Cars Art and Media Coverage

Launching into 2015 I thought I would recap 2014 events and media coverage I have enjoyed.

Meguiars MotorEx 2014 was held in Melbourne for the first time and after a few years on the car show circuit this was an entirely new experience to behold. Part carnival part high end fetishist hard core car obsessed fest. The event was incredible.

The Pink 1960 Dodge a Zocchi custom was a huge hit and took out a 2014 3M Street Elite award and was featured in Cruzin Magazine. The first Zocchi in Australia and had only arrived a few months earlier. There is a great little interview at time mark 12.30 on this one hour special featured on SPEED channelDetails of the car can be viewed here with a great article written by Paul Vanzella - the very proud owner.

More recently Paul and I were interviewed for a mini series called Garage Dreams covering car culture in Australia and the  United States - this is a rough cut of the interview. At this stage it is a pilot and we are hoping it will be picked up and released later this year.

My 1960 Pontiac Catalina continues to be a pleasure to own and delights me every time I am in it or simply view it. 2014 I took it to The Kustom Nationals in Phillip Island and loved not only the event but the pleasure of taking it on the racetrack.

I had an exhibition which was a complete departure from my previous exhibition work which has been largely illustrative and leaped off the virtual cliff into the absurdest sexuality of I am Your Sex Thing.  

The exhibition was also accompanied by a book launch - those who were there might know of its acerbic angle.

A picture book is underway…meanwhile there is a I am Your Sex Thing Facebook Page to LIKE here.
