Ford GT 2nd Generation in Toronto (at Nathan Phillips Square)

Title: "Ford GT 2nd Generation in Toronto (at Nathan Phillips Square)"
by Jay Koka, © 2023
48"w x 38", acrylic on canvas, Private Collection

Features the Ford GT Carbon Series - 2nd Generation.

The setting is the 12 acre Nathan Phillips Square with the iconic city hall in the background. Located in the heart of the city, the City Hall was opened in 1965. Following years of massive growth, Toronto's core population of 3 million and a regional population of just over 6 million makes it the fourth largest city in North America (after Mexico City, New York City and Los Angeles).

The setting was chosen because the Ford GT is assembled in nearby Markham, often considered a suburb of Toronto. A privately commissioned major new work.

812 Competizione at Kronenhalle

44"w x 34", acrylic on canvas, Private Collection

The Kronenhalle is a Zurich institution, a legend created by Hulda Zumsteg... in 1924 she and her husband took over a derelict hotel on Bellevue Square and turned it into a popular meeting spot with a unique ambience. Under the stewardship of the legendary restaurateur, the locale soon became a meeting spot for writers, artists and members of high society, such as James Joyce, Coco Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Chagall, Federico Fellini, Max Frisch, Friedrich Dürrenmatt and Carl Zuckmayer.

Features the 812 Competizione perhaps the ultimate expression of Ferrari's concept of an extreme front-engined berlinetta .

A privately commissioned major new work. Not published.
