Art Car project Transit Van

           Five year Art Car project 

 

  An Art Car is a vehicle that has had its appearance modified as an act of personal artistic expression. Many influences are credited to the rise of Art Car from the hippie VW to the psychedelic school buses from the 60’s and 70’s.                                                                              The Art Car following really took off in the 90’s with added inspiration from Sci Fi books and films. Today there’s Art car parades and even an Art Car museum, not only is the Transit van my workhorse it’s also a hobby and artistic outlet. Every year for the past 5 years the Transit van has undergone a complete transformation, the first year was a Flower Power theme. The second year it was turned into a shed on wheels including a wood  burning stove, not only used for parades but also camping. The third year it became the “Astrological Transit” covered in the 12 zodiac signs, the fourth year a psychedelic theme, it was after all 50 years of psychedelic and 50 years of the Transit van. And now this year a caveman and cave paintings theme inspired by the Lascaux cave paintings in France.
