C8: Art Object

A work of art can move you. A great work of art inspires you. We asked five North American artists who work in mediums ranging from watercolor to digital illustration to photography to share how the C8 Corvette ignites their creative spark.

FROM THE ARTIST: “I really enjoyed working on this project,” says Felix Hernandez, a Mexican artist who is known for building amazing miniatures and lighting them to create stunning, fantastical worlds. “I had plenty of liberty to create and experiment with new things I had never done before. And even better, I was able to do it using a motorsports icon like the Corvette!”

You can see Felix’s final artwork above, and watch the video showing how he created it below.

JAE MARTIN / Brooklyn, New York / “C8 by Jae”
Painted plywood, hand cut, mounted on a 36″ by 48″ wood panel
FROM THE ARTIST: “The C8 was painted in the same style as I would have painted the portrait of a person,” says Jae Martin, a self-taught pop artist. “To capture the life that this car illuminates, I used bright colors that display the fun owners have while driving. This beautiful beast represents the Jae Martin mantra to ‘Live, Love, Laugh,’ and the portrait demonstrates that and more.”

MOH’D BILBEISI / Stillwater, Oklahoma / “Scarlet”
13″ x 19″ Sennelier (French watercolor pigment) on paper
FROM THE ARTIST: “The intent is to highlight the stance and the spirited form associated with the car,” says Moh’d Bilbeisi, a professor of architecture at Oklahoma State University whose works are known for their unique dynamism, elegance, and technique. “The red hue is my favorite: passionate and aggressive. I painted the thought behind the automobile, not the automobile itself!”

FROM THE ARTIST: “When I first saw pics of the C8 Corvette, it looked otherworldly to me, so I wanted to put it in some ‘other Earth,’” says Rachelle Baker, a multidisciplinary artist inspired by Shoujo manga, anime, comics bad girls, and the music culture of the late ’90s. “It’s on some alternate planet—similar to ours, but cooler!”
