Urban Car Art by Mini

Last year, the car-manufacturer Mini celebrated its 50th birthday with a great art event. In addition to the controversial discussed, but inspiring KRink vs. Mini action, ten other well-known artists, including urban artists like Seak One, Tika and Smash137, created their custom-styled Minis.

Ten very different car-styles were created by the very different artist, whose single similarity was, that they never painted a car before. For that reason, they used a lot of different techniques to customize their Minis: cleaning, sluicing, omitting, spraying, scratching and painting were only a few.

In my opinion, the cars by Smash137, Pichler & Burn and Fabian Bertschinger are the best, but take a look yourself!

For some weeks, the corresponding “Wash Me” book is published. It shows nice photos of the making-of, gives impressions of the finished car artworks and presents the artists…
