The Art Himsl Photo Collection
Paint trends come and go but Art Himsl is forever. Art has been called the hot rod Rembrandt of our generation. In 1964 he decided to quit his daytime job. He was fed up. Tired of selling his life for 2 dollars and 78 cents an hour. He took a leave of absence and decided to follow his passion, opening up Himsl Custom Paint Studio in a little one stall shop in Concord, California. It worked out pretty good. Art never went back to work, and he has spent most of his life laying down some of the worlds most beautiful custom paint jobs. We spent a couple of days with Art in Concord during our California Roadtrip in March of 2019 to look through his many boxes of photos and record his story.
