Works of Art: cars and junk


I can hear you all thinking: “last week you wrote about funerals, and now you expect us to read about art?”. Don’t worry everyone, this is about the best kind of art: the one that involves cars. First let me show you a picture of some cars you’ll probably recognize.

While these cars are definitely works of art in themselves, they are not the topic of this post. Instead I invite you to look at this picture.

Works of art cars from junk

Getting a sense of déjà-vu?

If you think that looks familiar, you’re absolutely correct. These beauties are the work of some 50 different artists. They made these cars, such as the Mercedes 300SL and the Bugatti Veyron, completely out of scrap metals and the likes which they found in a junk yard outside of Warsaw. (That’s the capital pf Poland, for those who wondered where on earth that is.) Now that is what I truly call a work of art.

Behold some more pictures to feast your eye on.

Taking “gear head” a bit literal

The pictures show clearly how these artists had a great eye for detail. These works of art are the best example of the saying: One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. It seems the artist took it quite literal and used junk to make these stunning cars. Too bad they can’t actually be driven.

    Wow, that must have taken ages to do. Imagine the insurance.
    By the way, I was wondering, do you want me to link another of your posts? I’m gonna assume yes, so look out for it in my new Porsche post. If you object, tell me 🙂


  2. Spectacular! I’ve always enjoyed folks creating art from auto parts. Creating auto art from auto parts is just great. When I rear your post it reminded me of a guy that creates enormous pieces or art all from old chrome bumpers from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.
