This year marks the 20th anniversary since the death of the tour de force that was Ayrton Senna. A master in his field, an enigmatic presence both on and off the track and not one to shy away from controversy, Senna was the most dominant and successful Formula One driver of the modern era, and sadly, the most recent fatality. Although his career was a tumultuous one (in particular during the years he spent at McLaren locked in fierce competition with team mate Alain Prost) and his death tragic and untimely, we take the time to celebrate the life of a generous man, who brought so much joy to so many, and who’s legacy will never be forgotten.
Here in the gallery, we’re very honored to be showcasing the amazing work of Nikki Douthwaite, and her ‘Ayrton Senna’ created from hundreds of thousands of hole punched dots strategically places individually onto board with the finished product a stunningly realistic portrait to honor the man himself.
