BMW has quite the history of melding art with speed via their Art Cars projects. Since 1975, world renowned artists have taken their brushes to the sheet metal of Bavaria’s finest, all in the name of visual expression. To date there are a total of seventeen cars; each a unique look at an artist and an era.
One of the more iconic cars from the collection is the 850CSi painted by David Hockney. It was created nearly two decades ago in 1995, and now it’s finally returning home to Los Angeles.
As part of the Paris Photo second edition at the Paramount Pictures Studio in Los Angeles, BMW will be displaying David Hockney’s 8 Series . Along with bringing the classic 8 Series home to LA, BMW is bringing the spiritual successor to the classic coupe; the all-new i8.
From the past and into the future, BMW is representing the history, technology and art of the automotive world.
