Mel Ramos (born July 24, 1935) is an American figurative painter, specializing most often in paintings of female nudes, whose work incorporates elements of realist and abstract art.
Born in Sacramento, California, to a first generation Portuguese-Azorean immigrant family, he gained his popularity as part of the Pop Art movement of the 1960s. Ramos is "best known for his paintings of superheroes and voluptuous female nudes emerging from cornstalks or Chiquita bananas, popping up from candy wrappers or lounging in martini glasses".
Dubai-based sports car builder Jannarelly has ventured into the electric car market with this Design-X1.
It was built for a customer in California and is a derivative of the original Design-1.
Technical details of the Design-X1 have yet to be released but the company states that it can build up to 11 examples for a price point of $200,000 - $300,000 each.
