Daniel gets to the art of the sport

Herald Sun - - CONFIDENTIAL -

DANIEL RICCIARDO’s ap­pre­ci­a­tion of street art could pay div­i­dends for char­ity.

The F1 ace is the sub­ject of a piece by Perth artist PAUL DEEJ (right), com­mis­sioned by carsales.com.au for whom Ricciardo is the global am­bas­sador. “I do like some street art,’’ he said. “I guess I ap­pre­ci­ate the work that goes into it. To some peo­ple, it looks some­times sim­ple but it’s ob­vi­ously not al­ways like that.

“It’s a bit like rac­ing, you know peo­ple say, well I drive a car ev­ery day so what makes you so spe­cial ... there’s ob­vi­ously a lot more to it.”

The art­work, signed by Ricciardo, will be auc­tioned on March 26 in Mel­bourne to raise funds for the White Rib­bon Foun­da­tion.
