Automotive Artist Harold Cleworth

Automotive Artist Harold Cleworth talks about what has motivated him in his acclaimed career

In a just released video, Harold Cleworth talks about the arc of a career that has taken him to the pinnacle of automotive art.  You can watch it below.

Harold begins his story as young lad sketching and painting the images of industry and transport in the industrial north of England.   He got a job as a commercial graphic designer who happened to design the first two albums for the Rolling Stones and the first LP for the Who.

But he decided to give Los Angeles a try and take up fine art.  His muse was the flamboyant design of American cars of the late fifties.  Think 1959 Cadillac.  As he tells you in the video, his paintings of these cars were well received.  He became part of the nascent art scene just percolating in Los Angeles.  But I’ll let you watch the movie.
