Bio: Armed with only an airbrush, Cory Saint Clair is out to rewrite the book on automotive artwork. Cory Saint Clair flunked ninth grade art. Why? For not following the rules. Fifteen years later, not much has changed. The 34-year-old still isnt playing by the book, but ironically, today thats part of what makes him one of the premier airbrush artists in the industry. I would rather punch myself in the face than paint more flames and skulls, jokes Saint Clair, whos been trying to move away from what he feels is clichéd, instead implementing a fine-art approach to his work. Im tired of doing the evil stuff; I want to show that theres a whole other world to this, and that there are real artists in the airbrush game, he says. Aside from painting angels on a Lamborghini Gallardo, he is currently finishing a depiction of the Sistine Chapel on the headliner of his Dodge Magnum. For Saint Clair, it all started with a copy of Airbrush Action and an Iwata airbrush he received for his 12th birthday. Everything I learned was all self-taught, because I couldnt afford to go to an art school, he explains. I learned from magazines. Sometimes we didnt have enough money to get them, but my mom would always find a way to buy Airbrush Action, because she knew that was my only avenue. From the very beginning, Saint Clair was out to earn, and he quickly found a way to flip his passion for profit. Today Saint Clair works on some of the top builds in the nation, including much of Asantis fleet. A job by the man himself could cost you upwards of $150,000, but as Cory says, If you have money to spend on a Lamborghini, you can afford to paint it to set it apart. Its just paint. Not a bad finish for the kid who failed art.
