Raised in the 1960s and ‘70s in San Fernando, California, Tom Fritz’s vivid recollections of the motorcycle and automotive cultures of the time shaped the motor sport artist he would become. Fritz’s style is renowned for the narrative drama he brings to his work, illuminating the relationship between man and machine. For the Muscle Cars stamps, he used bright-colored oil paints on hardboard to, in his words, “capture the emotive quality of the vehicles.” The paintings, Fritz added, are “a projection of my memories of the vehicles.”
Fritz has achieved wide acclaim for many projects, including a variety of work for Harley-Davidson. He’s also a four-time recipient of the Automotive Fine Arts Society’s prestigious Peter Helck Award.
