One of my deepest passions in life is the automobile. Classic cars, trucks and motorcycles in particular have been an obsession as long as I can remember, growing up in France. This was actually what motivated me to come visit America, especially California. Growing up in the French countryside, it was extremely rare to spot a sports car, a custom car, or even a nicely restored antique. Magazines on the newsstands abounded with articles from sunny Southern California, and fast forward a few years, here I am, living in the heart of Orange County, California, driving a classic Chevy truck! I am mentioning this because yesterday I met another French man who not only shares my passion, but is able to turn it into amazing pieces of art. His name is Stéphane Dufour and his paintings and sculptures are just breathtaking! He creates his realistic works with pencil, acrylic, and airbrush techniques. If you share my interest in car culture, you should visit his website We also have a few of his paintings displayed and available for sale in our Tustin store.
