Paul Oz hand-embellished canvases available from £730 via Paul Oz / email : firstname.lastname@example.org .
To many motoring fanatics cars are beautiful examples of engineering art, so why not take it one step further and purchase not only an artwork but a true focus point for the home and a eye-widening gift in the form of a Paul Oz hand embellished canvas. From the likes of the Brazilian hero Ayrton Senna, the emotional Pink for Papa tribute Jenson Button helmet and the newly crowned Triple Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton there’s something for everyone. Boxed canvas prints are also available (measuring 90cm) with paint added on top to bring it as close back to the original painting as possible.
