Art & Development Inc.

Originally from New York city, Camilo moved to Detroit at the age of 10.
He developed a fascination with 60s sports cars and modern art.
After graduating from Detroit’s design school - College for Creative Studies in 1985, Camilo was hired by Ford Design Center in Dearborn Michigan. His assignments included working in the Dearborn Advanced Studies the Ghia studio in Torino, Italy and the design Studios in Cologne Germany. After 15 years at Ford Motor Company, he received the ultimate assignment. His studio began working on a state of the art redesign of the classic Ford GT. This project developed into the 2002 Ford GT concept car.
As chief designer of the Ford GT and SVT Studio, Camilo’s team worked the
2005 and 2006 production Ford GT.  The GT captured the interest of car
enthusiasts around the world.

During his career at Ford Design, Camilo continued to explore additional
avenues of art and design.  By integrating design principles with the
abstractions of fine art, he explored alternative design solutions in fashion  and furniture design.

Camilo’s art work is spread across his studios.  Bright colored paintings with images of sports cars and beautiful models cover the walls.
