BMW M1 ART CAR BY ANDY WARHOL (1977) | Revolver Gallery



DESCRIPTION ▹

In 1977, pop art legend Andy Warhol was commissioned to design the fourth BMW Art Car, a BMW M1. Warhol painted directly on the full-scale car unlike artists before him who created their designs on maquettes, or 1:5 scale models, and had technicians reproduce their design. Warhol added a personal touch by running his fingers through the paint, which he is reported to have spent a total of 23 minutes painting the car.

When asked if he was pleased with the end result, Warhol replied, “I love the car; it’s better than the work of art itself.”

Warhol explained, “I tried to portray speed pictorially. If a car is moving really quickly, all the lines and colors are blurred.”
