Omologato Watches and The Gallery at Ice have collaborated this summer to present a motorsport-inspired exhibition of work by renowned artist Simon Ward and photographer Rob Overy.
Original oil paintings by Simon Ward and signed framed photographs by Rob Overy will be displayed in the UK’s first exhibition of these artists’ works.
Simon Ward is a British artist who cut his teeth through the 1980s and 90s following the motorsport circuit around the world and painting what he saw. Now based in the U.S., this exhibition of Simon’s work will be a rare opportunity to see his art in the UK, with most of his works to date residing in private collections and in a permanent exhibition in Sebring, Florida – a circuit close to the artist’s heart.
Rob Overy is a regular at car and race events throughout Europe, and his unique style of capturing the occasion of motorsport and its people has been recognised internationally by a number of media such as the ever popular Petrolicious.com and events such as the Goodwood Revival and Festival of Speed. This is the first time Rob’s work will be exhibited physically, having existed exclusively online, until now.
Some highlights of the paintings and images being displayed include the Simon Ward painting ‘The Chase’ (featuring the iconic dual between Nigel Mansell and Ayrton Senna at Monaco from 19xx) and “xxx’ (featuring the Gulf liveried Porsche 917 racing at Le Mans in 19xx). Rob Overy has selected an intimate portrait of Sir Jackie Stewart from 19xx and the iconic Ferrari steering wheel from xxx xxxxx in 19xx among his favourite photographs being displayed as part of the Omologato Collection.

Shami Kalra of Omologato said: “True motorsport enthusiasts have very few places to visit for a regular fix of rare and original art and memorabilia. This is why in coincidence with the renowned Concours of Elegance Motor Show in Windsor Castle taking place from the 2nd - 4th September, we have collaborated with The Gallery at Ice with this pop-up exhibition entitled ’The Omologato Collection’. It also allows us to display some new pieces from Omologato in a suitably motorsport inspired environment, and it is where our latest timepiece, the British Racing Green will be shown in public for the first time in the summer.”
The Gallery at Ice is located on Windsor High Street, just a two minute walk from the Castle and is based in a stunning Georgian building. ‘The Omologato Collection’ is a free exhibition and is now open.
