Oil Paintings of Retro Vehicles by Kevin Cyr




Kevin Cyr was born in 1976 in Edmundston, New Brunswick, Canada. He grew up in Madawaska, Maine and received a BFA from Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. Cyr is currently based in Brooklyn, New York. He commemorates commercial vehicles inundated with graffiti and rust, working vehicles, and well-traveled recreational vehicles.

At a fist glance I thought these were just illustrations created with Adobe Illustrator, but boy was I wrong. The most mind-blowing part about Kevin’s drawings, is that they’re all oil paintings. His attention to detail fooled me and made me appreciate his beautiful work even more.

Kevin has been featured in numerous publications such as Juxtapoz, The New York Times, Classic Driver, Walls & Frames, Dandyhorse Magazine, and much more. Currently he is on the move showcasing his work at art exhibitions. The latest one is called; In Praise of Rust. It is running May 19—June 16, 2012 at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery. So if you are in NYC be sure to check it out!

“In a culture in which people are easily lured by the appeal of status-enhancing symbols, I find beauty in derelict cars and unkempt landscapes. I have always been interested in painting vehicles and scenes that have defined the evolution of the American landscape.” - Kevin Cyr
