New River Fine Art would like to thank Artist and Influencer, Super Buddha for spending time with international contemporary artist, Tom Bates with past weekend.
Tom Bates turns high performance race car engines into unique, functional, blue-chip art.
Diving deep into this luxury automobile industry, the artist sources exotic and rare car engines from the finest automakers in the world. The utilitarian aspects of the handcrafted tables expose the underlying beauty of these magnificent engines while maintaining the integrity of the furniture functionality.
Featuring the signature engines, adorned with corporate logos from Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, Porsche, and Rolls Royce, Bate’s artwork allows the beauty and excitement of engines to become the focal point of an interior space, bringing the art from the wall to the floor.
Launching the new Schumacher wheel tables in the fall of 2020, Bates was able to acquire the coveted Schumacher tires from Formula One racer, Michael Schumacher. Each table is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity, signed by Tom Bates and verified by Michael Schumacher.
A unique accent in any home, Bates’ artwork enraptures the luxury car enthusiast, captivates the fine art collector and drives home the idea that these highly prized engines can be elevated into the blue-chip contemporary artworld, with his unyielding vision.
