Enrico Ghinato is a protagonist of Italian hyper-realist painting. His style integrates optical effects and reflections of images onto canvas. The subject of his works are classic and sports cars. He takes on the challenge of transforming photographic photos of these luxury cars into colour and form on canvas using oil painting techniques.
“Ghinato does not portray just minor subjects: he nearly always re-elaborates classic cars, great sports and collection pieces, with unique bodies, special colours, sparkling chrome and stylish, elegant details.” - president of the National Automobile Museum
Ghinato has previously collaborated with Galleria Ferrari in Italy and exhibited the Ferrari California models through his paintings back in 2008.
