2021 - COVER ART FOR SCUDERIA FERRARI

Scuderia Ferrari welcomes back cover artist, Giorgio Spalletta!

ABOUT THE "ART OF FORMULA 1" SERIES

Started in 2017, this series is dedicated to Scuderia Ferrari's F1 Grand Prix cover art and the artists behind the work. It includes my interpretation of the cover, insights (did you know) into a nugget of information about the grand prix location, some words from Ferrari (track info. etc.), informational links to artist's sites and other Art of Formula 1 series works.

THE ART OF FORMULA 1: Austin Texas, USA with artist, Giorgio Spalletta

Spalletta captures the Texas sun mimicking the Royal Dutch Shell while perfectly blending the colors of the horizon with Leclerc's Ferrari as we gaze upon Austin's beautiful skyline. Formula 1 is back at COTA for the United States Grand Prix!

DID YOU KNOW?

Although the artist's cover may have been inspired by scenes of the old west, most spaghetti westerns (produced and directed by Italian movie professionals such as Sergio Leone) were filmed in Southern Italy and Spain. Most American westerns were filmed far west of Austin at locations like Big Bend National Park (approx 9 hours west) as well as in New Mexico, Arizona, and Southern California. Austin is known, however, for filming locations of these iconic films: Dazed and Confused, Death Proof, Kill Bill Volume 1, Mortal Combat, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, A Scanner Darkly as well as many Robert Rodriguez films such as The Faculty, Alita: Battle Angel, Machete, Machete Kills, Sin City, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Spy Kids, Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams, Spy Kids 3D: Game Over, Spy Kids: All the Time In the World, Planet Terror.

  • I love his artwork, and if those posters of Austin are actually printed, they will become collectors items.
