Getting busy with the aerosol

19th June 2015

It’s not often we’re asked to get our hands really dirty in the name of motor sport expression but in this instance we needed to shake up the status quo and have some serious fun with a spray gun.The ‘status quo being the VW Motorsport end of season celebration party in Wolfsburg with an exhibition of Helena El Mokni’s 14 iconic World Rally Championship photographs, elegantly framed in dark cedar ‘upstaged’ by two of her Global Rallycross shots from Las Vegas in bespoke, hand painted, sprayed and stencilled frames – with attitude.

Inspired by the graffiti art of Vegas and the figure work of American artist Keith Haring the frames used the stars and stripes graphic and key colours from the two Andretti Autosport operated VW Beetles, Rockstar yellow and 7Up green.

These funky additions to the exhibition set proved a popular choice as a further frame has recently been completed and is now adorning the wall of VW senior management.
