About The Artist:
Don Packwood is an acclaimed New Zealand artist whose work is in many private collections around the world.
Don is the resident motorsport artist at the International Art Centre in Parnell Auckland, New Zealand and a life member of The Bruce McLaren Trust.
As you move through his website you will note that Don has recently been appointed official artist to a number of prestigious international events and organizations encompassing motorsport.
This is fine recognition of Don’s outstanding talent and international reputation.
Born in the summer of 1949.
An inherited mechanical engineering background encouraged my wide range of artistic interest’s particularly classic and vintage cars.
Cars have been so much a part of our lives over the years and many examples in my view are works of art. A tribute to the artisans who originally crafted them.
For an artist to reproduce one of these fine automobiles as an image on canvas is curtainly a challenge in capturing the mood of the moment, to portray the machine and the personalities who drove them. Learning to understand what is required of me as an artist in my chosen subject.
I thank you for taking the time to visit and I hope you enjoyed your stay.
