American designer Chris Bangle sees car design as an art form, explaining how automobiles employ complex concepts, sculptural shapes and tremendous craftsmanship. Cars are thought of as a product but employ impeccably detailed aesthetics. Automobiles are self-moving things that have made our lives better functionally while cars are synonymous with art. Original car designs are handmade, with the same amount of attention paid to them as a sculpture would receive from their creator.
Bangle describes the incredible craftsmanship needed to create cars with rules of how to handle surfaces and push for innovation. Bangle quotes Michelangelo and describes how car designers can discover the figure within. Cars have sculpture, sensuality, creativity and an organic flow. Car designers search for love and the truth in beauty when designing their concepts.
