Art cars have become an integral part of the auto industry, and it doesn’t surprise us to find out that more and more models have been treated to some sort of artistic interpretation by artists from all over the world.
Recently, we found out that the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany was holding a special exhibition on a new collection of decorative hoods for the Porsche 911 GT2 . The exhibit is called Colección Goméz after Argentinian curator Jorge Goméz, a man whose love for art is only matched by his love for Porsches.
To pay homage to his two passions, Porsche decided to enlist the services of 19 Latin American artists to create 24 dynamic hoods for the 911 GT2, each coming with their own unique designs. Every form of artwork - be it the simple variety or the meticulously designed - offered a different perspective on the artistic style of each of the artists that were involved in the project. Look at those hoods a little closer and you’ll notice that there’s a couple of nude artworks in there, as well as...Astroboy.
Not sure what he has to do with a Porsche , but nonetheless, you can’t deny the peculiarity of seeing a 911 GT2 with Astroboy on its hood.
In any case, the Colección Goméz will run until January 8, 2012 and is available for public consumption from Tuesdays through Sundays between 9 am to 6 pm. If you happen to be in Stuttgart from here until the new year, it’s definitely something that’s worth your time.
