"Racing Legends" Paintings Perfectly Recreate Famous 60s and 70s Classics

Critics will tell you that a car can never be considered a piece of art because it serves a purpose, which art shouldn't. And yet we enthusiasts continue to stubbornly see the perfection in the body of Jaguar E-Type or a Ferrari 330.

Many artists claim they can draw these classics, but very few actually do it right. We don't blame them though, since what the eye perceives is scrutinized using years of experience gathered by any car aficionado. However, we've discovered somebody who can perfectly combine art and cars in one painting.

Not surprisingly though, he's one of us, a huge fan of design with an eye for the classic. Barcelona-based artist Markus Haub started his "Racing Legends" collection back in 2008. It's mainly about about racing cars from the 60s and 70s, the ones everybody knows and loves: Ford GT 40 and Porsche 356 at Le Mans Classic, Porsche 904, 917 or Jaguar E-Type at the Nurburgring and Ferraris at the Mille Miglia.

The creation process starts with an actual photo, which is then digitally manipulated and brought onto the canvas using a collage technique. Vibrant colors are then added, sometimes joined by text in classic font to add texture and depth.

Markus Haub is a graduate of University of Applied Arts in Pforzheim, Germany, with a degree in Transportation Design. His career started at Volkswagen, where he also worked with Audi, SEAT, and even Lamborghini designs. After that, he worked for Renault's Advanced Design Studio in the city centre of Barcelona and another studio in Paris.
