Esther Mahlangu | BMW 525i | 1991

Project Info:

Dr Mahlangu became the first African and first lady to be invited to participate in the BMW Art Car Collection in 1991. This is together with other notables of the likes of Andy Warhol, David Hockney, Roy Lichtenstein and Frank Stella.

The BMW 5 Series that she painted has travelled extensively, generating much positive exposure on a global basis.

In 2016, this car graced the front cover of the catalogue for the exhibition at The British Museum titled ‘South Africa – Art of a Nation’.
