Everyone wants their van to stand out from the crowd, so how about the ultimate statement, turning your vehicle into a rolling work of art?
Steve ‘autoholic Edwards

When looking to personalise your vehicle some people use stickers, while others add metalflake to their paint, you could have any pattern, design or even a photograph by utilising a wrap. But to have something truly unique you need to get really artistic and unsurprisingly employ an artist.

Kev Hill did a portrait of his family dog at the tender age of nineteen, he found that not only was the image very good, but that he’d enjoyed the process too. He discovered a market for animal portraiture which led Kev to create images of horses too. He entered a few competitions and won his fair share; he was even crowned South Yorkshire Artist of the Year in 2004. This led him to take a Fine Arts degree as a mature student. Whilst at Uni, as part of his degree, he painted a large piece in oils that portrayed the Baptism of Christ. He didn’t want it to go to waste, so approached his local church in Rotherham to see if he could donate it to them. They liked it but had to jump through a few legal hoops before they could display it.
