Cleon Peterson’s Foray Into Racing Cars
August 16, 2021
Over the Influence
JMW Motorsport invited the artist Cleon Peterson to design the Le Mans 2021 #66 Ferrari 488 GTE car. This cross-disciplinary collaboration highlights the many types of creative projects an artist can do that expands from a brick-and-mortar environment. This is Cleon’s first time to work with vehicles and design a car exterior. True to his signature style the design features mythical warriors in bold shades of white, black, and yellow. It is a perfect partnership that celebrates the energy of automobile racing with the artist’s dynamic visual aesthetic that champions human willpower and overcoming all odds to succeed.
