Car renderings, artwork and paintings by Pinstripe Chris

Car rendering

By Chris Dunlop at Instagram @pinstripe_chris

As designer I’m not crazy about car design as some fellow designers are and as design online curator since 2009 I have seen thousands of  car renderings.

However when I saw the work of Chris Dunlop at his instagram  I found his work truly amazing because he mix in a very talented way the design and the art field, which is kind of difficult,or you are more engineering or technical or you are an artist, however he balance his gifts in such a way,  making it a beautiful artwork that you want in the middle of your lounge even if you are not designer or a car big fan.

I will buy mine soon!
