The Unique Artistry of Makoto Endo

We interrupt your regularly scheduled program to bring you our very own Workshop Hero Nation Station. No need to grab the remote or to check your local listings, we have got you covered with a hand chosen “video du jour.”

At Workshop Hero we marvel at the unique talents that we come across during our travels at road shows and swap meets. One such talent is the art of Makoto Endo. Endo, born in Japan, is a painter whose primary subject is motorcycles. But he isn’t just any painter, Endo uses a one-of-a-kind technique to create his master pieces—he flings Indian ink on canvas using chopsticks. No paint brushes or other traditional painting tools are in his paint box—Endo sticks to his chopsticks, bamboo chopsticks chosen for their strength and flexibility, to be exact.

Words can’t do justice to his artistry, but the video below takes a stab at it.

World’s Greatest Drag Race – Lamborghini vs Farm Truck

We interrupt your regularly scheduled program to bring you our very own Workshop Hero Nation Station. No need to grab the remote or to check your local listings, we have got you covered with a hand chosen “video du jour.” At Workshop Hero we say never underestimate the power of all things old and vintage. Case in point, check out our buddies Farmtruck & Azn of the DISCOVERY channel’s Street Outlaw. Their 1970 Chevy long-bed truck stood toe-to-toe or in this case wheel-to-wheel on the race track against a Lamborghini Huracán. We don’t want to give away the ending but let’s just say once you’ve watched, you will have a newfound respect for your elders – elder automobiles that is.
