Design Concepts for BMW Art Cars #18 and #19
on 21 June 2016
Since 1975, BMW has partnered with artists to transform their models into something more than a piece of art. The latest crop, #18 by artist Cao Fei and #19 by John Baldessari continue the tradition. The former will debut, in person, summer 2017 and hit the track shortly thereafter in Asia. Baldessari's vehicle is set to premiere this year at Art Basel, Miami Beach and take the Daytona course in January 2017. Both artists worked with a BMW M6 GT3, but their design approaches and ultimate results reflect the diversity of their vision, and just how dynamic the car can be.
