Ian Cook, the 25-year-old artist from Solihull, West Midlands, has found his artistic niche using remote controlled cars and old tires. Chevy took notice of his unorthodox style of art work and commissioned two paintings from Cook for the London auto show. One was of the Camaro convertible, done live during the opening day of the auto show, and the other of the Beat concept car.

The artwork were created using remote control cars driven through acrylic paints, with further detail added by using old car tires. “I wanted to be an artist from a young age and decided that to be successful I needed something completely unique,” said Ian. “I’ve always been mad about anything with wheels and I figured that using cars to paint cars would capture peoples’ imaginations, so I experimented at home by driving some remote control models through paint.”
