About The Artwork

Essentially the first German Grand Prix motor race. Many details are hidden all over the drawing. My artworks are not copies of old photographs. Work on one picture usually takes up to 2 months. Many hours of research and reference material to make sure I rebuild the car and environment exactly the way it was in that race. In addition, all fonts, logos and advertisements were used in those years. The Kaiserpreis race was the second major international motorsport event in Germany, after the 1904 Gordon Bennett race. It took place on June 13th and 14th, 1907 on a 117 km long circuit through the Taunus, Hesse, Germany. The race was held on the slightly modified 1904 course, which was now run in the opposite direction. Two elimination runs of two laps each took place on the first day of the race. The 20 fastest times qualified for the main race over four laps on the following day. The final race won Italian driver Felice Nazzaro in a Fiat. Carl Jörns in an Opel 34/65 hp racing car with Vauxhall 7.9L engine finished third and was awarded the Kaiser Wilhelm II special prize for the best German vehicle. Architecture & Landscape: A forest section of the Taunus circuit Organisation & Advertising: - Imperial Automibile Club (Kaiserliche Automobil-Club) logo in 1907 - This Opel brand logo whitch was used from 1906 to 1909 - Continental advertisement in 1907 - The еvent name ‘Kaiserpreisrennen’ I wrote in the font used by the Kaiser Wilhelm II in official telegrams at that time - Opel car was fitted with Continental tires. This Continental brand logo was used from 1882 to 1948

I live and work in Beer Sheva, Israel. I am a self-taught artist, without professional art education. I started drawing cars when I was 2 years old, my mother carefully keeps my childhood drawings. And now, 40 years later, I'm still doing what I love. My graphic artworks are made in the technique of ink graphics with elements of watercolor, in the style of old engravings and old advertising brochures. My style is based on detailed drawing and historical accuracy. The artworks are mainly devoted to the history of world motoring, the first auto-sports competitions (since the 1900s), old architecture and Formula 1 racing. My artworks are not copies of old photographs. The first motor racing events took place over 100 years ago and there is very little information about it. Work on one picture usually takes up to 2 months. Many hours of research and reference material to make sure I rebuild the car and environment exactly the way it was in that race. I always strive to depict historically accurately all the things and details of the event. I research archival documents, old photographs, publications and articles in newspapers of those years, and much more, to be sure that all elements of the picture correspond to the historical period: architecture, landscape, weather, specification and color of cars, clothes of drivers, mechanics and spectators, advertising, and so on. In addition, all fonts, logos and advertisements that were used in those years. Only after careful preparation, I start drawing. It takes a lot of patience, diligence and passion to paint such detailed artwork. Drawing such small details requires high precision and concentration.
