Painter Keith Weesner is one of our favourite artists with hierarchy in the hotrod camp. His passion for car culture and vintage pin up illustration shines through in his meticulous paintings which show his keen eye for the subtleties of retro style. Weesner is known for a painted world involving hotrods, vampy women, brooding characters and cinematic panoramas – it is this incredible attention to detail.
His style has even been likened to greats such as golden age illustrators N.C. Wyeth and Andrew Loomis, and 20th century painters Sargent and Hopper. His work appears frequently in car magazines worldwide, including Rodder’s Journal, Hot Rod Deluxe, Cruisin’, and Model Car, which featured an article on his Hot Wheels design proposals for Mattel. Weesner is also known for his talented hand in the animation industry, having created backgrounds for the likes of Bruce Timm’s Batman, Superman and Justice League as well as Power Puff Girls and Gary Baseman’s Teacher’s Pet.
