Classic Cars West | 411 26th Street, Oakland, CA
Submitted by the Event Organizer
Celebrated Oakland artist Schultz, the “Grandfather of Steampunk” known for his fantastical salvaged vehicles and absurdist sense of visual humor, will bring eleven of his storied creations to the Classic Cars West Gallery from March 3 to April 28th.
An energetic, experimental tinkerer, Schultz’ work plays with the modern reverence for machines by unabashedly mixing together the functional and decorative, the kinetic and the supernatural, historical tidbits and timeless feeling.
Schultz’ irreverence for strict divisions means that visitors will be invited to interact with and play with his creations. This playfulness paired with his love of salvaging, recycling and re-orienting machines will provide a striking and humorous visual counterpoint to the pedigreed vehicles of the Classic Cars West showroom.
