Otro de los ingredientes de la cultura popular de los Estados Unidos del siglo pasado… los coches de carreras, los coches preparados, hot-rods, muscle cars…  Derek nos entrega uno más, esta vez un dragster monstruoso que bebe de las fuentes primordiales de Ed “Big Daddy” Roth, Stanley Mouse, o Von Dutch.

DEREK YANIGER (Arkansas, USA, 1960)

Yaniger spent much of his professional career with companies like Marvel Comics and Cartoon Network, working on successful series such as DexterPowerpuff Girls and Transformers, until one day he decided, in the artist’s own words, “to dance to the beat of my own bongos”.

Since then he has exhibited at art galleries in several different countries, become the lead designer for the world’s best retro festivals and conventions (Tiki Oasis, Viva Las Vegas, Wild Weekend, etc.), and published his work in prestigious popular publications such as BarracudaAtomicCar Kulture Deluxe and Tiki Magazine.

Yaniger’s visual universe is populated by Beatniks, Polynesian Tiki statues, hula dancers, saucy strippers, 1950s office girls, car races, cocktails, monsters, jazz bands and more.
