Artists Lyken, FiST, Syrkus, Rue 5, Death Rattles and Al White from Glasgow's Independent Recoat Gallery, worked in a temporary public studio outside the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall in Buchanon Street for six hours on a Ford Focus to create a piece of artwork which will be featured for the next month as part of the Ford Centenary Tour.
Recoat Gallery manager, Amy Whiten, said: "The artists we have at Recoat have been doing great work in Scotland and we are delighted to get the chance to show what we can do. We've worked on a few different vehicle projects but this is the first time the artists have collaborated on completely restyling the paint job of a car."
The Ford Centenary Tour is an exhibition which highlights Ford's history in the UK and future plans.
