ART: FORD FIESTA TRANSFORMER

Artist Hetain Patel has literally transformed an old Ford Fiesta into a Transformer!  He started with a red 1988 Fiesta (the first car he ever owned) and with the help of this father a mechanic who converts cars into hearses, they built this monumental sculpture. The Fiesta is squatting, rather than standing up ready for action. Patel explains its concept: “This posture is a recurring image in my work and forges a link between the lower classes in India and my immigrant family in the U.K, both of whom sit comfortably this way.” Watch a time lapse video of Patel and his father creating this beast here.
