Special Award for "Best of Show": Uriankhai Art

The history of an automobile, its character and its essence form an essence for the collector that is expressed not only in its value, but in much more. Some speak of the soul of the automobile. And just as special collector's items possess a soul, they also possess their very own lifeblood that drives them and makes them come alive: the oil that flows through their engines, through their veins.

 The Mongolian artist Uriankhai dedicates his art to precisely this theme: he transforms the engine oil of unique automobiles - without adding any additional paint - into a very special, deep black matt colour and thus brings the object itself onto a canvas. In doing so, he uses a very special ritual that is based on "Shonjid", a shamanic tradition.
Uriankhai only paints a few pictures a year, first taking a personal look at each object to feel its very individual energy. We are pleased to have been able to enter into an exciting cooperation with the artist this year: Uriankhai will - as a follow-up to the competition - paint a unique artwork from the original motor oil for the winner of the "Best of Show" category. A special memento for a special automobile.

THE ZCCA and The Motor Chain will do justice to the increasing importance of seamless and complete documentation of classic cars and will award the special "Best Documented Car" prize for the first time from 2021.

TMC is the initiator of this award. We are proud to have partnered with startup The Motor Chain for this.... You explain your work as follows:

"The Motor Chain" digitizes and manages the vehicle documentation. All documentation about the vehicle is in one place. Owners of the vehicles can document themselves online from their smartphone or computer. Everything from the owner's history, services, investment invoices to original brochures and sales contracts, certifications for events and photos can be stored. Trusted third parties (e.g. mentors, associations, restorers) verify the authenticity of the documents. Store everything permanently and transfer it to a new owner if necessary and share these documents with other enthusiasts. For owners of vehicles, this service is free of charge and free of obligations".
