Art is defined by Google as “the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.”
No wonder humans, even in fact animals are given powers by God to create art, for example, a simple nest. Then there are people, who are gifted with some special abilities and they are different from others, and we see them in our daily lives in different walks of life. Such handful people can be called artists in their own fields. Till today, I could not understand the abstract art but there is something in it and an expert can talk hours about it. Automobiles are a piece of art as well. Designers spend thousands of hours to create a concept, which is later transformed into a clay model and then an actual prototype is made as far as its exterior and interior are concerned. Newer technologies in the form of computer aided designs, virtual reality and robots in the form of Computer Numeric Control (CNC) have given a whole new direction to the automobile industry, as new shapes, curves and lines can be created.
We have seen numerous replica cars on the internet where the exterior is transformed / influenced from some other car, but they are constructed on some other doner’s car. Recently, a group of 50 artists around the world gathered in Warsaw, the capital of Poland, to do something amazing. They got hold of a huge used car scrap yard and started transforming the twisted, useless piece of metal into something extra ordinary. The artists converted the metal into models of automobiles. The artists chose some of the exotic cars for their creations, like Mercedes 300 SL, Bugatti Veyron, Maserati Gran Turismo, Lamborghini Aventador, Fiat 500 convertible and a bike.
The artists mimicked to the smallest details on the interior as well as the exterior and are very close to the actual models. The curves, the lines, the size of a certain detail, are all pretty close to the reality. The sculptures look more exotic than the actual models of inspiration and one can’t stop praising the craftsmanship and its love at first sight. These art pieces will be on display in 2017 at the Dubai Auto Show, and I hope some of our PakWheel.com members might be lucky enough to witness them much closer than the pictures shared here. I am sure Pakistan has a lot of talent and we have some really creative artists with metal carving and creating abilities. I hope someone can make use of scrap junk and create something extraordinary like this. I think we all will agree to the famous quote “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”
