Dear Friends,

We invite fellow car aficionados to take a spin through the “Sequential” exhibit, an avant-garde compilation of automotive sculptures by the talented French artist Antoine Dufilho on display at the MB&F M.A.D.Gallery in Geneva.

By merging an undeniable passion for cars with principles from his studies in medicine and architecture, Dufilho designs intricate automotive art accentuating the classic curves of coveted automobiles. In the Sequential collection, Dufilho creates an enviable line-up of eight famed automobiles, from a Ferrari 250 GTO and Bugatti Atlantic to a Mercedes W196 Streamliner, scaled-down and transformed into impressive artistic renditions built by hand.


Working out of his workshop in France, Antoine Dufilho decomposes the sleek lines and shapes of each vehicle into successive layers materializing into a modern automotive framework and revealing the contour of the car. “This sequenced representation provides a kinetic effect as the observer views the piece from different perspectives causing the sensation of a static object in movement. The dynamic effect is accentuated by alternating symmetries and asymmetries proving the feel of acceleration or deceleration,” explains the creator.

Dufilho’s artistic expertise is apparent in a sexy silhouette of the iconic Bugatti Type 57S Atlantic with polished stainless steel plates and bronze wheels, parked on a polished aluminum base. The sculpture measures approximately 76 cm in length and 20 cm tall with a width of 33 cm and is limited to ten pieces in addition to two artist editions.


Another example of Dufilho’s imaginative technique is a rendition of the Aston Martin DB5, a car produced from 1963 to 1965 and often referred to as the ‘James Bond car’ that first appeared in Goldfinger. Using shaped stainless steel pieces strategically layered he presents the front end of the Aston Martin as if it were racing through the polished stainless steel wall mounting. Only eight pieces and four artist editions are available in this limited edition.


Dufilho’s portfolio includes the legendary Ferrari 250 GTO model with a fuselage handcrafted in resin and finished with automotive paint enhancing the aerodynamic appeal of the car. The sleek lines and smooth, black surface of this work of art emphasizes Ferrari’s devotion to speed, even while parked on a 75 cm x 35 cm polished aluminum base. The Ferrari 250 GTO is available in a limited edition of eight pieces and four artist editions.


The creativity continues in a one-of-a-kind piece depicting the Jaguar E-Type, a superstar of the motoring world. In order to compose the sculpture Dufilho handcrafted 2,250 stainless steel rods, each measuring only 2 mm in diameter and colored to emphasize the exquisite aesthetics of the automobile. Once the rods are all strategically and meticulously placed, one by one on a rosewood base, viewers can discover a lightweight and airy representation of this renowned motorcar. Due to its unique construction, when rotating the base or walking past it feels as though the car is in motion. Standing 24 cm tall and 78 cm in length this miniaturized Jaguar is sure to look better in the home than the garage.


Rounding out this exceptional fleet of artful automobiles in the Sequential collection is the Mercedes W196 Streamliner, Auto-Union-Avus, and Porsche 356. In a similar successive style and available as a wall mount is the customized Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato. Cruise into the M.A.D.Gallery in Geneva to take a look at the line-up of masterpieces signed by Dufilho although you might not be able to drive away without one!
