There's a thin line between patina and outright decay, and artist Bo Lundvang seems to understand that threshold all too well. He's created unique pieces of art using massive 40-inch by 20-inch sheetmetal panels wrapped in white vinyl. The artist cuts out the profile of his desired image, removes the negative and allows the metal to endure the elements. Once the panels have reached the appropriate level of patina, Lundvang seals the pieces in several layers of clear coat to prevent further deterioration. The designs are appropriately stylish for office or garage decor, and Lundvang has crafted artwork based on everything from classic muscle like the 1969 Dodge Charger above to modern supercars like the McLaren MP4-12C and Koenigsegg CCX.

The artist hasn't listed any prices, so if you like what you see, you'll have to head over to his web site and reach out through email. Too cool.

      the rust looks to be the canvas......not the brush

      That "McLaren MP4-12C" is a Lamborghini Aventador.

      Nice! As a designer myself, I can really appreciate the "out of the box" approach for the medium used. Very cool indeed!

      Great idea. IMO it works best with the Charger and other classic cars, because people don't exactly associate rust with Aventadors and CCXs (and probably never will, given their carbon fiber bodies). Classic cars, on the other hand, can be beautiful even when they are old and rusty, making them the perfect subject matter for this canvas...

        What about those clouds or the rays behind the Charger, or the flowers and curvy lines around the lambo. How about oil paint for portraits or landscapes? This is an interesting combination of materials and designs, but the subject doesn't have to relate to the materials used for an artist to express his or her creativity.

      Hi all! The silver is the unrusted metal. See rust.lundvang.se for close-ups.
