Description

Monaco Grand Prix is among the oldest and most prestigious automotive racing events worldwide. Along with Indianapolis 500 and 24 Hours of Le Mans, it shapes the Triple Crown of Motorsports. And is probably the most spectacular of them all.

Held since 1929 on the streets of Monaco where the rich and famous spend their fortune in Casino de Monte Carlo, this competition is extremely difficult because of the terrain elevation, tight corners, and the dark tunnel. The first race was won by William Grover-Williams with its dark green Bugatti Type 35B that outrun Mercedes-Benz SSK driven by Rudolf Caracciola.

Because of its narrow track, slow average speeds and punishing nature, Monaco F1 has often thrown up unexpected results. The ability to watch the competition from a rooftop swimming pool or at some of the yachts in the harbor is turning Monaco Grand Prix into even more exclusive motorsports event. The most successful pilot on the streets of Monte Carlo is still Ayrton Senna with 6 wins, five of them consecutively between 1989 and 1993. Graham Hill, the man who started driving at the very late age of 24 has 5 victories, just like Michael Schumacher.

McLaren is the most successful team in Monaco Grand Prix with 15 victories in total. Sorry Ferrari and Mercedes, we know you need this so bad but the numbers are not in your favor.

It is true that the Monaco Grand Prix is a motorsports institution largely because of the Monaco Royal Family. Starting with Louis II who supported its first edition, continuing with Rainier III noted car enthusiast and followed by his son Albert II, the Grimaldi family left an inimitable imprint of the European automotive culture.

This very Monaco Grand Prix art is created by Joel Clark with his unique technique of hand cut vinyl. At Simply Petrol we are more than happy to give you access to this exceptional art, created by an intriguing artist.

Joel Clark car art

His love of Motorsport, and anything-on-wheels, stretches back to childhood and growing up near to Silverstone. Joel`s father would take him to vintage race meets throughout the 80’s, resulting in his obsession with cars and bikes

Upon leaving school, Joel took a job designing and making vinyl stickers for race teams, with a Sign maker based at the circuit. This is where he learnt the skill of ‘hand-cutting’ vinyl. However Joel soon decided to go to Art College and 6 years later, left to pursue a career as a Creative in Advertising – working in some of the world’s biggest agencies.

Since leaving Advertising in 2014, he has now gone full-circle and returned to the unique skill Joel learnt back at Silverstone in 1990. Now he hands cut the vinyl to create artworks of cars. This use of vinyl gives Joel`s original pieces a totally unique finish to that of the actual car he is depicting. And when applied to helmets and body-panels, the results turn real objects into surreal pop art sculptures.

Up to date, Joel Clark is the only artist using hand cut vinyl as a medium – therefore his artworks are a truly unique and original offering. At Simply Petrol we are more than happy to share with you the art of this stunning automotive artists in the form of beautiful posters and art prints.
