During 2020, Spanish artist Felipe Pantone painted a supercar and a Carbon Club aircraft: The Stranger’ and ‘INTR3PID’. And now, it’s time for them to meet each other!
“As an artist, I want to represent my times, and when I look at it… I see speed, transformation, dynamism”
– Felipe Pantone
The digital world and how we consume it has decisively modified the way we perceive the world: speed and dynamism are present nowadays in different ways in our lives.
The vitality of Pantone’s work is in being a meditation of a present “way of seeing”: Glitch, iridescence, dynamics, distortion: the play of lights and color ranges that Pantone carries out takes us to reflect on the visuality of new languages. The interaction between these new encoded graphic languages takes place due to the new technological processes and modern machines.
Over a year ago, Felipe Pantone, Joan Escribá, and Joan Comas got together to plan the construction of the INTR3PID, a Carbon Cub which is the highest performance adventure aircraft in the world. Lightweight and powerful, the INTR3PID livery designed by Felipe Pantone seems to enhance the dynamic properties of the classic Piper Super Cub, an American light aircraft first built in 1938, on which the Carbon Cub is based.
Felipe Pantone created a bespoke design, a glove-like fit in this classic that intensifies the sense of speed and dynamism.
