JAY Z “Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film”

Cars And Films is a series of prints paying homage to some great films and the iconic vehicles used in them by graphic and web designer Jesús Prudencio. Based out of Seville, Spain, Prudencio embarked on this passion project with a simple, clean perspective. While most illustrators focus on the characters as the key players in a film, this series manages to encapsulate the spirit of each respective movie with a side shot of a car.
From the bright, yellow Little Miss Sunshine van, Roman Holiday‘s cute little two-person vespa, and Mr. Bean’s cluttered mini to Bonnie and Clyde’s bullet holed Ford V8 and James Bond’s sleek Aston Martin from Goldfinger, the series presents a wide range of vehicles that significantly identify their respective films. Each mode of transportation is iconically displayed like a movie poster, needing nothing more to capture the essence of each feature film.
Graphic prints and posters from this series can currently be purchased through its Etsy shop.
Excuse me ladies and gentlemen! A prank is about to take place!
