REVS Art – Praise The Lord For This Classic Art Collection [Gallery]

Whilst the term ‘the lord works in mysterious ways’ cannot be found anywhere in the Bible, our classic non-believing brethren would be forgiven for shouting ‘Hallelujah’ from their man cave roof tops, after witnessing the breath taking artwork by Rev’d Adam Gompertz.

REVS Art

REVS art is a processional development of Adams passion for cars, which he has embraced since being a child. His infatuation with the legendary Aston Martin is particularly poignant, having had a family friend who sold them. His first excursion in an Aston was at the age of five years old, an experience he would never forget.

As the aspiring car designer, the young enthusiastic 27 year old swiftly headed to Coventry University, studying Transportation design. This resourceful move was ultimately to include a placement at MG Rover, where he worked right up until the collapse of the company.

Rolls-Royce

The effervescent Rev’d moved into design consultancy, yacht design, ultimately finishing as a designer, within a bespoke team, at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars in Goodwood.

In 2010, divine intervention was to diminish his links with Rolls-Royce, his pathway leading directly to theological college.

Inspired

Adam says his art is really inspired by great artists such as Gordon Crosby (the original Autocar artist), Bob Freeman (whose work graced the pages of Car magazine and Supercar Classics back in the 70’s and 80’s) and latterly the work of Stefan Marjoram.

Using the traditional designers technique of a drawing in ball point biro, to which colour is applied by using pastels that are scrapped with a knife and the resultant dust is mixed with talcum powder (the talc polishes out the pastel).

Then fixative is sprayed between each application of pastel. Some drawings can have up to 5 or 6, maybe even 8 layers of pastel.

Working mainly on commissions at the moment, when time allows, Adam loves ‘live sketching’ at events like Goodwood, and the Bicester Heritage Scramble, which hones in those very intricate drawing skills, but also allows people to come and chat in the process.

Rev’d Adam Gompertz said:
“One day I would love the chance to do it at something like the Windsor Concours, or even the Pebble Beach events.

“I am especially excited about the ‘Doodle a Day’ posts which are a bit like Radio 4’s Thought for the day – but for petrolheads They are a sketch, a simple thought and a prayer, and people really appear to appreciate them whether they are ‘religious or not”.

    • Hi Peter, it is one the Hillman Imp family as per the reply from CCC. It’s the model known as a Sunbeam Stiletto which was the sporty coupe version of the imp and quite rare now. It’s my fathers car and we commissioned Adam to draw it as a 70th birthday present. Adams skills are truly breathtaking and we are so pleased with it.
