For the second year running an electric BMW car dressed in artwork created by a Swedish artist will  be seen in Stockholm.

Swedish artist chosen

This iconic artwork has been created by Katrin Westman and the car will be used to transport guests to and from the Market Art Fair which runs from May 17 to 19.

This year’s winning entry Wetland is from the mind of the artist known for her sensual and abstract artwork inspired by the Baroque and revolving around a dramatic and rich colour palette.

“Combining art and mobility has always been a passion for BMW. The collaboration with Market Art Fair gives us a unique opportunity to support young Nordic artists while emphasising our commitment to art and culture”, explained Johanna Kriisa, CEO of BMW Sweden.

BMW Art Car project

Last year’s winner was Swedish-ethnic artist Siiri and the idea for this Nordic electric offshoot comes from the global BMW Art Car project, where famous artists have been applying their artworks on cars since 1975.

This year will see the 50th Anniversary of the initial project which has seen BMWs created by such diverse and famous artistic talents as Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, David Hockney, Jenny Holzer, Cao Fei, Esther Mahlangu and Jeff Koons.

      I wonder when the world will finally realise electric vehicles do MORE harm to the world than conventionally fuelled ones?
