THIS EXHIBITION OCCURRED IN THE PAST

Self confessed revhead, artist and dirt bike rider Eamon O’Toole is fuelled by his life-long passion for all things motorsport — a passion which he turns into sculptural creations of his favourite motorbikes and cars. REVHEAD pays homage to many iconic machines of speed which O’Toole has painstakingly recreated as full-scale replicas handcrafted from plastic, aluminium and paint.
Included are fan favourites such as Wayne Gardner’s world championship Honda NSR500 motorbike, Ayrton Senna’s McLaren Formula 1 car as well as an Australian workhorse – the Ute. Continuing the Australian tradition of ‘making do’, O’Toole approaches his work with the enthusiasm of a backyard inventor, and creatively problem solves by handcrafting materials into highly detailed artworks that are sure to appeal to both the motorsports enthusiast and the backyard tinkerer. REVHEAD: the motorsport art of Eamon O’Toole is presented by SpeedCafe.com.
