About the Artist: Gerald Tobin
Gerald Tobin is a self taught
artist, who also happens to have a love for Ford cars; Mustangs in particular.
He made the decision several years ago to try his hand at automotive art, which
he quickly excelled at. He has always been very passionate about his art, and he
pours his heart and soul into each and every piece. This is apparent in the
results, which are absolutely spectacular.
Because he was not able to find Mustang art that suited his tastes, he decided
that he would create his own collection of Mustang artwork. Gerald has crafted
an outstanding series of classic Mustang paintings and drawings. His objective
in his watercolor paintings was to make all of the Mustang and Shelby cars look
as realistic as possible, and make the backgrounds look surreal, in order to
emphasize the realism of the cars themselves. Most people can not believe that
they are not photographs, until they look a lot more closely at the backgrounds.
It seemed that everyone that saw his paintings said that they were far too
beautiful for him to keep to himself. He was told time and time again, by many
admirers of his work, that his artwork was far superior to anything that they
had seen, and that he needed to share these incredible works of art with others.
In order to give the countless Mustang art lovers the chance to own some of
Geraldís artwork, it was decided to make the watercolor paintings into limited
edition lithographs. At present, Pony Car Art is offering two of these classic
Mustang paintings as limited edition lithographs. There are only going to be 750
of each of the limited edition lithographs ever sold. Each lithograph is hand
numbered, and contains the artistís signature.
Gerald has also created several magnificent pencil drawings, mostly of classic
Shelby Mustangs. The detail in these works of art is as incredible as that in
his paintings. It has amazed so many people when seeing the chrome and the glass
shine on these cars, using only watercolors in his paintings, or with just a #2
pencil in the case of his pencil drawings. Most of the pencil drawings are
currently available as prints, printed on heavyweight stock, in order to
maintain the level of quality of the original drawings.
All of these works by Gerald Tobin are available exclusively from Pony Car Art.
This includes the limited edition lithographs, the pencil drawing prints, and
also some original automotive paintings that are not Mustangs, but are earlier
works of his. These original pieces are one of a kind. The lucky new owner of
each of these beautiful paintings will have the only one.
From time to time, Gerald takes on contract work to create an automotive
painting for someone, usually of their own favorite car. This can only happen
once every so often, because of the sheer amount of hours involved in creating
one of his paintings, and is on a first come first serve basis. If you are
interested in finding out more about having him create a painting just for you,
please call us at 978-658-6589.
Thank you from the people at Pony Car Art.
