when I first found these works, I said to myself, "goddamn...these would look fabulous on 928 and 968 hoods; their unique shapes would lend themselves perfectly as blank canvases." this thought quickly went from using their hoods to using the entire car, why not? Porsche's "hippie" and "pink pig" 917s were not only completely original but also superbly done; much later, the 944 Turbo Cup car "pinkie" followed suit. the thinking got to possibly scour craigslist for a beater Porsche that would be a perfect specimen for such work; guiltless fun.

now these works were exhibited at the Porsche Museum years ago, but this artist and Porsche lover from Argentina is a story that needs repeating. art like this never loses its freshness, and if you have any appreciation for such a thing, it's always a treat to see now and then.
