Otherworldly. Striking. Steeped in tradition. Artist Brindha Kumar’s sports car inspired work brings the viewer to an evocative and unexpected place while maintaining an essence that is undeniably Porsche. The result? A series of surreal, yet reverent interpretations of new and classic Porsche models that thread the needle between a dreamworld and a vibrant reality.
See Brindha's Porsche-inspired artwork and read how Porsche-inspired her dreamlike vision, in her own words.
Macan is derived from the Javanese word for tiger, a fitting name to emphasize the core characteristics of this car - suppleness, power, fascination and dynamics.
"I hoped this work would itself show the limitlessness of what can be imagined and implemented in terms of design, fashion and illustration. The psychedelic racetrack scene shows the current 911 moving rightwards, pushing boundaries and bringing the classic design into the modern era as it surges forwards. The cars moving leftwards on racetrack are modelled on the classic 911 (G-Series), an instantly recognizable form that has elements which have defined Porsche design for decades."
“I hoped to build a surreal scene with the old and new both present. The new Porsche Taycan is positioned in a contemporary setting while the illustration of the Lohner–Porsche Electromobile (the very first hybrid vehicle, developed by Ferdinand Porsche), is viewed from the perspective of a seated passenger in a vintage train."
"The key focal element of the illustration is the electric motor and two speed gearbox, as the Taycan is Porsche’s first production ready all-electric sports car, truly marking a new beginning."
