With the Lamborghini’s full lineup of vehicles on display at the Lamborghini Lounge Monterey, including the newest sportscar Huracán EVO and EVO Spyder integrated with predictive technology, The Lounge Monterey also saw special-edition private unveilings. The marque commenced the weekend’s festivities with an exclusive event to unveil a pop interpretation of the Aventador S by the American artist Skyler Grey, one of the youngest and most influential representatives of street art worldwide. It is also the first Lamborghini to be certified via blockchain technology.
Skyler Grey has become a nineteen-year-old contemporary art anomaly, often referred to as “The Fresh Prince of Street Art.” He is also sensationally known as the youngest artist ever to be internationally exhibited in art fairs including SCOPE during Art Basel in Switzerland, and Art Wynwood in Miami. In his paintings, Grey mashes images of pop culture icons such as Popeye, Olive Oyl, Mickey Mouse, and Wonder Woman, and fuses them with luxury and fashion iconography via inclusion of logos such as Chanel, Hermes, and Louis Vuitton, allowing the artist to create his own commentary on what he considers Pop today.
Inspired by, and often compared to contemporary art masters such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, and Keith Haring, Grey combines bold colors, silk-screening layers, acrylic, spray-paint, and touches of diamond dust, to create his own distinctive flair and style. Grey’s works have been exhibited at art fairs and venues in London, Vancouver, Miami, New York, Los Angeles and Dubai. In 2017, Grey was featured in Forbes Magazine’s “30 Under 30” Art and Style Edition. Earlier in the same year his work was added to the permanent collection of the Coral Springs Museum of Art.
