Ford Focus Art Car

These days creating artworks out of cars has become a common thing in publicizing a product.

Ford Focus is the latest to get the treatment. The car has been given a street art makeover by a couple of artist from Recoat Gallery in Glasgow, Scotland, and will be featured in the Ford Centenary Tour.

Working from a temporary public ‘studio’ outside the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall in Buchanan Street, the artists Lyken, FiST, Syrkus, Rue 5, Death Rattles and Al White, who are from the city’s Independent Recoat Gallery, spent six hours producing the artwork. The theme of the car is what sets is apart and makes it unique.

The Ford Centenary Tour is an exhibition charting the company’s unique history in the UK and its future plans.  It will visit 20 UK locations, including Ford plants and dealers, as it makes contact with Ford customers, employees and enthusiasts from Inverness in the Scottish Highlands to Plymouth on the south coast. The tour, which got underway in London last week, runs until September 18, finishing at the Goodwood Revival in Chichester, West Sussex.

Recoat Gallery manager, Amy Whiten, said: “The artists we have at Recoat have been doing great work in Scotland and we are delighted to get the chance to show what we can do.  We’ve worked on a few different vehicle projects but this is the first time the artists have collaborated on completely restyling the paint job of a car.”
