SEMA 2018 Event Highlights


FEATURED: PETER MAIER - ART REVEAL

The “Impossibly Real” artist began his career as an Automotive Designer for the General Motors Corporation. Since leaving GM in 1980, he has established himself in the fine arts community, creating surreal paintings that have been on display in galleries throughout the world. His layering paint process uses the Cromax® product line to create a 3-dimensional effect that cannot be achieved through traditional paint mediums.

His latest piece, Nevermore, will be unveiled in Axalta's booth with co-creator Andrew “Pooch” Cappuccio.
