House of Kolor

The 2021 House of Kolor calendar is now out, featuring some of the wildest and brightest bikes and automobiles in the custom business.

Darren Wenzel of West Coast Choppers in Austin, Texas, and Steve Santos of Santos Customs in Vacaville, California, are among the artists featured in the yearly calendar program.

The 1998 Harley-Davidson Superglide painted by Paige Macy of Stripe Cult Painting in Salt Lake City, Utah, is featured on the cover of this year’s issue of House of Kolor.

Rob Mowson, vice president of marketing at House of Kolor, remarked, “The calendar acknowledges actual talent, artists who apply our unique brand in their work.” “Each project shown in the catalog exemplifies House of Kolor’s unrestricted color palette and impact, which goes beyond standard pearls and flakes to capture genuinely spectacular and revolutionary multidimensional finishes.”

Doug Starbuck’s 1956 Oldsmobile 98 from Star Side Designs in Riverside, California, and Juan “Munch” Gonzalez’s 1954 Chevrolet 3600 Long Bed from Valhalla Auto Restoration in Port Murray, New Jersey, are both featured in the 2021 House of Kolor calendar.

Mike Lavallee, a world-renowned airbrush artist, and pinstriping pioneer, is honored in December. He invented the True Flames airbrushing process, which imitated genuine flames with the following HOK Kolors: black, white apple red, chrome yellow, Kandy tangerine, molly orange, pagan gold, and passions purple pearl. Using the House of Kolor paint method in a manner never intended, he devised his own procedures and templates.

Mowson stated, “We are very grieved by Mike’s loss and are certain that his legacy will live on in the hearts of so many people he touched with his ability and friendship.”
