The idea of adding additional value to iconic two-wheelers by transforming them artistically to individual art works came to me after successful transformations of normal cars into stunning Art Cars.
That´s why a well-preserved Vespa turned into the Art Vespa "Go 4 it!" just in time for the Marbella Design Fair, where it found a lot of admirers. Press and TV also reported about it.
It was a Vespa LX 125, built in 05/2011, with little kilometres and 100 km/h max speed.
The theme I had given me for this first Art Vespa was our so longed for summer:
Vespa plus summer is for me a trip for two to the beach, the wind around the nose, the Beach Boys song “Surfin´USA” in the ear, on the luggage rack all the necessities for an excursion to the sea: bath towel, bikini, swimming trunks, sun creme, a drink, flip flops ...
The ideas just spilled out of me and quickly found implementation in form of small drawings which a sign workshop in Spain transferred for me onto a vinyl wrap film for cars.
In five days, the originally red Vespa muted into this beauty thanks to the skills of a car wrapping studio in Marbella.
The Vespa has been recently sold to a car collector.
