More Vinyl Wrap Art Car: Upgrade, By Kelly Jazvac


One more addition to the burgeoning [?] collection of vinyl car wrap art comes from Canada. And it's early, too. Post-Max, to be sure, but definitely pre-Koons and -Hirst.

Kelly Jazvac was commissioned by the Toronto Sculpture Garden to create Upgrade in 2007. Using only vinyl wrap inside and out, Jazvac magically transformed a used 1998 Pontiac Sunbird into a brand new 2007 Porsche 911. It's amazing. It looks just like it. If it weren't for the occasional creases and puckering around the door handle, you could never tell.

Since 2001 here at greg.org, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting greg.org that time.
