BMW E39 M5 S62 Art
I am fascinated by complex mechanical machines, their intricate and interconnected parts, each shaped to dictate a function in the collective whole. I started by taking engine part diagrams for the BMW S62 motor, simplifying them – only to assemble them in a large functional subunit of the engine. By keeping the design to lines and simple shading, the individual components are what draw the emphasis.
Individuality and Quality
( The press these prints are made on)
Having access to a wide array of printing options, I opted for one that would make each piece unique in its own way. These prints are made on a press that predates most humans alive, itself a complex mechanical piece of art. The design has been etched out of a sheet of magnesium, yet with every roller, the tiny variations in ink loading assure that no two prints are identical. In fact, the valve cover surfaces almost seem to emulate the real life texture of the BMW M5 and Z8 S62 engine.
These are printed on thick 8″ x 10″ paper and are individually numbered
