The ICON Art project is rooted in the same passion for classic design that drives ICON vehicle projects. Founder Jonathan Ward has amassed thousands of photographs, taken at private collections and events around the world.
Jonathan processes these digital images, and reduces them to the purest expressions of form, to capture the essence of the design. Then he hand draws the art based on the modified graphic.
We offer two series of ICON Art; a limited edition run of aluminum pieces crafted in collaboration with Neal Feay, the masters of aluminum (with whom we craft many of the ICON trim components). Each piece is CNC’ed to 0.5’’ thick, 9 1/4’’ x 13 5/8’’ with an inset groove on the back for wall hanging, plus a blind tapped hole for desk mounting with the supplied stainless bolt. Then Neal Feay, by combining classic silk screening and anodizing processes in a novel fashion, fuses the black graphic into the brushed aluminum surface.
Also available are high quality 13 ½’’ x 20’’ prints, produced in Los Angeles using vintage 1950's press print equipment, on matte black paper with specialized matte silver ink.
