Arty Saturdays: After the Race

We discovered them in the Village at Le Mans Classic. After the Race is a project led by two Belgians chaps who show quite peculiar works.

Jean-Denis Claessens is a designer, fond of speed. His first company was named Boomerang. Then he raced in several rallyes with Escort RS2000 or BMW E30.

Edmond “Pogo” Thonnard is one of the pioneers of europeans street art. Being a car enthusiast too, he brings his skills in hyperrealism to After the Race.

After the Race was created as a tribute to race cars. Using bonnets or doors, mainly from Porsches and BMWs, the two guys use street art techniques to recreate the livery of these mythical cars, before “aging” them with secret recipes.

Enjoy this little sample of their work, and don’t hesitate to visit their website.
