Claude Nahum was brought up surrounded by all things automotive. The son of Bernar Nahum, considered to be the father of the Turkish automotive industry, Claude was fascinated by cars and engineering from an early age. Claude’s career led him into automotive design, research and engineering, before eventually heading and growing the Kiraça group trading company in Europe, all the while maintaining his link with the automotive world. As Claude’s career progressed, he began collecting and racing cars, and the growth of his stable led to him establishing The N Collection. Wishing to create a distinctive tribute to his favourite cars, Claude commissioned six leading artists, and gave them free rein to depict each of 25 cars from his collection in their own inimitable style.
The Automotive Art Project showcases that work.
Six respected artists provide their own unique interpretations, in a range of striking styles, for each of the 25 cars depicted.
