Mark Stehrenberger Art Exhibition

Crown Classics & Exotics, 6100 King Drive, Ventura 

Artist Mark Stehrenbergerwas born and raised in Switzerland, but was inspired by the American “Yank Tanks” of the late 1950s with their huge proportions and tailfins. He began his long career designing concept cars and accessories for an international clientele, including all of the most famous marques. He taught automotive design at the Art Center of Design in Pasadena. With dual citizenship, he currently lives in Oxnard, California; and Montreux, Switzerland. 

This event will highlight the more recent art pieces of Mark Stehrenberger, including work created for Bugatti, Ferrari, Citroen, Mercedes-Benz, Alfa Romeo, and Ford. Locals may recognize Stehrenberger from his appearance as the Honoree of the 2022 Montecito Motor Classic car show. Car buffs will recognize Stehrenberger’s artwork from Car & Driver and Motor Trend magazines. His concept car pieces served as the predecessor to today’s “spy cam” photos of new auto designs. 

Michelle Annette Leveille of Crown Classics & Exotics, is ebullient about the upcoming event. “Whether you’re into exotic cars or not, you’re bound to be impressed by Mark’s vision, as well as his artistic and technical prowess.”
