Rinspeed has introduced a series of images for car enthusiasts. Available for order in limited editions, the graphic designs can be purchased for as little as €100.
Rinspeed has introduced a new series of artwork meant for both "car and graphic art enthusiasts." The series of prints are split up into five categories based on their concepts: iChange, sQuba, zaZen, Bedouin, and eXasis. There is also a sixth, "Rinspeed" section with a few other designs based on their E2 Fiat 500.
In total, the RinspeedArt website makes over 80 prints available, most limited to only 20 copies. The giclée prints will be produced on either art paper, canvas, or Plexiglas. Because the images were digitally designed, they can be printed in a variety of sizes to fit the customer's needs.
Rinspeed's slogan for this selection is, "Design your life with your passion." The images pay homage to the Italian Futurism art movement of the early 1900s. Artists Ottavio Di Chio, Chiara Gasparetto, Luca Imerito, Andrea Mariani, Filippo Ponzetti, Serena Zanello and Veronica Servente paid particular attention to two points in the movement's manifesto:
- We declare that the splendor of the world has been enriched by a new beauty: the beauty of speed. A racing automobile with its bonnet adorned with great tubes like serpents with explosive breath.
- We want to sing the man at the wheel, the ideal axis of which crosses the earth, itself hurled along its orbit.
The prints are all made in Switzerland, but don't think that makes them expensive. A quick search through the website shows that the many cost between €100 and €200. Printing on canvas or Plexiglass can add quite a bit more to the price, especially when the size is increased. You can check out all the prints at www.rinspeedart.com.
