    Sotherby's Art of Motoring

    In November 2022, we had the privilege of attending the Royal Automobile Club’s Art of Motoring Exhibition at the prestigious Sotheby’s Bond Street, London.
    This week on the Driven Chat podcast, Rachael Downie shares her fascinating conversations had with some wonderfully talented automotive artists at Europe’s leading curated automotive art exhibition.
    Curators Andrew Marriott and Rupert Whyte, used the beautiful expansive space to showcase 26 artists that use varied mediums for their work. All have truly inspirational, some quirky and unexpected anecdotes and background stories.
    In this podcast, you’ll hear from:
    Virginia-based Heidi Mraz with her incredible ‘Petal to the Metal’ story-telling montages;
    Sculptor, Jonny Ambrose, who showcased the largest art piece, a six-foot-long skeletal Porsche 917 constructed using 3D printed joints and carbon fibre rods;
    Richard Neergaard, who forms his eye-catching pieces using laser-cut aluminium;
    And Martin Tomlinson, whose automotive passion and enthusiasm not only comes across through his art but also through his autograph book. The book, which is available for purchase, serves as a fascinating and unique memento of some of the greatest racing drivers, with the signatures of over 70 top racing drivers and World Champions.
