Ever wanted to take a Rolls-Royce or a Corvette for a spin? How about getting behind the wheel of a work of art?
Two of Park West Gallery’s internationally-renowned artists, Duaiv and Romero Britto, have once again used automobiles as their canvases. The results are colorful, one-of-a-kind vehicles that are sure to turn heads when on the road.
Duaiv’s Colorful Corvette
Duaiv has created multiple custom rides during his career, including a Lamborghini Adventador Roadster, Ferrari 458 Spyder and Ferrari FF. His most recent art on wheels takes the form of a special edition Corvette Z06 C7R. The brightly-colored sports car features imagery based on Pablo Picasso.
“This was my way of bringing Picasso onto the street, and to share art with the public and make a statement,” Duaiv says. “I wanted to do a special tribute to one of the biggest contemporary masters from our time.”
Not only is this Duaiv’s first tribute to an artist through a customized wrap, it also marks his first use of glitter and gold in customizing a vehicle. Duaiv, however, is no stranger to creating homages to artists. He has paid tribute to Picasso as well as Vincent van Gogh in his Impressionistic paintings.
Britto Paints a Rolls-Royce
Britto’s fusion of Pop Art and Cubism is instantly recognizable, whether it is the limited-edition works with Park West Gallery, for brands such as Coca-Cola and Absolut Vodka, or as official art for the 2016 Summer Olympics.
On November 29, the Neo-Pop artist unveiled one of his latest projects: a customized Rolls-Royce Dawn. The reveal at Braman Rolls Royce helped kick off Art Basel Miami. The one-of-a-kind convertible is the central feature of the Braman Rolls-Royce showroom and is available for purchase.
“With such an elegant palette as the Rolls-Royce Dawn, my art is but frosting on an already delectable masterpiece,” said Britto in a written statement.
Britto has created custom wraps for other automobiles, including a Volvo V50, an Audi Q7, two Audi RS-4s, a Porsche 911 Cabriolet and Bentley Continental GT.
Artwork by Duaiv and Britto are available through Park West Gallery. Contact our gallery consultants for more information on how to collect art from these international artists.
