Tes One Live-Paints for CondÃ© Nast and New Corvette Stingray
Condé Nast Media Group asked Tes One to partake in its Corvette Precision Drive Event and create an artwork inspired by the 2014 Stingray.
Over the course of three days at the end of February, Tes worked on his piece, "Fast Forward," at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California, as car enthusiasts and subscribers to Condé titles Architectural Digest, GQ, Golf Digest, and Wired watched. "By utilizing colors directly from the Corvette line, I wanted to convey a balance of speed and serenity," the artist explained. "The technology involved in the all-new Corvette is now naturally integrated into the vehicle, a concept I wanted to showcase in my painting."
The shapes and palette of the completed piece spoke to the Stingray's aerodynamic design and power; plus, the canvas was a tiled wall and attendees could take home part of the original art.
Tes One has partnered with Condé Nast in the past, live-painting a 30-foot wall in the Architectural Digest lounge at Raleigh Hotel during Art Basel Miami Beach in 2012.
