Between artistic ability and geographical knowledge, it’s safe to say there’s a reason why NASCAR drivers don’t moonlight as cartographers. Kudos to Landon Cassill for pointing out George Strait’s exes on the map, but somebody needs to tell Carl Edwards that we’re not Missouri.
Suburban dirtballs of the 1980s are a lost culture, worthy of academic study, that disappeared abruptly, leaving mysterious artifacts for future generations to work over. Think of them as, say, the ancient Mayans, only with mullets.
The U.S. Postal Service (remember those guys?) has a big new crop of pretty stamps for 2016, including this set of four classic pickup trucks. Beautifully rendered as clean and colorful drawings, forget mailing the gas bill—these are nice enough to hang on the wall!
These were cars. Now they are art. Get it? Behold the work of abstract expressionist John Chamberlain, as seen in New York’s Dia Museum. [Image: Andrew P. Collins]
One of our favorite artists, Scott Park, illustrated the spaceships and vehicles in the original Star Wars trilogy to scale and it’s just so good. You get to see how a Stomtrooper compares in size to a Tauntaun to an X-34 Landspeeder to a TIE Fighter to the Millennium Falcon to the Death Star and everything else in…
Art can be judged on an almost infinite number of criteria from technical skill, monetary value, importance in an artist’s body of work, etc. The best criteria, we feel, is judging art based on how it makes you feel. When viewed in that context, the art created by Ornamental Conifer (aka Nicolai Sclater) is awesome.…
Google recently invited artists to design artwork themed around their community and neighbors to be featured on the company’s prototype self-driving cars. Kind of like the daily Google Doodle.
Photographer Freddy Fabris specializes in images of cars and people. When he stepped into one particular auto shop and inspiration hit him to take a new spin on an old theme, and it’s pretty awesome.
What if you could look up any automotive designer and actually see, not just read about, the vehicles for which they were responsible?
The retrofuturism movement among American car companies in the early 2000s spawned some truly awful looking cars, chief among them was of course the Chrysler PT Cruiser. The PT Cruiser, and by extension the Chevy HHR, became the wayback machines of choice for boomers desperately looking for any way to relive their…
FC Anji has had a pretty good season. The Russian soccer team, located in the city of Makhachkala, was promoted from the Russian National Football League to the Russian Premier League, and they’re celebrating with this giant Lamborghini statue:
Then, there’s the fact that the illustration was done completely from memory.
Jonathan Brand always wanted a motorcycle, but life got in the way. So the New York artist did the next, next, next best thing and created his own with CAD, a 3D printer, and 40 pounds of plastic.
Every present isn't a winner (sorry Aunt Edna) and your house could use some eye candy. So let's get a list together of the best automotive art while we're waiting to get a gift receipt for that phlegm-green knit vest that's two sizes too big.
105 year-old Swiss artist Hans Erni is world-renowned for his painting, graphic art, and sculpting, and also happens to be a former pilot. He created this beautiful paint work on a Pilatus PC-12 NG, to help the company celebrate it's 75th anniversary of incorporation - December 16, 1939.
I'm not entirely sure what this guy is out to prove, but off all the cars he could've chosen to swap oil for salad dressing, the Pontiac Sunfire seems like a solid candidate. But what is he really trying to say?
It's too easy to just take supercars and put them in the dystopian world that is to come. It's also too easy to put them into the cyberpunk world that is to come. Or really, any of those futures. What's better is all of those futures, blended together to make a beautiful whole. That's what British artist Khyzyl Saleem…
