This lifesize replica automobile constructed entirely from paper has hit the road, only it’s not going anyplace fast. Brooklyn artist Jonathan Brand has fabricated every single piece of a 1969 Mustang coupe employing nothing but paper. The 31-year-old constructed a digital blueprint of the automobile and then printed it on a large-format inkjet printer.
The different components were cut out and folded to make every single part of the car, right down to the nuts and bolts. In fact, The entire 1969 Mustang coupe has been made from paper, including the spark plugs, nuts and bolts, and radiator.
The final work will not be assembled into an entire vehicle, but remain as separate pieces of art.
The vehicle is on display in an exhibition entitled ‘One Piece at a Time’ at the Hosfelt Gallery in New York City until October 29.
And the final car is AMAZING!
This paper car is probably the coolest piece of art I’ve ever seen. Below is a video from the artist about the car.
