This car was found parked on the street near Josephat Park. On its right side were the words, "Artistic License." Steve Porter, who decorated this car, is an artist and musician living in Europe. He decorated his Volvo external link so that, "Instead of visiting a gallery, the gallery content visited the outside world."

This van was found parked in the shade of a residential area. Its back doors were the most striking part of the art. Surprised eyes with a puckered mouth that blew smoke.
