Artist Turns Abandoned Cars into Public Art Installations

Sao Paulo street artist Felipe Carrelli turns abandoned cars into art and garden spaces transforming neighborhood eyesores into beautiful public art installations. Felipe first came up with the idea last year after a car that was abandoned on the street near where he works became a shelter for homeless people. The urban project called “Ocupe Carrinho”, or Occupy the Car has been welcomed by the neighborhood, so much so that a lot of residents have pitched in to help beautify other cars. “People from the community are very happy,” says Carrelli, “they help us paint and also water the plants.”
