Aston Martin creates leather Vanquish in true Art Attack style

By Ryan Lewis, 18 May 2016 Car Style

Remember Art Attack? Aston Martin clearly does. It seems the British TV program may have inspired the luxury carmaker to create its own huge artwork, in the middle of its UK headquarters.

Aston Martin Vanquish car art

In a style similar to Art Attack host Neil Buchanan, Aston Martin has used offcuts of leather from its upholstery department to make a giant mural depicting a Vanquish, and caught the whole thing on video.

The leftover material is often recycled into small brand-themed accessories and merchandise, but some waste pieces aren’t suitable for that. So what do you do with them?

Starting with a white canvas on the atrium floor at Aston Martin’s head office, a crew of artists spent a day turning a mountain of scraps, in four different colours, into an all-leather Vanquish representation.

Aston Martin hasn’t said what it plans to do with the artwork, but hopefully it’s framed and displayed somewhere. Whatever the case, we’re sure Neil would be proud.
