Bruce Kaiser

I've been a car nut, auto racing fan and artist for as long as I can remember. I guess I began drawing cars, air planes and space ships as soon as I could hold a pencil and I really got hooked when my parents took us to the 1963 United States Grand Prix at Watkins Glen, NY. for vacation. Anybody that's been there knows what an amazing experience it is to camp in the infield at Watkins Glen during a race!

I began my art career as an advertising artist and graphic designer after graduating from the Art Institute of Boston. After 16 years at a local ad agency, I decided to give it a go on my own. I currently create advertising art for many street rod, muscle car a and race car equipment manufacturers. My advertising art, cutaways, exploded views, line art and full color illustration have appeared in most major street rod and muscle car enthusiast magazines and client catalog designs have won numerous trade association design and printing awards.

Besides working on old cars, my other passion has always been drawing and painting them and, fortunately, I have become well known as an automotive fine artist over the years. Working in gouache or acrylics, I strive to capture the noise and excitement of racing cars and how much fun it was hanging out at a burger place with my friends on a hot summer night watching all the hot cars. It's important to me to to make my paintings as technically accurate as possible and I spend a lot of time researching each subject. Limited edition signed and numbered prints are available of many of the paintings.

My paintings and prints have been exhibited at the Las Vegas SEMA Hot Rod Heritage Fine Art Exhibit and at the Gallery Automania Hot Road Heritage Art Exhibit in Rochester, Michigan. The painting "Jim Hogg County" was the first artwork used on the cover of Street Rodder Magazine. I've also written and illustrated articles for Street Rodder and Custom Rodder Magazines. I was very proud to be commissioned to paint the cover illustration for the book "Road Rockets", one of the titles in a limited edition reprint of author Henry Gregor Felson's famous early 60s hot rod novels for young people.

I also do automotive design and concept renderings for custom car builders like Posies Rods and Customs, Juliano's and Heidt's.

My wife Tina and I live in upstate New York, north of Albany, with our two dogs and have a son, Warren. We enjoy taking Tina's 67 Rambler Rogue convert to cruises and car shows around the country and working on our other old cars.
