Tyres for paintbrushes

Artist Ian Cook has unveiled his latest creation – painted with a racing car, a motorbike and a racing truck.

The 50 square meter painting was mainly done in Cooks traditional manner – using remote controlled cars as his paintbrushes, but was then finished off with the slightly larger tools. He spent 40 hours in his studio on the basics of the painting, but then spent a further eight hours at Brands Hatch circuit where he applied the finishing touches with the succession of vehicles.
