About Gas Art

If you’re a collector with petrol in your veins, or a decorator looking for gas-station chic, Gas Art is the hot spot for gasoline automobilia.

Great design doesn’t come in a can. But, as Andy Warhol recognised in his iconic 32 Campbell’s Soup Cans, popular culture can become great art. Telis Sahinidis from Gas Art celebrates the design and iconography of 130 years of oil and gas retailing with wall-to-wall petroliana.

Even automotive novices will find this shop inspiring. Gas Art collates brand history. You’ll find oil tins, oil bottles, advertising signage, timber crates, petrol collectables and vintage automobilia from around the world. Stock is sourced everywhere from local garage sales to international auction houses. Telis loves picking so if he doesn’t have what you need he’ll probably know where to send you.

Telis has been collecting for over 10 years and presents his wares with care. This is more than a toy shop for petrol heads. It’s a tribute to enduring design and multi-generational advertising. Drop in and see what you recognise.
