Six street artists brought Glasgow City Centre to a standstill by transforming a brand new Ford Focus into a vividly-colored work of art.
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 that will be featured for the next month, as part of the Ford Centenary Tour.
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."
The Ford Centenary Tour is an exhibition charting the company's unique history in the UK and its future plans.
