From the art of pin striping, muraling, and car customizing, this “street” culture has become an accepted artistic movement that is now embraced by art galleries and museums around the world. The centerpiece of Low and Slow is Mister Cartoon’s fully customized 1979 Monte Carlo with a one-of-a-kind flake paint job and muraled frame and chassis. Also on display are customized car part “canvases” by some of the leading lowrider artists including Mister Cartoon, Efrain “Bugs” Gonzales, O.G. Abel, Danny D and Mike Pickel, as well as contemporary artists Sandow Birk, Vincent Valdez, MAC, and Ben Beshaw. Among the car part “canvases” are Estevan Oriol’s lowrider lifestyle photographs, which provide a provocative glimpse into this fascinating culture.
The artists’ car part “canvases” are for sale with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Free Arts of Arizona.
