I’m Alex Pieussergues, French Graphic Designer, Illustrator and automotive artist, based near Paris, and as far as I can remember, I have always been interested in motorsports.
When I was a child, I often rummaged through piles of my father’s F1 magazines and leafed in admiring the photos, we were in 1977-78. I have always been attracted to the artistic side of everything. I drew, photographed and sculpted. Racing cars for me are real objects of art, it is quite obvious that I can not photograph them, so I decided to draw them to reproduce and immortalize their splendid lines.
From the beginning, I chose to draw them in a profile pointing to the right (sense of occidental reading and direction of the future) with a comic style thanks to the technique of the clear line but with a hyper-realistic side that brings out the shadows and reflections.
