[Airbrush Art Archive]
Photographic Collection of 4-Wheel Drive Truck Airbrush Art
Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania: N.p., c. 1991-1994. Photographs lightly curled, overall near fine.. Collection of 571 unique color snapshots, mostly 6 x 4 inches, apparently taken in the early 1990s at 4-Wheel "Jamboree" events in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania. Excellent documentation of automotive airbrush artwork, as applied to customized 4-wheel drive jeeps and trucks. Using themes both original as well as often heavily borrowing from comics, fantasy, science fiction and heavy metal music, the trucks photographed herein are fully achieved art objects from an American vernacular tradition. Consists of 352 photographs of various vehicles, and another 106 images highlighting close ups and details of the airbrush artwork. Additionally, 92 photographs feature 4-wheel trucks in off road mud competitions, and another 48 of an October, 1992 "Jeep Jamboree" held in an unknown location. Altogether, a compelling visual archive of a uniquely American subculture.
