind. At the time his preference for “3/4 front” and black and white drawings is evident. After studying three years at the Art Décos school, he established his unique and innovative style, synthetising space, light, shape, movement and color.

917 Legend
original was done in oil. 1/300.

Pushing his work on reflections and details to the limit, his paintings now emphasized the light and shadows rapping around exquisite bodywork. Stéphane’s work is eclectic, ranging from Ferrari to Aston Martin and passed Citroen.

Spyder 550
1/200

However his unassailable passion for Porsche shines through with numerous and honorable art works of unique German supercars.

Last victory at Le Mans in 1998 for Porsche 911 GT 1 No.26

These paintings and drawings of epic Porsches, Le Mans prototypes and exceptional 911s, guaranty him an international acclaim.

Road & Track
1/250

Moreover the quality of his work was officially recognized by the Porsche firm, who have guaranteed him over the past years a certified international licence for artistic reproductions of the Zuffenhausen‘s production.

Generation Speedster
1/200. original was done in colored pencils.

With over 200 canvases in experience, Stéphane Dufour is now adamant in using new technologies to help develop his artwork.

Portfolio.
5 sheets depicting the evolution of what is now the 911. Amazing. 1/300

After years using only pencils, oil paint or airbrush, Stéphane started sculpting in 2004 and recently using digital technology, thereby enriching his artistic production. He describes his own work as hyperréalistic, but also claims a more abstract style on certain paintings, sculptures and digital artwork principally.

959
Original artwork based on the first 1980s supercar theme: the Porsche 959. Oil painting on canvas. Dimensions: 50 x 40 cm. Created in 2007

All of Stéphane’s work are unique limited editions as well as signed and marked by him.

PORSCHE PRESS RELEASE: New special exhibition – Art, Graphics and Design – Hanns Lohrer and Porsche

New special exhibition to open at Porsche Museum on 4 September 2012

Art, Graphics & Design – Hanns Lohrer and Porsche

Stuttgart. An elegant glove, a poodle, a hunting rifle:

From 4 September to 4 November 2012, the Porsche Museum is exhibiting the works of the versatile Stuttgart painter and commercial graphic designer Hanns Lohrer (1912 – 1995) – and these works extend far beyond the topic of motor cars.

Hanns Lohrer (1912 – 1995)

During the 1950s and 60s, Lohrer played a pivotal role in the visual appearance of the Porsche brand which was founded in 1948. In this special exhibition the Porsche Museum pays testimony to the timeless quality of Lohrer’s works, which made a lasting contribution to creating the positive image of the then fledgling sports car manufacturer.

A selection of victory posters created by Hanns Lohrer at the close of every year to visually capture Porsche’s sporting successes is one area of focus at the exhibition.

New special exhibition: Art, Graphics & Design – Hanns Lohrer & Porsche

A high point within Porsche advertising is, among other things, the series of posters designed by Hanns Lohrer in 1961 depicting the Porsche 356 in the context of sports such as golfing, hunting or horse riding. Typical of Porsche’s prestigious advertising during that era, the bold colours of the sports equipment dominated the sports car which was shown in small scale.

 

New special exhibition: Art, Graphics & Design – Hanns Lohrer & Porsche

In addition to the 40 posters, the Porsche Museum exhibition also includes sales brochure artwork by Hanns Lohrer. Visitors can thus view the red cover page of the 1958 356A catalogue showing a woman’s hand wearing an elegant glove and handling the gear shift of a Porsche with seeming effortlessness.

And of course the poodle motif is a must, with the poster showing a refined young lady with a poodle on its lead at the lower right, giving the headline “Powerful elegance guided with ease” a second visual meaning.

The poodle is a recurring element in Hanns Lohrer’s work, and is even made the central motif of a 1960 Porsche poster entitled “I too, prefer Porsche”. These exhibition pieces will be supplemented by around 30 original sketches and pictures testifying to the full range of Hanns Lohrer’s works.

Porsche advertising from 1961

Stuttgart artist Hanns Lohrer has always thrilled those who experience his work and continues to be an inspiration to advertising professionals. The works Hanns Lohrer created for Porsche superbly combined the brand message with the graphic designer’s artistic style.

The Porsche Museum shop is also extending its range on the occasion of the special exhibition and offering postcards, canvas stretchers, ring-binder labels and refrigerator magnets featuring graphic motifs by Lohrer.

The Porsche Museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from 9.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m. Admission is € 8.00 for adults, reduced admission is € 4.00.

Free admission for children up to 14 years accompanied by an adult. More information is available at http://www.porsche.com/museum.

Italian Porsche Artist – Alessandro Gedda – Cayman Skyscraper

ITALIAN ARTIST ALESSANDRO GEDDA HAS A PASSION FOR FAST CARS AND IN PARTICULAR FOR THE PORSCHE

Porsche “My passion,” he says..

Fancy painted Cayman lifted onto a building.  A crane lifts a covered Porsche with a cloth, it does a fly over one of the most beautiful buildings in Milan and then laid gently on the Terrace Downtown.The curtain falls and reveals a Porsche Cayman completely customized by the brush of Alessandro Gedda.  The man seems to be a perpetual motion machine. Italian artist Alessandro Gedda radiates a dynamic energy that finds expression in his brilliantly hued, powerful paintings.

Cayman Skyscraper

Cayman Skyscraper

With his zest for art, photography, and design, Gedda has gained an international reputation. His works have been exhibited in Rome and Milan and will be shown in Monaco, New York, Miami, and Moscow this year alone. One of the dominating themes of his work:

Porsche. “My passion,” he says.

A passion the forty-year-old Gedda is not content to express solely in his art: Last year, he pursued it for 50,000 kilometers (about 35,000 miles) on real-life roads. His current love is a 911 Carrera 4 in Seal Gray. Che bella macchina, as the Italians like to say. Gedda says he soaks up the various impressions he gains on these drives, unfiltered, so to speak, to later capture them on canvas. These fleeting impressions range from the typical anarchy of an Italian roundabout to a speedy highway jaunt to a stop by the side of beautiful Lake Como.

Gedda lives only about ten miles from Lake Como, in a sixteenth-century manor house in Appiano Gentile.

“I only keep a few of my canvases at home,” he says. “The others are in private collections. Two were recently bought by American gallery owners. Actually, when I think about it, selling one of my pictures is always a highly emotional experience. It means parting with one of your creations. It will travel new roads without you—but it carries your mark out into the world, the mark of passion.”

Alessandro GeddaAlessandro Gedda

How did it all start?

“I was six years old, and we were living on a country estate in Tuscany. Friends of my father would often drop by before taking part in a rally on the island of Elba. And there was this one car that caught my fancy more than anything else,” Gedda says. “A Porsche. I especially remember the big headlights and the inimitable sound. I drew a picture of it—and from that moment, I knew I wanted to own a Porsche myself one day.”

Just one Porsche? Actually… no.

Gedda’s current Porsche is his fourth. He started out with a 911 SC 3.0, then he fell in with a 911 RS, then he set his sights on a 911 Carrera, before ultimately falling for his current “baby.”

Gedda’s relationship with his Porsches is a close one. He even talks to them. He remembers how he once got up early so he could have a heart-to heart with his 911 RS and beseech it to climb the Cisa Pass “like only this 911 could.” The pass crosses the Apennines to link the Emilia-Romagna region with Tuscany.

“The Porsche replied in its own language, the musical tones of its flat-six engine.”

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Talking to your car sounds a little crazy?

Well, maybe this kind of dialogue is less surprising when one considers that Gedda studied communications in New York City, and for the past thirteen years has headed an agency devoted to communications in the broadest sense of the term.

Alessandro Gedda has always liked to test limits, including his own—whether it’s parachuting (when he was with the police in the 1980s), deep-sea diving, or pursuing his passion for Porsche. In that respect, his current pet project fits the bill perfectly. It seems space will be getting a little tight in his studio soon. Besides his large canvases, Gedda will have to make room for a Porsche 356. He plans to restore the vintage machine—in 356 days, to be precise.
