There have been many well-known artists who accepted the commission to produce a BMW art car. Everyone knows Alexander Calder, David Hockney, and Andy Warhol, but not that many know that each of them created a BMW art car. There were others - my favorites are the cars by Frank Stella, and Roy Lichtenstein.
