Felipe Pantone has released footage of the process behind his ‘ULTRADYNAMIC’ art piece, bestowed upon a pristine 1994 Chevrolet Corvette.

The mid-90s C4 model is utilized as Felipe’s extension beyond conventional art and with dynamism surpassing graffiti. The artist previewed the work previously in early May but now releases a new video documenting the process of crafting the pearlescent “glitched” exterior of the automobile.

Curator Sarah Sperling speaks of the piece and the series in whole:

Felipe’s 1994 Corvette is the first in a series of 20 art cars that will feature prominent artists who have roots from the street culture, but have found a style that transitions beyond graffiti. I am aiming to crate a permanent time capsule for the contemporary street movement that we are currently living in. When “cars” become an outdated technology, this series will be considered relics of the past and the art will educate future generations to come. The cars will likely outlive the artists and spectators, hopefully becoming an important part of art history.

The paint job shimmers with a rainbow effect while graphics, meant to convey speed, are applied to the doors and fenders in mismatched patterning and intensity — an aesthetic synonymous with Pantone’s vision.
