Based in Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany, Uli Hack is a world renowned motorsport artist with a particular passion for Porsche.
Having made his name as the official F1 artist between 1998 and 2000, documenting every Grand Prix with a unique poster design, Uli then turned his talents to Porsche, crafting evocative imagery that reflects the marque’s values.
During his time as Art Director for Dutch fashion label State of Art, Uli created the iconic 'shield' artwork, seen here, to capture the spirit of the brand as a present for company founder Albert Westerman, who retains a significant Porsche collection.
The title 'WERK 1' is inspired by all Uli's visits to the old Porsche headquarters bearing this name.
And at Style for Miles we’re proud to host his portfolio of unique creations, starting with his legendary interpretation of the classic Shield, which also features in Porsche’s Christophorus magazine.Every single artwork is handcrafted and recieves finishing touches of original acrylics by Uli Hack and his distinctive style, making each piece truly individual.

The edition is strictly limited to 911 prints worldwide. 850 € (£990) each, size 80 cm x 80 cm.
