BMW Art Cars come to London
But how did it begin? The year was 1975, and French racing driver Hervé Poulain invited an artist friend Alexander Calder simply to paint a BMW.
So what started as a bit of paint dribbled over a BMW has turned into a massive collection of art cars, with an interesting selection of artists behind it – even Andy Worhol has done one.
Ruth Mackenzie, Director of London 2012 Festival, one of the partners responsible for the exhibition, said: “London has never seen these astonishing cars, and this free event will be a highlight of our festival.”
