Art Cars Generally, As Found Art Objects
Art cars now very evident in the East, with a large event often held in Baltimore. In Canada, art cars are popular in British Columbia and also in the western Canadian plains with shows in Nanaimo, British Columbia and Regina, Saskatchewan. Other cars can be found throughout the world, most recently in Europe with the European arm of car-hire firm Avis supporting the movement. [from wikipedia]

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.

This car was found parked on shore near the houseboats. Over time, a garden had grown up surrounding it. Notice that the interior was stuffed with toys. The sign on the plate attached to a chair back, that leaned against the car, read:

Please
Be Kind

A car perfect for that quick dash to the market. Decorated with squares and dashes, this car was found parked in the downtown marina's parking lot. Notice the floral seat covers.

This car was found parked in the public parking lot at the foot of Main Street where it met Bryant Street. Its front hood (bonnet) was decorated with the front of a huge cruise ship. Notice the gulls soaring ahead, and the porpoise leaping from the ship's bow wake.
