Axalta Announces Pinstriping Event
Jan. 19, 2016—Axalta Coating Systems has announced that its fifth annual Winter Panel Jam will feature pinstriping artwork produced onsite and live by renowned artists. The event will take place on Feb. 1-2 at a new Universal Technical Institute (UTI) campus in Long Beach, Calif.
The pinstriping artists will use Axalta’s Cromax basecoats and clearcoats and Hot Hues candy dyes and pinstripe colors to create custom art on hoods, miniature car bodies, pedal cars, and more. The artists will be competing to have their artwork named “Best-in-Show.” The winning design will be awarded the Radiant Red Commemorative SATAjet 5000 B spray gun.
“The event brings together a group of talented artists to collaborate, learn from and teach each other, and ultimately create some fantastic artwork that Axalta will display at custom car shows across the country throughout the year," said Harry Christman, Axalta Cromax brand manager. “We’re happy to give these students an opportunity to connect with the industry’s best. The first few years we did this at our Pomona, California Learning and Development Center. Last year, we decided to engage the trade school community by holding the event at Los Angeles Trade-Technical College in downtown Los Angeles. This year, we chose to work with UTI to celebrate our growing relationship, help promote the school's capabilities and to expose their students to this very unique aspect of automotive paint."
