ART of Motion returns to Washington Auto Show as artists paint cars on site

The ART of Motion exhibit will make its third annual appearance at the Washington Auto Show, with an avant garde design experience that befits a tier one show on the global industry circuit.

In cooperation with Automotive Rhythms, a trendsetting urban automotive media group, the cutting edge art car display will feature more than 8,000 square feet of experiential graphic backdrops consisting of painted motorcycles, custom autos, urban fashion and dynamic murals.

“ART of Motion promises to thrill auto enthusiasts and art lovers alike,” said Auto Show Chairman John Ourisman. “This partnership expands the Washington DC Auto Show’s niche as a host of connective and innovative exhibits that, quite literally, put a new perspective on the auto industry.”

A notable group of artists will showcase their talents in ART of Motion, including:

  • Edward Joseph, a.k.a. “Ed the Artist,” an abstract visualizer who specializes in lines that seek to influence using shapes, forms, colors and textures.
  • Shawn Mitchell Perkins, a.k.a. “SP the Plug,” who will bring his style of abstract, graffiti and realism to the exhibit using mostly oil and some acrylic paint.
  • Juan “CRI” Pineda, DC-based visual artist, whose distinct style is characterized as urban contemporary/street art, will offer realism for his creative works.
  • Maria Miller, who derives much of her inspiration from topics surrounding race and reproduction, will perform mural art on behalf of Mazda.

The ART of Motion will be on the third floor in Ballroom B of the Washington Convention Center, from Jan. 26 to Feb. 4. Artists will be painting vehicles and murals in real time for show goers to experience.
