LET’S HEAR IT FOR BMW’S ART CARS
Esther Mahlangu's traditionally painted car is only one of 17 of BMW's specially commissioned "art cars."
This from Flavourwire: "Andy Warhol showed up with a full entourage but painted the car himself with 13 pounds of paint in 28 minutes flat and then asked for another one."
"Lichenstein imagined a blurring, bright landscape reflecting in a shiny, speeding car and interpreted the imagery in his signature style — dotty."
If I were Jenny Holzer, I would have put "protect me from what I want" on my BMW. But I'm not. And she didn't.
Matazo Kayama in foil and snowflakes.
"Rauschenberg lovingly referred to the car as a “virgin” and “beautified her” with layers of foil collage reflecting nature, the technical world and, naturally, classical nudity."
Frank Stella hadn't even a driver's licence when he designed this beaut.
Jeff Koons. What? No couplating porn stars? No inflated silver bunnies? That's a shame.
