Of the 8,000 BMW Z1 models in existence, this one is unique. German artist A.R. Penck transformed the model into a work of art using symbols and images. His legendary stick figures are also in evidence.
Penck drew his inspiration from artists such as Picasso and Rembrandt – but also from cave paintings and his fascination with mathematics and physics. ‘Art on art, art on technology, that grabbed my attention – particularly the idea of art on a 3D object,’ said Penck commenting on his high-tech masterpiece.
