Neil Adcock- Automotive Artist



I am a Coventry based artist specialising in automotive art and aviation art, although I also tackle a wide range of other subjects too.


I grew up with many motorsport influences with my father racing motorcycles since I was 7 years old. In supporting him at race meetings and in the workshop I developed a deep interest and understanding of both vintage and modern racing machinery. So, when l returned to painting after a break to bring up a family, the natural subject material for my work was motor sport and in particular classic racing motorcycles.


In my work I aim to bring the black and white images of past racing greats, on both 2 and 4 wheels, such as Mike Hailwood, Stirling Moss & Graham Hill to life in full colour, with my interpretation in oil paint.  Much of my works is commission work of individuals with their precious vehicles. Many of these vehicles are works of art in their own right. Whether modern or historic machinery, cars, aeroplanes or motorcycles, I always aim in my work to capture a sense of speed as well as accurate detail.


In addition to selling direct to clients, I have exhibited through local galleries and I have had work published in magazines such as the “Classic Bike Guide” and the “Motorcycle”. I also attend many local classic car event, and owners club meets, taking the opportunity to demonstrate my art wherever possible.
