BMW has a long history of art cars designed by famous artists. Now, the German automaker is highlighting an art car that is neither part of the BMW Art Car series or one that was commissioned by them. This specific BMW i8 art car was created by the famous painter and sculptor Thomas Scheibitz, who designed the it for his friend Bernd Heusinger.
Scheibitz’s notes that he believes sports cars as sculptures, blending both creativity and technology. His take on the automotive sculpture resulted in this beautiful i8 that was inspired by one of his small paintings from 2017. To create the imagery on the i8, this painting was scanned and certain parts were enlarged. Certain parts of the painting were chosen for specific parts of the car so the art flows with the lines of the body. It’s truly a remarkable piece of art.
