Vaclav Zapadlik Introduction :
"Vaclav brings a passion to every aspect of his work," says Williams. "When I first saw his work, I knew how fabulous it was. Over the past years he has become a friend as well, and I feel that he deserves to be recognized for his talent. I a very glad to be able to introduce Vaclav's work to the automotive world."
Most of Zapadlik's works are of scenes from the Golden Age of motorsports and show images of intense interest or action that capture more detail than larger works by other artists. The racing scenes are Zapadlik's own visions of actual historical events which are nothing less than slices carved from the collective mind of racers and enthusiasts. While he never experienced living in the moment he was painting, he conveys with every brush stroke a sense of accuracy. There is an astounding attention to intimate detail, such as different tire tread on the front wheel of a speeding Mercedes. His racing scenes are amalgams of racing memories, made up moments from actual, although unwitnessed events.
Compared already to the likes of such fine automotive artists as Peter Helck, Zapadlik is definitely a unique presence in the art world. His canvases at once have a warm, nostalgic feel not unlike Rockwell, that is presented in a style full of drama and life, as if famed black and white photographer Klemantaski's vivid racing shots had been captured by color and canvas rather than shutter and film.
