Ford Craftsman Studios Presents Excelsior by Laurent Durieux


David Ford loves art. So much so that his life literally revolves around it. Not only does he collect it, but he tackles huge projects producing it. Case in point, his Modes of Transportation series released through his company Ford Craftsman Studios. His idea was to approach one of the best artists in the business (Laurent Durieux) to create a series of posters depicting modes of transportation. In case you’ve been living under a rock, here are the first two entries in the series.



Delahaye Final Distribute


Ford Craftsman Studios is happy to release the much anticipated next piece in the Modes of Transportation series by Laurent Durieux.

The Excelsior poster features a 1923 Excelsior motorcycle cruising in the American Southwest on historic Route 66, also known as The Mother Road.

A lot of research went into this poster. Reference pictures online just wouldn’t do it justice, so Laurent and his brother Jack tracked down a museum in Holland that has Excelsior motorcycles so he could see one for himself.

The Excelsior is available in three versions measuring 24×36 inches, each with 13 colors.

I'm a true child of the 80s from a small town near Cleveland, Ohio. My all time favorite topics are Star Wars, slasher films and Cleveland sports (despite the misery it causes). I narrowly avoided law school, instead choosing film school. I have been accused of being a walking IMDB, but I take it as a compliment!
