Amalgam Collection collaborates with Alan Thornton to create art prints of iconic Aston Martin models, Valkyrie and DB5.
In a striking collaboration that fuses Aston Martin’s excellence and artistic mastery, Amalgam Collection, renowned for its large-scale model cars, has embarked on a new venture with artist Alan Thornton. This partnership aims to embody the essence of Aston Martin’s most iconic models, the Valkyrie and DB5, into artistic prints perfect for any home, office, or garage. The project aims to offer Aston Martin enthusiasts an exclusive opportunity. Owners of the marque’s most extreme and valuable cars can commission personalized art collections, transforming their prized possessions into stunning conversation pieces. Thornton, with his limited annual commissions, is set to deliver unique artistic interpretations, capturing these investment-grade automobiles in their full glory.
The process is highly customizable, from the format and size to the media and print quantity, ensuring a one-of-a-kind experience. Thornton’s extensive background in portrait photography adds a compelling dimension, offering large format prints that beautifully portray both the car and its proud owner. Thornton’s artistry delves into the designer’s intent, blending technical skill with a deep passion for automotive subjects, resulting in captivating artworks that resonate with car fanatics. Thornton’s approach is a meticulous three-stage process. It begins with high-resolution studio photography, focusing on lighting and angles. The second stage involves digital enhancement, creating hyper-realistic images with rich tonality. The final stage brings these visions to life through traditional hand screen printing or dye sublimation, using bespoke color mixes to mirror the car’s finishes. Presenting these artworks to Aston Martin’s designers generated an enthusiastic response, cementing this collaboration in Amalgam’s history books.
