Amore De Deus

When a champion and hero is taken too soon, it creates a legend. Immortality comes when that legend is perpetuated and even accelerated by impassioned worshipers around the world, with some legends so powerful that those stories shall be told and celebrated forever to create an almost saintly deity. Immortality, spirituality, and transcending to another dimension aren't exclusively religious notions, but equally for many it cannot be separated from the love of God.

Do Amor De Deus.


An 18 month journey to create this homage to my own personal hero, Ayrton Senna of Brazil. In perpetuity with a life-size hyper-realistic bronze, marking 30 years since that tragic weekend in Imola. Never forgotten.

"The thing is with inspiration, is that you never get any warning before it hits you…”

When I unveiled the Senna’s life-size ‘Eau Rouge’ bronze, everything changed. I’d been creating sculpture for a while, had already been F1’s official artist for many years and live painted regularly for teams and with Paddock Club. Indeed it was this exposure which gave me the confidence to invest so heavily in the 18 month project it took to create, but I could never have predicted where this trajectory would lead. Launched at Autosport International in January 2019 and ‘Eau Rouge’ immediately went viral through socials and motorsport press, my world went nuts, and it’s ever since been what I’m principally known for, and introduced as. McLaren bought No.1 to stand next to his dominant MP4/4 on their famous MTC boulevard and suddenly I was part of the most iconic F1 museum in the world, employed from then on to celebrate McLaren’s own history with bronze effigy’s of each of their champions, at least 10 years’ work in all. Each statue is painstakingly recreated focusing on dynamic, character and the most accurate detail, with assets borrowed from McLaren’s own archives and even the champions own DNA, using James Hunt’s son Freddie as body double in his father’s race suit. Following Ayrton, McLaren’s inspirational founder Bruce was unveiled in June 2020 by his daughter Amanda, to mark 50 since his passing. Niki Lauda was next in May 2021 to mark 3 years, and James Hunt in 2023 to commemorate 30 years. Who’s next? Stay tuned... As with most of my sculpture work limited editions are created in several scales; life-size, 60%, and 20%.
