Art in the fast lane - D*Face debuts ‘Save the World’ art car at Moniker Art Fair
Cybersecurity giants Kaspersky Lab drive the forty-year-old art car concept forward into the 21st century with collaboration between British street artist and the Virgin Racing Formula E Team.
Ahead of the launch of next week’s Moniker Art Fair, Kaspersky Lab and Dean Stockton, better known by his alias D*Face, have unveiled the first-ever Formula E art car, in East London. As a fervent supporter of the arts and motor sport, Kaspersky Lab is presenting its own unique take on the art car concept, made famous in the 1970s.
Kaspersky Lab wanted to breathe new life into the high-end hot rod art car concept, by selecting a new set of wheels to work with and, giving an accessible, urban artist free range to do what he wants with it. The result is D*Face imprinting his bright, bold and colourful artistic trademarks on the Virgin Racing Formula E car; signalling the first Formula E art car ever made. The car, emblazoned with ‘Save the World’, features several of D*Face’s iconic wings and acts as a vehicle to illustrate a powerful message – that art can empower people to make a change.
