People from all over the world love cars!
Thousands of automotive artists capture these beauties in still life! New automobiles, old cars, classics, muscle cars, tricked-out vehicles, wicked custom trucks,
anything on wheels! Consumers flock to see them where ever they are. General Motors, Ford Motor Company, and the Chrysler Corporation were responsible for
some of the hottest and most desired cars in history. The homeland was 'Detroit Michigan' where it all originated! The cars and trucks from Detroit changed the
world, and it all commenced in 1903 with Henry Ford! Looking to speed up manufacturing, Ford implemented the first assembly line. With this technique, he could
produce cars faster and more efficiently, making them for the first time affordable for the average customer. And the average customer purchased them like
hotcakes! At the same time, America's cultural scene flourished. Led by the almighty auto barons, the US blossomed with new buildings, museums, and theaters
built by the world's top architects. Music streamed from corner bars and nightclubs, Barry Gordy's Motown Sound was in high gear and artists like Diego Rivera
captured the time in still life. Today, the effects of the automobile are everywhere! Automobiles changed the way we live, where we work, and how we play. The
automobile led to the development of suburbia, the creation of a national highway system, and the development of a population entranced with the possibility of
going anywhere anytime. It's a freedom everyone relishes. Everlasting memories of the automobile!
Danny Whitfield - Automotive Artist and Designer
His life has been dedicated to the 4 wheeled wonder Henry Ford made famous and millions of people drive each year, The Magnificent Automobile!
The Artworld is a crazy place..
And there seems to be no limit as to what the next renaissance masterpiece will fetch! The same collector mayhem transpires in the auto world, with top examples
of our favorite cars going for millions of dollars. Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, Danny Whitfield brought his vision of art and cars to the forefront and has
been the crucial artist in making automobile art a respected form in the industry. He has a magical talent to bring out the beauty of a vehicle and expression vividly
onto canvas. Danny draws, paint, and does many varieties of art from scenic, architectural, to portraits. Nevertheless, his affinity for vehicles is his first love. Believe
it or not, he started drawing at age five. After attending The Center of Creative College in Detroit and Macomb County College in Michigan his affinity for the
automobile led him to a career with Ford, General Motors, and other design manufacturers.
Although he enjoyed creating fine art pieces, the art public didn't appear to embrace him with open arms, initially. The industry for the most part hadn't expanded
its vision yet to see this type of artistry as a valid genre. Since then, and determined not to be held back, Whitfield continued to do his fine art pieces and
broadened his efforts to have the automotive art genre be more greatly accepted. As a result, he is seen as a key artist in moving this art scene forward. His work
has been featured as wall hangings, posters, published in magazines, car designs, and highlighted throughout the world.
Automotive Art has taken on a new meaning and identity.. No longer perceived or dismissed as cartoonist commercial art, automtoive art has earned its legitimate
position in the world of fine art right next to Norman Rockwell and Pablo Picasso. Dannys passion for the automobile is the highest among the most hardcore car
aficionados and is perceived as a modern-day Michelangelo. Giving us art in our time that future generations will view in residences, galleries, car shows, and
museums. The excitement in his artwork will make deep internal connections to future generations of the automotive world.

To the right are six sketches produced when he was in high school. He
drew them between 1974 and 1975 while attending Henry Ford High
school in Detroit Michigan. That Mustang you see was the very first
illustration he was paid for! A fellow student asks if he would draw his
brother's Mustang to look exactly like his car. Once complete he showed
the drawing to his friend and he was so overjoyed he paid him $7.00 for
That red checkmark on the Pontiac Grand Am drawing was genuine credit
he received from a substitute teacher. She saw that he was working hard
but not on his math like he was supposed to.
At the time his work portrayed the drag racing craze of the 60s and '70s,
Big engines in small cars, custom woodies T-buckets, and more.
