Recycled And Rebuilt: Automotive Art

Artwork that includes recycled supplies can produce interesting pieces to look at. Taking old objects and turning them into completely new ones that grab the observer’s attention requires a creative outlook.

Eric Van Hove is a conceptual artist with an automotive flair and an imagination.

The V12 Laraki, his engine reconstruction of a Mercedes V12, is a one of a kind work. Completely taking apart a Mercedes engine, Van Hove recreated each piece with amazing detail.

He also had some added Moroccan influence. A grant funded project led the artist to Morocco where he received design assistance with the engine from approximately 35 different skilled craft hands throughout many regions in the area.

Over 50 different materials were combined to create the amazing engine replica. Some of the supplies used included various woods, fossils, stones and even remnants of animal bones. The intricate process took 9 long months and countless hours to produce.

Displays that don’t leave behind any car parts, like Burial Mound, certainly make an impression. This comes from an unknown artist, and almost makes you wonder if it was intended as art or was the result of neglect – or perhaps both?
