Andrew Kitson – motorsport artist
From Senna to Hamilton, Andrew Kitson has caught them all on canvas
The quality of Andrew Kitson’s art is not up for discussion.
The man creates absolute masterpieces. Paintings that are awash with colour and life. With every stroke of his brush, they evoke memories – and not only for the self-confessed motorsport nut who produces them.
As the action stares back at you from the canvas, you can almost smell the burning rubber and hear the roar of the engine. It takes you straight back to a time and a place where you witnessed the scene played out in front of your very eyes for the first time.
It’s that nostalgia – coupled with the jaw-dropping beauty of the pieces – that has allowed Andrew to carve out a successful career working in and around a sport he adores.
Like any fan, he loves taking those special trips down memory lane. Back to a time, an event, a race or a driver that stirs the deepest of emotions. That’s because it’s often easier to look back with a fondness that has perhaps only grown over the years that have passed rather than accept what’s happening in the here and now.
