Artist combines Gulf's favourites in new work

Luxury, cars and creative art combine in Markus Haub's Racing Legends collection

The Gulf region is known for its love of luxury goods, cars and creative art.

Markus Haub, a renowned Barcelona based artist and highly acclaimed car designer, brings together all these elements in his collection titled “Racing Legends”.

The series is mainly about racing cars from the 60s and 70s, Ferraris at the Mille Miglia, Ford GT 40 or Porsche 356 at Le Mans Classic or Porsche 904, 917 or Jaguar E-Type at the Nürburgring in Germany just to name a few, and is currently featured at Speedstar Gallery.

His painting technique is based on a mixture of photography, digital manipulation, and manual work.

The artwork possess’ a vibrant quality due to his use of strong hues, varnish and reactions between different materials, which in turn magnify the specific effects highlighted in certain areas of every canvas.

Markus Haub now creates custom paintings for discerning clients at Speedstar Gallery upon order. You can send in a photo of a racing car, classic car or your own collection, and he will create a unique piece, customised just for you.
