INSTINC & VOLVO

For the first time in Affordable Art Fair history, Official Car – Volvo and local gallery – INSTINC present: “The Art of Being Moved”, an exclusive innovative collaboration for Affordable Art Fair 2014. The iconic Volvo V40 sports hatch and breathtaking Volvo XC60 luxury SUV serve as blank canvases, transforming into visual works of art for all to see. The Volvo V40 – the subject of a live painting session at the Volvo showroom. Artists combine abstract and pop art sensibilities on this 3-dimensional canvas.

This rare collaboration is a celebration of INSTINC’s 10th anniversary, where 5 artists gain insight into each others creative process, while exploring the effects of working together on a new surface and medium. From bold strokes, evocative brushwork and drips of flowing paint, inspired by natural elements of grass, wind and rain, to iconic imagery derived from popular culture, such as the symbol of double happiness, amidst clouds of change and untold possibilities. The artists hope this “Happy Buoyant” will lead to future adventures and fruitful collaborations.

In the second installation of this art session, the Volvo XC60 takes centre stage at Arty-licious evening during Affordable Art Fair itself. Witness a live painting performance and be inspired by this masterpiece.

NEXT LIVE PAINTING PERFORMANCE: 21 NOV 2014@ F1 PIT BUILDING 18:30 ONWARDS
