"A Painting on a hood of vintage 911 ? Sign me up..."
On the day of the event, right after sunset, we're really excited to auction 5 very special 911 hoods donated by our friends and sponsors at RS Werks. We commissioned very talented local artists Nicky Davis, Tony Parana, Armando Rodriguez, Katherine Mason and Michael Blome to paint these vintage Porsche hoods. Proceeds from the the auction will go to our charity:
As far as canvasses go, there are many, yet having a vintage 911 hood with a painting by a talented artist, well that's something special, more so when you know the proceeds went to fund a scholarship for a kid with cancer.
Katherine Mason known for her trendy Pop-Art style and her unique "Lipstick Paitnings" is doing her interpretation of an early 911 painted on an early 911 hood, we believe this one will go quick !
Nicky Davis is one of Houston's most famous muralists, with his unique "dark style" of cartoonish ghosts and skulls, he is a favorite among kids and grown ups alike. His murals can be seen all over the city and he has agreed to paint one of our hoods for auction -Picture by Chroma Rose Photography-
Michael Blome, Houstonian with a very sharp and colorful style known for his skulls, sent us a sketch of what he plans to paint on one of the hoods.
Tony Paraná from Brazil, lives and works in Houston, a renowned artist and Capoeira instructor, known for his beautiful city scapes and favelas is painting one of the 5 hoods with the theme shown below, a kid flying a kite.
