Matrix Automotive Finishes® has selected 13 unique vehicles for its 2019 calendar.

Builds ranging from mid-century trucks to cutting-edge custom motorcycles display what can only be described as inventive and dramatic paint jobs brought to life by some of the industry’s most well-known and renowned painters using Matrix products, from basecoat to the clear.

“We received an incredible amount of quality submissions for this year’s calendar,” says Rob Mowson, Vice President of Marketing, Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes. “Narrowing the entries down to 13 wasn’t easy, but we arrived at a collection that truly showcases the endless possibilities Matrix products represent.”

The 2019 Matrix Calendar highlights not only the innovative work of painters using Matrix paint and products, but a number of the brand’s Mavericks of Color—a distinction awarded annually to painters in the collision repair environment and custom world who demonstrate a continued commitment to pushing the envelope of creativity and passion.

To better display the depth of color and intricate detail of each build, the Matrix 2019 calendar features an 11 x 17 landscape format. The wider image format allows for a closer look at each painter’s stunning work and makes the 2019 Matrix Calendar a must-have for collectors and enthusiasts.
