BMW Art Car: Beautiful Designs By Various Renowned Artists

BMW Art Car: Beautiful Designs By Various Renowned Artists

I am sure that everybody out there is familiar with the BMW motor company. In 1975 the “BMW Art Car” Project was launched by Hervé Poulain. The purpose of this project was to invite renowned artists from throughout the world to use the BMW car as their personal canvas. In June 2010 the latest of this series of cars was unveiled just before it races in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. So far there are 17 cars that have been specially designed in this series, the latest artist being Jeff Koons. Hope you enjoy!

    I specially like the “1990 BMW 730i Art Car by Cesar Manrique ” very much due to it’s fine finishing and the great color combination. One may take a basic idea about how to do a car painting in various form.
