When it comes to art, art can be known for anything! Particularly speaking, photography. Instead of picking any kind of photography i decided to throw in a part of me into this. Cars have always been a huge part of my life and a passion. Cars are art! I say car are art because although it may be in most cases expensive cars give out a big chunk of who we are and our personality. For example I own two cars. A Cadillac cts 07 and then a Nissan 350z 03. Its interesting to show that both cars bring out a part of me and who i am. My Cadillac is all blacked out with a hint of pink. I love pink because I’m most definitely a girly girl. Then again I have a blue 350z because i also love blue. Which shows my tom boy side as well. What i did with my 350z was interesting because the body is blue but the rims are yellow which are complementary colors. Complementary colors are used to stand out, something i intended to do. My Cadillac shows my more of a simple or basic side of me having a black body, black rims, and tinted out windows. Aside from my cars i also love taking pictures of other cars too. Car photography is especially important form of art because its not always the car but its how you take the picture. Your shot can depend on lighting, angle, and back ground! A lot of people beg to differ about the fact that cars are art because you didn’t physically make these cars or car parts. It is although fact that anything can be art no matter what it is. Art is a passion. Cars are my passion. Aside from how a car looks another aspect about automotive art is also how it preforms. Just like how a art utensil is used to make art. Some cars race other cars drift. Racing is depended upon the engine and can be accelerated with turbo or boost. Drifting is depended upon the driver and how that driver turns the wheels to go side ways. My last example is the beauty and variety’s of art. For example, we have the BMW e30 89 which is a boxy type body frame and obviously is an older car. This car isn’t quite the eye catcher but the performance it brings upon a drift track is outstanding. Then we have a Nissa 240sx also not the best looking but its one of the most used drifting vehicles. Finally we get to the real and true beauty of it all. Its like the mona lisa for us car enthusiasts. The Nissan gtr skyline and the Toyota Mk4 Supra. Everything about these two cars give us enthusiast goose bumps. Some add there own color and taste to their cars and then others keep it simple and clean. What ever it is whether your cars old or new, black or blue, different or simple, it still shows you. This is something to me that i call art and what i think is artistic to me. Just because its not a sculpture or painting doesn’t mean its not art. Art can be anything we want it to be that’s the real true beauty of this subject.
