Internationally known for his large-scale steel sculptures that are grounded in a minimalistic aesthetic, the French Conceptual artist Bernar Venet who over the past 50 years has artistically pushed creative boundaries, blending science, mathematics and art together to form works that truly fascinates, has now created what is called by Bugatti as the “fastest artwork ever.” As Venet who received the name of Chevalier de La Legion d’Honneur, France’s highest honor was commissioned by French automaker to create a one-of-a-kind Bugatti Grand Sport Veyron based on his artistic interpretation. And the result is the beautiful Bugatti covered with mathematical equations, which will be displayed at the 11th edition Art Basel Miami Beach, the most prestigious art show in America that allows art lovers to both discover new developments in contemporary art and experience rare museum-caliber artworks started.
To create this ‘fastest artwork ever,’ Venet translated the equations of the Bugatti engineers onto the car’s bodywork and interiors, which interestingly also made him realize how he could translate his passion for mathematical equations and scientific treatises into three-dimensional form.
On the inside, the door panels comes covered in more of the bright orange formulas and the dash panels and leather trim getting a rusted look.
Additionally, another signature Venet influence on the Bugatti Grand Sport Veyron is the rusted-metal finish applied to the supercar, giving it a striking two-tone color.
So far, no price tag has been put on this significant, collectible car which will be showcased during Art Basel Miami Beach from 5th to 9th December.
Besides, we have also over the times seen some of the other most exotic and expensive Bugatti Veyrons, including the one-off versions like the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Wei Long "Year of the Dragon" edition, the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport with porcelain body, the Bugatti Veyron ‘Sang Blanc’ special edition, the Super Sport ‘Sang Noir’ edition, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport Edition Merveilleux for Chinese tycoon, and the Bugatti Veyron Diamond Edition, to name a few.
