Danny Day’s “King of the Cobras”
As a tribute to the late Carroll Shelby, Danny Day is adding this newest creation to his auto racing artwork portfolio. Painted with oils on canvas, the classic Shelby Cobra emerges from the billowing smoke behind, in all of its muscle car glory. From behind, the ominous King Cobra rises menacingly, overseeing Carroll Shelby’s master creation.
Danny has created many pieces of artwork depicting the Shelby line of cars, and was honored to have Carroll Shelby collaborate with the projects by signing the limited editions and participating in joint shows. In collaboration with Calvin Charles Gallery, Danny has created this beautiful piece of original art and has authorized a small number of Giclees to be produced from the original. The edition will consist of only 24 Giclees and will be sold as a package with an 8×10 pencil drawing lithograph of one of the Shelby cars, which is also signed by Carroll Shelby. This unique and rare opportunity is exclusively available through the Calvin Charles Gallery.
Automotive Artist Danny Day will unveil two new original paintings in tribute to the late automotive icons Carroll Shelby and Phil Hill. Special limited editions signed by the artist will be available.
Lori Cozen-Geller’s “Ferrari Red”, “Lamborghini Yellow” and “Famous Shelby Blue”
Lori is a Modern Contemporary artist whose pieces evoke the strength and elegance of the greatest automotive marks, using factory-made paints in Ferrari Red, Lamborghini Yellow and the famous Shelby Blue.
