THE ART OF DRIVING
Artomobile is a design line that allows you to reassociate yourself with these memories and introduce new conversations back into your home.
Artomobile sells a unique collection of bespoke art pieces, incorporating the culture and style of vintage and classic cars into our designs. The selection has evolved to become a well-curated trove of contemporary car paintings.
Founded by artist, Fiona Kain, the concept of Artomobile stems from a long relationship with classic cars, from her childhood through her father’s eclectic assortment of cars, to more recent adulthood experiences having owned several classic cars. Cars evoke memories of people, places and childhood, representing a time and place and journeys past. These paintings draw upon memories of your first car, the family car, the dream car, the car in your garage you are still trying to piece together… Artomobile is a design line that allows people to re-associate with these memories and introduce new conversations back into the home.
I have always been a lover of the classic car, previously owning many classic cars including my favourite: a 1958 Ford Zephyr Mark II.
These paintings draw from memories of your first car, the family car you piled into for holidays, the car your dad had to sell when you were little, the car you had to buy because the family was getting larger. No seat belts in the back and a bench seat in the front! “Keep it down in the back there you kids or I’ll pull over!” as your dad waved his hand around menacingly whilst still driving.
