Not even Blizzard Jonas of 2016 could stop the heat that the ART-of-Motion exhibit from Automotive Rhythms and Throttle Life were destined to bring to the 2016 Washington Auto Show. Washingtonians marveled at the creatively decorated cars, fashion, murals, bikes and Polaris Slingshots designed by renowned illustrators at the ART-of-Motion exhibit, an avante-garde art exposition produced by urban lifestyle pioneers, Automotive Rhythms and Throttle. Each day consisted of unique activity sets, whether it was a live art installation from one of the acclaimed artists chosen to paint a vehicle or a stunning fashion show from Kas Collection. Keep in mind ART-of-Motion was noted as the most exiting display in the entire show.
Next up was the GM Design team flying in from Detroit to strategically splatter a 2014 Corvette Stingray. The idea for a Corvette art car was inspired by famous artists such as Andy Warhol, Peter Max and Frank Stella, all of whom previously transformed vehicles into rolling works of art. The ART-of-Motion Corvette was created by Deadra Bell-Smith (Creative Sculpting Model Manger, Buick Design and a graduate of Detroit’s College for Creative Studies), Brett Golliff (Lead Designer, Chevrolet Performance Global Color & Trim and graduate of Detroit’s College for Creative Studies) and Tyler Mars (Senior Digital Sculptor, Cadillac Exterior Design and a graduate of Detroit’s College for Creative Studies). The trio used acrylic, water-soluble paints to generate a contemporary art design on the white vinyl-wrapped Corvette. Using brushes and paint bottles, the designers implemented a mix of patterns to decorate the sports car over the course of four hours, accompanied by music played by DJ Blinks spinning with a special Bose L1 and LS audio system that energized the artists and kept the crowd grooving.
