Automotive Artist Hugo Prado with Jay Leno

Born in 1952, Hugo Prado grew up in Miraflores a West Coast surfing suburb of Lima-Peru, South America. His main passion other than car races and surfing, was drawing. Hugo's father, Carlos, was a race car driver and responsible for importing vehicles, such as VOLVO's, BMW's, FIAT's, etc. into Peru. 'I was the most popular kid in our neighborhood', Hugo comments, 'since my father Carlos would bring a different car from the office everyday including the race cars, I couldn't wait to get home from school to see which car he would bring that day'.

After working as an illustrator in advertising. Hugo realized his life-long dream in 1989, when he decided to leave commercial art to become a full-time automotive fine artist and founded AIR ARTS, INC. Working in acrylic and watercolors sprayed through the airbrush, Hugo also uses technical pens to bring sharp detail to the final painting. His original paintings usually take anywhere from three months to a year to complete. The '1931 Duesenberg' and the 'Last Corvette Dale Raced', in honor of Dale Earnhardt, took a year to complete at a cost of $20,000 each.

His work has been seen in MOTORWEEK, and his prints have been sold on TV on QVC and auctioned by 'The World Leader of Collector Cars Auctioneers' KRUSE INTERNATIONAL.
