CARS inspired Pop Art RELEASE EVENT – WonderGround Gallery
On September 8 – 9, 2012 – I’ll be on hand from 1pm to 4pm (each day) at the WonderGround Gallery in the Downtown Disney® District at the Disneyland® Resort. Inspired by the Disney∙Pixar’s Cars universe combined with Japanese automobile racing anime/manga franchises from the 60′s and 70′s, Ukiyo-E (woodblock prints), Retro racing posters, Italian automotive model kits – among many other things – the Rising Sun Speedway is born – featuring Lightning McQueen, Shu Todoroki and friends!
This piece aims to take you on a visual adventure down Japan’s most famous (imagined) freeway — combining a range of techniques and mediums including three-dimensional lighting made real with acrylic gloss, crushed glass, 3D effects, photographic steel applications, and more. The result is a cross over from the world of 3D animation to retro 2D and back again.
Hope to meet some of you at WonderGround this weekend!
(Aside from the original, RISING SUN SPEEDWAY is available as limited edition giclees and deluxe print. Prices vary.)
