Graffiti guru takes stab in re-designing a MINI
If there’s one car brand that’s had itsfair share of uniquely-designed models, the first one that always comes to mind is MINI. For the most part, the company hasn’t been shy in releasing special-edition models that are, for lack of a better term, eye-catching.
This particular MINI fits that bill to a tee. Created by KRINK founder and graffiti-design savant, Craig “KR” Costello, who, by the way, travelled all the way to the MINI headquarters in Hamburg, Germany, what used to be a simple black MINI was transformed into a fine work of art.
At first glance, you might notice that Costello’s work is nothing more than just dumping a bucket of white paint and letting it drip out on all sides. But upon closer inspection, you’ll notice that the design is more intricate and deliberate than what you probably first thought.
Using the Krink silver paint color that has long been Costello’s trademark, the New York-based artist left no stone unturned in his elaborate design. Suffice to say, it’s not as outlandish as some MINI designs we’ve seen over the years, but nevertheless, it still looks pretty impressive, especially the whole white/black color-balancing effect.
