It is difficult to define art, though there are those who will tell that true art is something that exists for no other reason than itself. Chew on that for a minute, and then return to the real world where art is all but undefinable. From starving dogs to poo-splattered on canvas, pretty much anything can be considered art, though we find it difficult to appreciate some of this supposed “high culture.”
But when it comes to cars, we can appreciate less traditional forms of artistry, like the rusty sheets of metal emblazoned with famous vehicles created by Bo Lundvang. Autoblog came across this unique from of art, and when we saw the ‘69 Charger standing out against the rust background, we knew we had found some real art worth of discussion.
Pantina and rust are the “in” things these days, as demonstrated by the extreme lengths people will go to to get a natural patina on otherwise expensive, fancy automobiles. Lundvang saw a need and filled it with his own unique brand of art, which takes a piece of blank sheet metal wrapped in white vinyl.
Lundvang then cuts out the negative around the imagine, leaving a stark contrast between car and rust. He then removes the negative, lets the rust take its course, and when there is enough rust to go around, Lundvang seals the piece in clearcoat. Obviously we love the Charger, but there are plenty of supercars and other classics. Interested in commissioning a piece? Contact Lundvang over at his website, he might just be able to hook you up.
