Nicolas Hunziker is an automotive artist that is fueled by passion. He is a fourth generation painter whose roots in creativity go back to his great-grandfather who was a classically trained painter. His grand uncle was the famous Prince Bira of Siam who was the first Thai, Grand-Prix motor racing driver. Nic’s style, which he calls Period Correct Art, is bold, colorful, graphic, and has a definitive racing theme. You’ll find his work in magazines, on posters, apparel, films, and painting including murals and commissioned artwork that hangs in some of the most famous collections around the world. Nic’s latest venture is his Art Car Project. He is backdating a 2004 GT3 in to a 1999 GT3 R, but a street version. He will fund everything in trade for his artwork.
