Mattel Disney Pixar CARS: New Martin Arriola Art

Michael C. has added another masterpiece to his collection … another Martin Arriola original for his display …

Throughout his career at Mattel, Martin had the pleasure of working with John Lasseter for many years on the Disney Pixar Cars line (as well as A Bug’s Life and Ratatouille). Through this endeavor, they worked together on numerous DPC projects in meetings, designing, presentations etc in fact, every single sku had to be approved by John before it moved on to production. It was joked that to get John’s sku approval was akin to getting the “Pope’s” blessing!

John is an icon of the Disney Pixar Cars world and the main reason that I decided there would be no better car than John Lassetire’s diecast character for Martin to paint from my next commission. After several days of deciding which background should be used (so many great options) we decided it should be Radiator Springs with Cadillac Range as the background. This was a natural choice! Invariably, we named it Radiator Springs Sunrise with John Lassetire”

Original gouache painting is rendered on hot pressed 300lb Strathmore water color paper. (14″x10″)
