Different groups of people recognize art forms that not everyone understands, let alone appreciates. Luke Achterberg honors the subculture of customized automotive styling and street art. The highly technical values that have been developed are entirely outside the walls of academia. Combining the knowledge of fine art and its values with the individuality of customization is essential to the creation of work by Achterberg.

“Incendiary” plays with balance, both physical and aesthetic, and creates a visual smoothness. The very “cool” racing lines that jump out of Incendiary highlight the tight corners and wings. This is true Americana; a subculture highly refined.
