After graduating from Detroit’s prestigious design school Center for Creative Studies in 1985, Camilo was hired by Ford Design Center in Dearborn Michigan. His assignments included working in the Dearborn Advanced Studios, Ford of Europe- Torino, Italy Studio , and the Design Studios in Cologne Germany. After 15 years at Ford Motor Company, Camillo took on what was for him the ultimate assignment... a state of the art re-design of the classic Ford GT race car. This project developed the 2002 Ford GT concept car.
As chief Designer of the Ford GT and the SVT Studio, Camilo’s team worked on the 2005 and 2006 production Ford GT. The GT became an instant success capturing the interest of car enthusiasts around the world.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
The art that Camilo Pardo
has created over the years is all over Detroit. A considerable amount of it is present on our freeways at any given moment of the day. Most recognized for his design work on the Ford GT, Camilo put verve in the steel curves and reminded us that a car's first internal combustion takes place in an artist's mind. The car's external beauty is born there as well. That mind has not ceased from creative labors, even if they're no longer entirely devoted to Motor City mojo.
Camilo's paintings and drawings speak to both his love for linear perfection and his fascination for the manner in which those lines deliver aesthetic satisfaction to the viewer. His works genuinely seem to move and they are energized by what is obviously a rich understanding and respect for popular culture and traditional disciplines. In less talented hands, such a seeming contradiction of forces would negate the best efforts. Camilo makes them reconcile, complement each other and dance together.
