For the Love of Cars: Auto Inspired Art

For the Love of Cars: Auto Inspired Art

Oh, men and their cars! Such a cliche, yet one that rings true to life for many. Rather than hide your love of our four wheeled friend, why not proudly display it in a more subtle way than perhaps, oh I don't know, parking your car in your living room? Here is a roundup of some automobile inspired art, both originals and prints, to adorn your walls.

1 - We don't have a source on the car photo, but blowing up a car scene from a movie (perhaps Bullitt or Mad Max) would make for a great art piece. This interior was photographed by Dan Hertzel and found via emmas designblogg.

2 - Kevin Cyr painted a series of 20 vans found on the streets of Brooklyn. Original paintings can be purchased through White Walls SF and some of his prints can be purchased through 20x200.

3 - The 'Van Day Out' Wall Dot features a photograph by Claire & Jeremy Weiss. It measures almost 3 feet in diameter and is removable and reusable. Available via Pony Rider.

4 - The City Rain series by Bill Sosin is comprised of photographs Bill took from behind rain soaked windows in cars. Rain Light, shown here, can be purchased through Cyanaa.

5 - Liz Kuball photographs the details of California that she didn't anticipate (it's not all sunshine and palm trees) after a cross country move. Untitled (Santa Barbara) is available via 20x200.

1 - Scott Yeskel's 'Samecity' by Scott Yeskel, available from Print Shop.

2 - Over The Edge/Ooh Child by Tim Green, available from Print Shop.

3 - Under Wraps Print by Leah Giberson, available via Little Paper Planes.

4 - Sunlight and Yellow, no.2 by Jen Zahigian available via Etsy shop Roadside Photographs.
