BMW 3 Series Art Car by Andy Reiben

Art Car

Czech dealership commissions local artist to give this BMW a psychedelic glow-in-the-dark makeover.

It’s beenover 35 years since the BMW Art Car program started. In that time, some of theworld’s best pop artists have painted BMW cars in their own vision, includingthe likes of Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. While this may not be anofficial Art Car, the “Fluidum” handpainted by local Czech artist Andy Reiben wascommissioned by a BMW dealership and looks just as impressive. The four-door 3er sedan was initially wrapped inmatte vinyl before being spray-painted with iridescent and fluorescent paints.

Photo-luminescent paints were also applied to make parts of the artwork glow in the dark. Describing his design, Reiben said: “I love cars, speed and adrenaline. I wanted to abstractly express passion and dynamism and therefore each part of the body is different and tells a story. On the front hood there is the birth and taming of the power, right and left sides express the balance of power, day and night; the rear part symbolizes resistance and the roof sinuosity and barriers on most routes. Triple line across the whole car on one hand indicates series designation of the original vehicle and on the other the clenched claws as if you wanted to stop the beast that tries escape.”
