Art Drive!

I swear that I’m interested in many things other than cars, although my blogging on here would suggest otherwise. However, after attending the ‘Art Drive!’ exhibition last weekend, I thought it deserved a mention in the blog! Put on as a part of the London 2012 Festival, ‘ArtDrive!’ takes over the wonderful Brutalist Shoreditch landmark – The Great Eastern Street NCP car park – and uses it to exhibit the BMW Art Car Collection. This is the first time that the collection has been on show in the UK and it showcases 16 of the 18 Art Cars produced over a 35 year period. The exhibition starts on the top floor of the car park and as you work your way down each floor you see the cars painted by such legendary artists as Andy Warhol, David Hockney and Roy Lichtenstein. It’s a really great way to see these 3D pieces of art up close and the show works so well within the space of the carpark. The show runs until Saturday 4th August and is open from 12pm-9pm daily.
