Into a Human Being the Same as Me

September 9, 2010

This hand painted Cadillac was parked in the Bywater on a couple Saturdays ago. I spent a while reading it, looking at all the faces, recording some of the prose painted on the car’s body, wondering if it stayed hidden until finished or was a motoring work of art in progress. I love the moveable art in New Orleans.

Family of Faces

A familiy of faces grace the door panel. Even the dog and ferret are expressive.

Detail of Faces

Here's a detail of the faces that accompany the writing.

Art Car in the Bywater - Passenger Side Door

Check out the smile on the back of the mirror.

Art Car - Wheel Well

The paintings follow all the curves of the car.
