Taking completely trashed cars, artist Felipe Carrelli turns them around by making them part of is old car art series that livens up the streets around urban neighborhoods.

Upcycling abandoned vehicles and turning them into sculptural works of art helps to salvage some of the scrap metal that would otherwise be filling up junkyards. Giving the cars a coat of bright, graffiti-styled graphics makes them cheerful street landmarks that add creative joyousness to the area. The abandoned cars get filled with plants and flowers, inviting nature to reclaim the environmentally harmful soul of the automobile.

Felipe Carrelli’s old car art series is such a renowned success that local residents want to take part in the project, contributing to the decoration of the salvaged vehicle installations.
