3W: BMW Art Cars

What: Priceless cars and artwork, sigh.
Why: Who wouldn't want a car like these? Okay.. Okay.. So, we're a little bit late in the game with this 3W find but wow, we wish we had found these sooner! You may of seen the BMW art cars recently on show in our home capital, London as part of the 2012 festival. If you didn't then these priceless pieces of artwork (and cars) were on show for 2 weeks in an inner city car park in the heart of Shoreditch. Artists such as the legendary Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Jeff Koons, Frank Stella, Jenny Holzer and David Hockney to name but a few have all painted histories best automobiles in order to "marry artistic excellence with an already perfect object." If you ever get the chance to see these perfect pieces of art then do. It would of made our day to see a 23 minute painted car by Warhol - gutted much?

Did you go see the exhibition? What are your thoughts on cars being transformed into artworks? We'd love to see any pictures you took and hear your responses!
