Jay Koka: "Commissioning for the Pebble Beach Concours poster is a most exciting and in some ways intimidating event. With some 50 years of history, the event posters have been executed by many of the world's pre-eminent automotive artists… it can be a tough and overwhelming act to follow.

Of course everyone wants to do the "best yet" poster and I'm no exception. But even more than that, I wanted to do a poster that was not only visually exciting but also to the extent possible, somewhat unique. I didn't want to use the golf course and bay but I did want to use The Lodge… and both of those backgrounds have been used countless times.

The Lodge, while attractive, is mono-chrome so my solution for visual excitement was to force the color of the magnificent tree in the circle and make its warm rich colors the focal point of the painting. The beautiful black Delahaye is a stunning presence no matter what the background so that in many ways was the easiest part. If a viewer sees the circle in a way they've never seen it before: I've done my job."

Avery small number of SIGNED POSTERS available from the studio.
