Volvo is the latest company to get in on the art car band wagon along with BMW, Tesla and many others.
Last February at a rail station in Zurich ten groups of Swiss street artists painted and repainted Volvo S60 and canvas. It took five days to record the event with a camera mounted across from the exhibit that took a photo of the artists’ accomplishments every five seconds. The video by the way is fantastic. Over a period of five days approximately 35,000 commuters got a chance to see these graffiti street artist work their craft on a volvo art car.
One of the artist took advantage of the time-lapse photography and made their project into a very humporous stop-motion animation
“Our intentions with this art project was to express and emphasize in a creative and innovative way the design of the Volvo S60,” said Volvo Cars Switzerland president Anouk Poelmann.
The cars turned out great but its too bad they had to paint over each peace, it would have been great to see each of these art cars out on the road turning heads.
