Tom Fritz from Ventura County, California is an artist who’s automotive themes represent the Southern California car culture during the 60’s and 70’s. It is colorful and impressionistic that’s beautifully composed and lit with a hint of drama, power, beauty, and action. I think it’s simply fantastic. He’s a member of the Automotive Fine Arts Society and he’s won numerous awards including the prestigious Peter Helck Award seven times, the Art Fitzpatrick Award twice at the Pebble Beach Concours, several Athena Awards and the Lincoln Award of Excellence. His work has appeared on numerous printed pieces, magazines, in museums, corporate offices, concours posters, and private collections. Five of his works were chosen by the U.S. Postal Service for the Muscle Cars Forever stamp series. I simply love Tom’s work.
