Automotive Fine Arts Master Tom Fritz Proudly Announces
Premier of Five Original Oil Paintings

Automotive Fine Arts Master Tom Fritz proudly announces the premier of five original oil paintings during his return to both the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona and the Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona, California this January. In addition, this will be the first time his newest Harley-Davidson authorized original, "Percussion Discussion" will be shown to the public. Fritz's exhibit will be in the main tent at Barrett-Jackson and in Building 6 at the Grand National Roadster Show. You can also catch the artist working on originals in his booth at Barrett-Jackson.

As one of the few transportation artists who has elevated himself above the camera, his interpretations have set him apart from the others and are sought after by discerning private and corporate collectors. "If Art were only the perfection of precise detail, the camera would put me out of work. My work focuses on transposing a thought; a representational interpretation of something I feel on an emotive level. The power in my work boils down to suppressing what's inconsequential and accenting what's important using crisp color and light. I bring to the table something the camera can never do."

"Ears'r Gonna Be Ringing", oil on canvas, 16" x 20". For more information, please contact the Studio.

Fritz is a member of the Automotive Fine Arts Society (AFAS) and is the only artist to have been won the prestigious Peter Helck Award (Best-of-Show at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance) an unprecedented five times. He is also licensed by Harley-Davidson Motor Company, and has had his creations published in numerous publications worldwide.

"Somethin' To Slobber Over", oil on canvas, 12" x 24".  For more information, please contact the Studio.
