John Wessels lives in South Africa and has been building model cars for decades. In 2004 it was his automotive passion that lead him to start designing and creating automotive sculptures. He founded AutCourture after showing his retro-deco designs at Techno Classics Essen in 2005. John established relations with two contacts, one in Holland and the other in England where his metal and painted metal sculptures are represented and sold to discerning collectors from around the world.
“Life is always under construction and the road to success is always under construction.”
“One has to maximize one’s UTR. Useful. Time. Remaining.”
Not being able to attend Art Center College of Design like he hoped.
After years of building models the mass of Chinese made models that were such high quality forced John to think about model building in a different way.
