3D artist turned classic cars into animals

Swiss Gallery MB & F M.A.D. presented a series of works by 3D artist Frederick Muller, united by the common name Rides of the Wild. In his illustrations, Muller tried to give the well-known classical models the look of a particular animal. For example, the Aston Martin DB5 did look like a hippo, and the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray – like an alligator.

The choice of cars in this case is not accidental, as they already carry signs of one or another animal: the Corvette Stingray turned into an alligator due to its elongated hood, the 1967 Fiat 600S into a panda due to the body shape, and the Ford F-250 pickup became a lion because of the powerful engine and “roar”. Well, the Aston Martin DB5 has become hippo thanks to rounded shapes.

Classic car models are increasingly becoming the centerpiece of works of art. For example, the Nazarene Biondo painter from Turin created a full-size Fiat 500 sculpture from a 15-ton block of marble, and the photographer Fabian Ofner used the Lamborghini Miura SV for his new work from the Disintegrating X series of cars that split into pieces.

In addition, cars become interior items. For example, the collector of supercars Pagani Pablo Perez used the Zonda Revolucion carbon body as an interior partition, and an unknown collector from America turned two broken BMW M1 sports cars into an art object.
