36”w x 24”, acrylic on canvas

This painting of the Mercedes Benz SLR Stirling Moss was inspired by an early evening walk down Ocean Avenue in Carmel on the way to dinner. The car was the first thing that caught my attention but then I noticed all the people with cameras milling around and the wonderful warm light spilling onto the sidewalk from the stores and the car headlights on the road. Look in the window of the gallery and you will see some Koka originals including the Peter Helck Award winning Savannah No5. This painting is a 2013 AFAS Exhibition premiere at the Pebble Beach Concours.

65 Shelby GT350

Title: "65 Shelby GT350"
by Jay Koka, © 2013
36”w x 24”, acrylic on canvas

Jay Koka: This is...if there is such a thing...the definitive and iconic Shelby GT. I hear Shelby and this is the image that immediately comes to mind. I wanted to do a painting that focused on the "stripes" and presented them as the critically visual element that they are in the design. The only way to do this was to place the car in a dimly lit environment. However, a dark garage as a background lacks visual interest so I decided on a more industrial setting that also introduced areas of intense light and dark...in addition to the wonderful color values like on the right wall. This painting is a 2013 AFAS Exhibition premiere at the Pebble Beach Concours.

Graffiti

Title: "Graffiti"
by Jay Koka, © 2013
36”w x 24”, acrylic on canvas

Jay Koka: The C7 is making news and generating lots of interest. I enjoy the visual of a typically micro-designed automobile where every minute aspect of the design is endlessly revised and refined contrasted with the exuberance and spontaneity of graffiti in a completely non-descript alley way. In fact, the entire painting reflects this contrast with a rigorously balanced layout containing a completely random pattern of graffiti. This painting is a 2013 AFAS Exhibition premiere at the Pebble Beach Concours.
