Art Car Boot Fair

(2010) Art Car Boot Fair

Record type: Art Design Item


Four artists engage with four shiny new cars from the very latest Vauxhall range to enact their artistic whims in the form of on-car and in-car customisations.

Ian Dawson has created a series of vibrant and intricately complex Spirograph images to deck out his “Spiro Car.”

Derived from his series of large wall panels which he adorned by hand using the popular children’s toy, Ian has used a Spirograph generating computer programme to generate the stunning totemic series of patterns across the contours of the car’s bodywork.
