Zim Zimma: Esther Mahlangu's BMW parks at the British Museum
Since the first BMW car was used as an unlikely canvas in 1975, a roster of art world heavyweights from David Hockney to Andy Warhol, Jenny Holzer to Roy Lichtenstein have transformed 17 cars into 3D artworks. In 1991, South African Ndebele artist Esther Mahlangu was commissioned to paint the 12th car. The white BMW 525i was coated — hub caps and all — in a mural of geometric pastel-coloured shapes creating an artwork which is at once radical and “traditional”.
