About the Artist – Ben Levy
A Pop RebellionBen Levy is a north London based portrait/figurative artist. People are describing Ben’s work as pop art with a rebellious twist. He conveys everyday issues that have become fashionable through the press.
The general public loves a story so Ben tries to capture political, racial, sexual and many other topics in a comic like scenario using famous faces well known throughout society. His work is extremely quirky and comical.
Asked about his work Ben explains, ‘I love the fact that as these faces keep on changing along with the stories so can the paintings. Each change, each new feature, a wrinkle or a blemish for example can be added at a later stage, it makes me feel as though the painting is never finished and I love that, it seems corrupt to sell artwork that isn’t finished and I think that says slot about the ideas behind my work. Corruption seems to be a very fashionable trait.
About the Ferrari Art Car
This 2008 Ferrari F430 Challenge has been well maintained, and still keeps the Carbon Ceramic brakes, which perform better and reduce unstrung weight. In many cases, these cars are converted to steel brakes in order to gain some economy in the operation, but the owner and driver of this car has not spared on costs to keep it competitive and in great shape.
This vehicle was fitted with an Aeromotion front bumper, splitter and rear wing. These enhancements dramatically increased the downforce and handling of the car, making it very competitive at the track. The suspension elements have been kept to factory Ferrari Challenge Series specifications, in order to accommodate entering in diverse racing events and fit the regulations.
Since 2010 the car has participated in no more than eight sprint races where it performed flawlessly. This 2008 Ferrari F430 Challenge performed extremely well and had podium finishes at Sebring with SVRA, Daytona with CCR and at the Miami 500 at Homestead Miami Speedway.
It is now know as the 2008 Ferrari Art Car.
