Craig Mark (Kizo Art Consultants) introduced South African photographer Clint Strydom to Aston Martin in 2006. Aston Martin’s CEO Dr Ulrich Bez and head designer Marek Reichman were impressed by Clint’s work and Aston Martin commissioned Clint to create a series of artworks inspired by the Aston Martin brand.
Aston Martin Elements, a collection of contemporary artworks created by Clint, was recognised as part of Aston Martin’s brand identity for roll out via their network of 140 dealerships around the world.
The works already grace the walls of the Aston Martin Design Studio and Head Office in Gaydon U.K. and their showrooms in Vienna, Japan, China, Singapore, Ohio USA and South Africa.
The Aston Martin Elements collection is available exclusively to Aston Martin dealers at present. Clint has however agreed to launch some of his other Aston Martin images to the public following extensive demand from Aston Martin owners and art collectors.
