GREY AREA x SMART CAR
19 – 28 April 2013 at Santa Monica
Grey Area presents a truly unique event in partnership with Smart Car, featuring a custom Smart Car designed by Fallen Fruit and corresponding air fresheners. Having sought proposals from 20 different L.A.-based artists, Grey Area selected the vivid, tropical design from Fallen Fruit to wrap the all-new Electric Drive. Titled Honolulu Wallpaper, the print was created from photographs of fruit found around Honolulu’s Chinatown neighborhood. Fallen Fruit, a collective made up of artists David Burns, Matias Viegener and Austin Young, seeks to create “social experiments” with an emphasis on community within the urban space and uses fruit as the unifying factor in all their projects. The private reception on April 21st at 395 Santa Monica Place provides the opportunity to test drive the car, as well as a social art and fruit experience for all attendees.
