IS AN ARTIST AND CARS ARE HIS CANVAS
Liz Turner : Journalist
Dubbed one of the most prolific independent car designers on the scene today. Andy’s work knows no boundaries.
His ideas jump erratically across a number of thoughts and patterns from concours restorations to mind blowing designs with an unrivalled eye for detail. Recognised from The Melbourne Motor Show to the BBC’s Top Gear Andy’s one off sculptures have certainly seen global success, including one installation receiving 76 nominations for Turner Prize. Andy’s creativity doesn’t just start and stop with customised vehicle design; he is also a published author and painter.
The Automotive Alchemist. By Andy Saunders. Published November 2022.
The book is not only an autobiography, but also a history of car design as seen through my eyes, with unseen photos from the Dream Car Period never before published.
“Andy is an artist of rare talent who has an eye for the unusual and the skill and determination to turn his vision into a stunning reality. This has made him something of a celebrity in the car world. I have witnessed first hand some of his finest work in progress and his down to earth approachable nature made working with him a fun and rewarding experience.”
Stephen Vokins. Corporate Relations Manager. Beaulieu National Motor Museum.
“Andy Saunders is quite simply one of the most original and creative car designers / builders in the world. His standards are exceptionally high, he is hard working but also humourous and very easy to get on with and he can explain mechanical and stylistic concepts very well in his charming and distinctive accent. He is as much an artist as he is a car builder and that approach makes him very unusual in the automotive world.”
John Lakey. Assistant producer BBC.
