Artists around the world are fascinated by the Porsche brand. Inspired by the aura of the models from Zuffenhausen, they create works of art that achieve five- and six-figure prices at auctions. The Porsche 911, as the icon of the brand, is often at the center of the works.
For the most part, the artists approach the object and its forms in a classical way, in oil or acrylic. Increasingly though, these artists are also designing contemporary digital art. The artists hail from all over the world - from urban and multi-cultural New York to the Scottish highlands, and the North German Plain. What all the artists have in common is that they use the charisma of the Porsche lines and curves to put it into a new context.
Curated by the renowned painter and performance artist Uli Hack, the book shows a kaleidoscope of contemporary Porsche art.
