Jay Koka ORIGINALS: 2001

Young Girls In The Canyon
Jay Koka, acrylic on canvas, 36x48" (90x120cm), Private Collection
The 'Young Girl's...' painting inspiration came from The Mamas & The Papas song 'Twelve-thirty' which is more commonly known as 'Young Girls are Coming to the Canyon'. I'm exactly the right age to have been a fan of this group in the 60's and I happen to be listening to their 'greatest hits' CD in the Studio while contemplating a new painting of the 360 Spyder....the rest of the story is, as they say, in the painting." A large 36x48" canvas featuring the new Ferrari 360 Modena Spyder and the sheer joy of a quick ride.

Carmel Valley Road G16
Jay Koka, acrylic on canvas, 36x48" (90x120cm), Private Collection
This painting is more an expression of a feeling than a literal visual record of what I saw. One warm afternoon last summer (2000) I drove down this road with its steep embankments and overhanging trees that block all but small persistant patches of brilliant sunlight... I wasn't driving a Testa Rossa but the setting was magical none the less." Featuring a vintage Ferrari Testa Rossa

Rapid Personal Transportation
Jay Koka, acrylic on canvas, 36x60" (90x150cm), Private Collection
The car is almost completely defined by reflections...mostly dark, but full of brilliant splashes of light and the briefest hints that it is in fact a 'red' F40.

Mr Roberts
Jay Koka, acrylic on canvas, 60x36" (150x90cm), Private Collection
"I am a lifelong bike enthusiast or perhaps more accurately, a passionate sportbike enthusiast. My last two bikes have been a Suzuki GSXR750R ( the bike that's been ridden to two consecutive AMA Superbike Championships by Mat Mladin) as well as a Suzuki TL1000R and most recently, a Ducati 999, so I pay some attention to the bike world. The Roberts name is familiar to anyone with even a passing interest in bikes, but it's a new, young Kenny Roberts who's making a name for himself in 500 Grand Prix racing on board the awesome X89 Suzuki RGV500. My painting strives to capture the excitement and the talent of his ride."

Race Study 2
Jay Koka, acrylic on canvas, 60x36", Private Collection
"Everyone who knows me knows that I am not a big open wheel racing fan and because of that, I do very little racing art. In fact, my last "racing" subject piece was the Ferrari 312T2 print released in 1991. These are my latest "racing art" efforts. Number 1 was to develop the idea that was fully realized in the second. I like them both."
