Art is moving on wheels
For the second time, an unconventional art marketing project “Art on Wheels” will take place in Estonia this summer. The aim of the project is to introduce the work of talented artists on unusual canvases, resulting in a moving art exhibition – Slowball road trip.
While Slowball is a slow-paced road trip with old cars, covering more than 700 kilometres from August 5th to 9th, “Art on Wheels” is an introduction to the actual journey, offering artists and designers from different fields to express themselves on exceptional canvases, cars. This year, altogether twenty old vechiles will be given a new unique appearance, offering thousands of people the opportunity to get acquainted with Estonian art and artists.
Illustrator Triin Valvas, painter Madis Laur and tattoo artist Big Mora from Pirados Studios have already contributed in the process with their talent. Old Saab’s, Lada’s, Volkswagen’s and Audi’s are still waiting for their turn to come back to life under the hands of design agency AKU, illustrators Kaspar Kannelmäe, Eili Lepik and Ryan Chapman, Karl Eelmaa alias Charlekas and many more.
“Art on Wheels” painting sessions take place in a newly opened inspiring garden space Pada. Slowball cars are always there during the summer season, greeting visitors in front of the entrance.
First Slowball road trip took place in 2013, when participants underwent a total of 1536 kilometres through Tallinn-Riga-Kaunas-Warsaw-Berlin. This year, Slowball will take up to one hundred participants from Estonia and Scandinavia through the beautiful west coast and the two biggest islands of Estonia, with the trajectory of Tallinn-Haapsalu-HiiumaaSaaremaa-Pärnu-Tallinn.
