Mobility x Art

The VW ID.3 kicks off Mobility x Art as a work of art designed by Swiss artist Gigga Hug. Together with Cristina Gallizia, winner of the Watson-Young competition, a colourful car was created that will be seen throughout the whole of Switzerland over the course of the next 12 months as part of the Mobility fleet.

What would you do to be allowed to design a Mobility car?

This was the Cristina Gallizia answer gave for the Watson-Young competition: “Fill a car with meals, food and tampons and distribute it all to homeless people” – and that was what won her the most votes. Together with Lars Kläger, Chief Commerce Officer of Mobility, she headed off to Gassencafé Sunestube run by the charity organisation Sozialwerk Pfarrer Sieber in Zurich on 4 December. In the boot of the freshly designed ID.3: lots of Christmas bags filled with toiletries and food.

Share your experience of the art car

Gigga Hug and Cristina Gallizia wanted to create a brightly coloured, cheerful car where the speed at which the car moves has an effect on the colours. What happens when colour meets speed?

About the artist: Gigga Hug

Brush strokes on paper become the stuff of dreams through digital processing. These multi-coloured works have an almost fabric-like texture which emerges thread by thread. At the same time, a powerful three-dimensional effect draws the viewer deep into the image. With trance-like certainty, Gigga Hug always determines the end point of the artistic process – precisely the point at which analogue painting is transformed into digital art. (Copy: Tina Uhlmann)
