Motorsport Art by Nicolas Cancelier

Submitted by on February 23, 2010

Check out these beautiful artworks by Nicolas Cancelier. I’m a real fan of his work, as it really captures the essence of the eras represented and the styles are so varied.

Here is a some background on Nicolas in his own words.

“Motorsports and art are the two things that have surrounded me since my youth.

I was born of artistic parents, and when I was young, one of our neighbors, a mechanic, brought me to races at famous circuits such as ‘’Spa’’ and the old ‘’Nurburgring’’. Naturally, I transferred this passion for racing onto paper and canvas.

Self-taught as an artist, one of my great pleasures is to immerse myself in the history of my subjects. My favorite periods cover the 1950s, the 1960s and the 1970s and I create my works using various medium, including oils, watercolor, pastels, and pencil.

My original art is available, as are numerous limited editions and a collection of 30 different postcards. I also take on commissioned work ”
