Ferrari F430 Gets the Art Car Treatment by John “Crash” Matos
Art Cars have become the pinnacle of automotive expression, with the likes of Jeff Koons and even Andy Warhol using the medium. But it’s not always extravagant, high-class artists that deserve all the praise — one NYC graffiti artist is working his magic on a Ferrari F430. John “Crash” Matos has made a name for himself on the streets of New York. Since the age of 13, the now-renowned artist was taking to subway trains and alleyways to promote his own sense of style. Now with the help of Joe “Mac” LaPadula of Martino Auto Concepts, and the Dorian Grey Gallery, Matos’ F430 masterpiece will be on display in front of thousands of curious onlookers.

Starting off as a donation from Joe Mac’s personal collection, the F430 concept caught the attention of the Dorian Grey Gallery. The same gallery known for showcasing some of the world’s finest artists, located in the heart of the East Village.
While it’s still a work in progress the team hopes that this work of art will be finished and on display in no time at all.
