art cars & motorbikes.
It´s always an exciting process to create art on alternative material issued from our daily life, especially when it’s related to automotive and transport. In fact, cars have the potential to provide mobility as a new dimension to the creative experience.

MY FUNNY VALENTINE, MINI Cooper Roadster – Art Car
a tribute to richard rodgers and frank sinatra
MARBELLA/ Spain 2018
“I love driving with the roof off and listening to jazz songs.
The song MY FUNNY VALENTINE, composed by Richard Rodgers and sung by Frank Sinatra, inspired me to the design of this MINI Cooper Roadster. Take a closer look and discover the lyrics of this song: …. is your mouth a little week…, …don´t change your hair for me…., etc. Here you can see the process from the beginning on: design, testing with a simple print on the door of the car, plotting out of vinyl wrapping foil and finally the transfer of my design to the body of the car. Thanks to my team a simple silver white MINI turned into a stunning Art Car.”

“This VESPA LX 125 i.e. is the first motorbike which turned into an Art Motorbike with the help of a Marbellean car wrapping studio.
It was presented in the VIP Lounge of the Marbella Design Fair 2018, got lots of attention also by the press. The American Movie “Roman Holiday” of 1953 inspired me to this design. In the movie Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck drove on of those cult motorbikes through Rome and I imagined me them making an excursion to the beach of Tarifa/ Spain.
