Cars Meet Art Turns Auto Show into Stunning Art Gallery
Truth be told, the Miami International Auto Show is your typical consumer experience with dealers hawking cars, Camp Jeep, and Topless in Miami which sounds more risque than it actually is. But this year, Cars Meet Art was a special exhibit that transcended your typical auto show experience. What it is is a collection of 10 cars — some works of art in their own right — transformed into true masterpieces. For example, French American artist Gene Duaiv, a somewhat flamboyant type with pink hair, turned the Lamborghini Aventador Roadster into twice the head turner than it was in original form.

Cars Meet Art is dedicated to highlighting the urban art explosion in Miami’s Wynwood District, and it showcases the works of several U.S.-based, world-renowned street artists. Duaviv, for example, has painted works for the Cannes Film Festival as well as a stunning Ferrarri FF you might have seen previously.

But where this exhibit really shines is in making the mundane more beautiful. Artist 2alas has taken a Ford Fusion and made it jump out at you with some stunning lines. Jay West has taken a BMW 4 series and made it positively intimidating — especially because the snarling wolf has a teardrop tattoo.
The ape-like man painted on the front of the Fiat 500 is also eye catching as you discern the various elements of his hair. The anthropomorphic art of the Infiniti Q50 by BK the Artist makes you pause as you stare into its questioning eyes.

Heck, even the slightly goofy Mazda6 artwork by Sonni Studio makes you appreciate the artist’s talent with its money and happiness. At least that’s what I think it says. After all, I’m a writer not an artist.
The Miami International Auto Show runs through Nov. 16. I dislike art museums as much as the next guy, but this is one gallery I could spend hours in.
