We often recognize photographers for their creative juices and incredible talents behind a camera; however, artists come in many shapes and sizes. In the car world, guys like Orhan Ozvatan are few and far between. Orhan lives halfway across the world in Istanbul, Turkey, but he's got this magical hand which allows him to draw practically anything he sees, which is why it was a pleasant surprise when he chose our 2020 Toyota Supra project car as his next masterpiece.
Orhan doesn't get to travel much but follows car scenes from around the world thanks to the Internet. Not too long ago, I posted a photo of our A90 Supra on Instagram. It was taken by staff shooter Renz Dimaandal in the canyons of Malibu. The photoshoot featured some incredible rolling fog backdrops that looked straight out of a horror movie. I'm happy to release the entire set today; however, just as stoked to show you what Orhan has created using Renz's action photo as his canvas.
The 28-year-old has been drawing since he was a little kid and currently pays the bills by working on more traditional art—something he's done over the last ten years. Cars (especially heavily modified cars) are his passion, though. Thanks to social media, he's been able to meet many enthusiasts from halfway around the globe, having drawn everything including supercars in Europe, off-road vehicles in Australia, muscle cars in America and more.
Orhan's drawing of our Supra took 10 hours using 20 different colored pencils. And for the skeptics out there, you can watch a full time lapse of his illustration on YouTube. Maybe we're just inept artistically, but it is absolutely mind-blowing how Orhan is able to fill in the colors, lines and gradation so perfectly, from the grille detail in the front bumper to the contours of the hood, gold BBS LM wheels in motion and warm tones reflected in the paint. It's truly a pencil art drawing we'd frame and hang up on our wall.
If you're interested in having your car transformed into a drawing, we recommend DM'ing Orhan on his Instagram @orhanozvatan.
