The Martelli Brothers are proud to present The 2012 General Tire Mint 400 Limited Edition Artist Poster! This years poster features the work of artist Jeral Tidwell of Human Tree – and includes a thrilling image of off-road racer Mikey Childress launching his Class 1 vehicle as originally captured by Mad Media’s Director of Photography, Vincent Knakal. Jeral Tidwell is know for his modern take on classic iconic motorsports imagery including skulls, pin-stripes, and pin-up girls – all laid against killer old school hot rods. This years poster pays tribute to the Mint 400’s thirty plus years of racing history with a nod to both the racers of the past and the present.
These custom 24×32 inch three-color hand screened works of art, are being printed on heavy archival quality acid-free manila cover stock. Each print will be signed and numbered by the artist. Only four hundred prints will be made – making these posters extremely rare collectors items valued at $150 each. Each of this years Mint 400 teams will receive one poster – with the remaining limited stock to be sold on here.
In addition to the main poster run, a very special edition of “variants” will be made with a different color paper and ink, for sponsors and VIP’s of the Mint. A mere fifty variants will be created, and will be signed by both the Artist and The Martelli Brothers. The 2012 General Tire Mint 400 variants are valued at $250 each and will not be available for sale.
