When Art Imitates Car Life

Nicholas Hunziker, whose art you’ve surely seen in Panorama and maybe on my feet, is stepping into a tradition but also flipping it on it’s head a bit. Instead of painting an “art car”, he’s instead going to buy and modify a car paying only with his art.

There have been a few “art cars” over the years. Another German marque is famous for them. There is even a museum in Houston dedicated to the topic (and other forms of contemporary art). Porsche has seen a few. Some attempts might have been better left to concept, although beauty is certainly in the eye of the beholder, right?

We certainly wish him luck in achieving his vision. It’s certainly ambitous and should require a lot of painting and a lot of bartering!
