The Fiat 500 has provided inspiration for artists participating in Exhibitalia. The four-day exhibition takes place at the Art Basel in Miami. It features a selection of Italian art, design, fashion and culture; so the Fiat was the perfect choice.
The small Italian car debuted at last month’s LA Auto Show and is due to go on sale in US dealerships in early 2011. It will be priced from $15,000. In Miami, the Fiat became the canvas as renowned Italian artists, joined by two student art teams from the University of Miami, used the new 500 as both inspiration and the canvas itself.
Christian Balzano took his design inspiration to the entire body of the car, while other artists chose to paint individual panels.
The exhibition takes place in Wynwood Art District in Miami and is held from December 1-6.
