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”.

Esther Mahlangu works with the traditional craft of painting specific to her Ndebele community in South Africa, but her own colourful spin has turned her into an artist of international repute.
