Paul Karslake won his first County Art Prize at the age of eight, and ever since then he has been immersed in the art world. He has been commissioned internationally for pieces that have made their way into the fine art market, has conducted portraits for famous entertainers, and worked at CBS as well as Disney. He began to work on this Mercedez when hsi son pointed out that one similar in a parking lot looked like the old style gangster vehicles of the 1990s. B.I.G., Biggie, or Biggie Smalls was an American rapper and rival of Tupac. It's these two musicians who Paul chose a s the subject matter. You are advised to take the time to study this fantastic piece of art closely. There are so many details to marvel at but features include Biggie Smalls depicted on the bonnet with Tupac on the boot lid. The black and white image of Tupac is of almost photographic quality. Dollar Bills embellish both sides whilst the stars and stripes flow over the roof. 18-carat gold leaf and Sterling Silver has been used to decorate various areas and Swarovski Crystals are set into the alloy wheels. The bullet holes are painted with such a deft touch that you want to feel them. Hand airbrushed with brush detailing, this piece of work is truly outstanding. Mechanically sound, this Mercedez is in good order and drives extremly well. Considering the values that Paul acquires in art galleries worldwide, this car is the perfect example of unique masterpiece.
