Sabrina Chun. Blackprint. Black And White Legends

The Lamborghini Countach and Porsche 911 are just two legendary machines that make up San Francisco-based artists Sabrina Chun’s Blackprint series.


The eight machines in this list – the Lamborghini Countach, the Shelby Cobra, Volkswagen Minibus, 1967 Ford Mustang, Porsche 911, Ford Model T, the DeLorean DMC-12, and Ecto-1 from Ghostbusters – may not necessarily have much in common, but we’re willing to bet you’d be happy hanging any of them on your wall.


With the help of San Francisco-based Sabrina Chun, you can do just that. Her latest body of work, ‘Blackprints’, depicts each of these models in white and in profile on a black backdrop. Simplicity itself, though that doesn’t mean the attention to detail is lacking. Impressive enough, since each print is available in either Mini (6×9-in) or Jumbo (24×38-in) size.


Now normally at this point we reel off a price for the artwork in question that leaves our readers with either a spinning head or in need of a lie down. Not this time though. Thanks to each print being produced on recycled card, just under $140 down up front will get you the whole 6×9-in set. And, more than likely, a fairly disgruntled girlfriend or wife.


In this video* – the opening Ricky Bobby Talladega Nights line we’ve decided to look past, thank you very much Miss Chun – gives us a glimpse into the artist’s enthusiasm for the genre. That basically means a series of pictures of Sabrina standing next to or sitting in a succession of high performance monsters, almost all of which – interestingly – are Ferraris.

Expect maybe a 599XX or a 250 California Spyder to be making its ‘Blackprint’ debut any time soon.
