Gerry Judah is a highly acclaimed artist and designer having produced many works and commissions for (to name a few) the Imperial War Museum, BBC, Led Zeppelin, designed bridges in London and Cambridge, as well as many exhibitions all over the world. He was born in Calcutta and grew up in West Bengal before moving to London at the age of 10, these colliding cultures may have had a great effect on Judah and been a starting block for his artistic flare.
Most recently, Judah was commissioned by Porsche to create a sculpture to mark the Porsche 911‘s 50th anniversary. The final product weighs in a massive 22 tonnes and features 3 Porsches: a 1963 911, a 1973 911 Carrera RS 2.7, and a 2013 911. Each car sits on the end of a huge, white steel arrow, at 35 metres high, giving the effect it is being propelled into the sky at great speed.
The sculpture was on display at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in England a few weeks ago.
Whilst we’re on this note, Dan brought Octane Magazine‘s lovely celebration of the 911 to my attention.
