I'm thrilled to have finished my entry in time! Everything is digitally painted and I've worked every day for the past two weeks on it. I can only hope that my entry will make it to the semi-finals so that all the details I've been putting in this artwork can be appreciated by the judges. It would be a dream come true to have my art displayed on the Fiat at the Miami art Basel as I'm sure every contestant feels the same.
For this reason I've depicted a balance of realism and surrealism. In a very abstract painting I've created elements to portray what will be going on inside this car. I find that white is very modern and defines the car well, black is sleek. The Fiat500L is inspired by Italy so instead of incorporating classic Italy, I went with characteristics; their elegance. Hence the swan on the back window as they are known for grace and elegance. To the left of the back window I've created a vase like shape, more specifically, a wine glass filled with the beautiful blue lagoon of Miami. Intertwined the corals and reefs, seaweed, fish, palm trees and even a lighthouse to present the elements of Miami. It swirls into realism and defines parts of the car in symbolic ways, such as the horses for it's durability, the outer space which can be interpotrated as a dream (pinch yourself and make sure you're really there!) but it also presents the amount of spaciousness that the car offers and one can only guess what the cheetah does, vroom!
Edit: I've added up close details in place of the the template text instructions, I haven't changed the size or dpi so I think this is permitted.
