Nephew of the famous sculptor “Caesar”, René Baldaccini, is also an eclectic artist, inspired by the likes of Dave Arman, Lino Ventura, Yves Montand, David Bowie, Mick Jagger, Coluche, Johnny Hallyday, and many others.
Now Mr Baldaccini has brought together his two major enthusiasms, sculpture and motorsport, to create a special piece for the Automobile Club of Monaco (ACM).
The work was the inspiration of an army general, David Galtier, who discussed the idea with Michel Boeri, President of the ACM. Mr Baldaccini created the sculpture from the metal plates used in the Monte-Carlo Rallies, welded together and placed on a steel base.
“It is truly an honour for me to have made this unique piece for the Automobile Club of Monaco,” the Marseille artist said, whose art now occupies pride of place in the club’s garden, in full view of the restaurant.
