Thanks to you, Christmas now also means your Christmas and Gospel songs wrapped up in red curls, cashmere sweaters, green eyes and alternatingly sweet and fiery vocals

A radicalized, “custom culture/hot rod art” tribute to the music and persona of Art Greenhaw by artist John Detrich — John has creatively combined elements of Art’s music, Texana, Mosrite guitars, Buick Rivieras, and pop art to create a marvelous illustration. Art Greenhaw is a long-time supporter/ambassador of the unique American pop art style exhibited here and known as “custom culture” or “Kustom Kulture”. This art and culture has many “fathers” such as Ed “Big Daddy” Roth and Von Dutch, and it has many “sons” such as John Detrich. Art Greenhaw has collaborated with Ed Roth on projects since 1985, and Ed dubbed Art “the voice of Rat Fink”, Rat Fink being Mr. Roth’s most famous illustration. At the heart of “custom culture art” is an appreciation of the great 20th century icon, the automobile.
