UK graphic designer and artist Chris Labrooy riffs on custom car culture in his latest digital illustration series, "Tales of Auto Elasticity." A follow-up to last year's "Auto Aerobics," in which Labrooy placed his bendy, sculptural low riders in a city park, "Tales of Auto Elasticity" shows pick-up trucks with yogic flexibility bending to extreme degrees in a rural parking lot. Though Labrooy's work exists only on the computer screen, it evokes sculptures like Erwin Wurm's pudgy sports cars (featured in HF Vol. 22) and Ichwan Noor's Beetle sphere (covered here). Perhaps Labrooy should consider sculpture as his next step.
