Gerry Judah might not be a name instantly recognisable to the general public, but within the automotive and artistic worlds it's fair to say that he's rather a well known figure! Since 1997, when he was commissioned to work with Ferrari on their display at the Festival of Speed, he has produced an array of automotive sculptures which have become progressively more spectacular throughout the years.
Working with a different marque every year, we can't wait to see the finished piece for this year's celebration of 100 years of BMW. In the meantime, here are a few of his incredible examples of sculptural engineering from previous festivals. I think my favourite has to be the 2008 Land Rover display, in which he deviates from the sleek silver and white jet-stream like lines of his more F1 based installations and instead uses a woven wooden edifice to symbolise the rugged terrain more usually traversed by Land Rovers - he truly encapsulates the spirit of the brand and we can't wait to see his physical manifestation of BMW this year!
This year's Festival of Speed is taking place at Goodwood from 23rd to 26th June. Classic Additions will be exhibiting on stand 122 and look forward to seeing you!
