Jay Koka ORIGINALS: 1987


Ferrari Mondial Study 1
Jay Koka, 40x30" (100x75cm), gouache/watercolor/ink on board Private Collection

Jay Koka: "The first Mondial painting was based on a visit to my first Ferrari Club of America Meet near Washington DC. The car is shown parked under the hotel's portico which results in that wonderful spider's web of design on the body and shadows on the paving brick.

This painting represents the height of photo-realism... a painting style which I initially embraced but soon grew tired of and eventually even came to dislike.

While on the one hand, I really like this painting which, I might add, became a wildly successful limited edition print, I wouldn't however do it today because I couldn't find a good enough reason to paint like this. None the less, almost twenty years later I think this is really well done and I am pleased it is part of my portfolio."
