Jeff Koons’ BMW Art Car

3 Jun

Since 1975, BMW have occasionally invited artists to use its cars as canvases. Until recently, there were 17 BMW Art Cars in the collection from luminaries such as Andy Warhol through to Australia’s own Ken Done. Now, in 2010, there are 18. BMW approached Jeff Koons to paint a BMW M3 GT2 that will compete in the 24 Hours of Le Mans on June 12. Reportedly, Koons studied pictures of race cars and explosions to come up with the concept. The bright palette and streaks of colour make the car look fast even when its standing still.
