I'm all about throwing convention to the wind and "screw the purists," but that paint job is awful...

I saw this car or one of the other "23 in the world" at the Concours on Rodeo in Beverly Hills several years ago. Comparing this to other art cars, like the more famous BMW official art cars, I have come to conclude that they look better in pics than in person because the brush strokes, what normally appeals to the viewer in a painting, come off as a distraction on an automobile body since we are accustomed to seeing those very smooth, clean and shiny. This design doesn't appeal to me personally but I am a strong supporter of art cars in general.
