On display at the British International Motor Show Chevrolet stand, are two uniquely created renderings of Chevrolet's Camaro Convertible and Beat Concepts. Instead of using the tradition paint brush, 25-year old artist, Ian Cook, from Solihull, West Midlands used remote control cars driven through acrylic paints, with further detail added by using old car tyres.

“I wanted to be an artist from a young age and decided that to be successful I needed something completely unique,” said Ian. “I’ve always been mad about anything with wheels and I figured that using cars to paint cars would capture peoples’ imaginations, so I experimented at home by driving some remote control models through paint.”

Cook has coined his style of art, Popbang Colour, with paintings of other famous figures from the world of motoring, including Lord Montagu of Beaulieu and F1 driver Lewis Hamilton.

On the last day of the British International Motor Show, Cook will create an image of British racing star Rob Huff’s Chevrolet Lacetti World Touring Car for all to see.
