No better place to interview an automotive artist than at The Gallery in Brummen, The Netherlands.
Surrounded by a unique collection of classic and exclusive cars Marcel Haan at CarArtSpot met with Dutch designer and automotive artist Ronald Hulleman. Till the 4th of September “11 his paintings of Maseratis, Alfa, Austin Healey and Jaguars are exposed at the Gallery. We walked around all these great cars while Ronald was showing me how different curves and materials all have their own reflections and how he tries to capture the reflections in his car paintings. His passion for these cars and his vision on art was inspiring. Marcel had a great afternoon and will share the full interview with you soon.
This was actually the third interview I did in a series that I am planning to continue in the comings months. Each week I hope to post an interview with an automotive artist and tell you the story behind their artworks. Why the artist did started painting cars in the first place. Where did his or her passion for cars start? I want to learn the kind of techniques they use, what the challenges are while painting and where they get their inspiration from.
The series will start with Canadian automotive artist Etienne Carignan who made a great illustration of the Plymouth Roadrunner 1972. In this interview he shares his techniques and what’s so special on the Plymouth Roadrunner.
The second interview I did, and which will be posted shortly, was with Belgium artist Hendrik Cleiren. He started a very unique collection around the love for cars and I like to share his story with you.
