Hand-Painted Rolls-Royce Displayed During Fashion Week To Be Auctioned For Charity
A decked out Rolls-Royce turned heads this year at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York.
The Rolls-Royce was originally owned by car collector Frank Marzano, who selected Moon to paint his signature black and white designs on the car’s exterior to raise funds for charity; the car will be auctioned and 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project, a charity organization that supports veterans and wounded service members as well as their families.
“When I was a little kid, I used to drive my parents crazy drawing on the walls and furniture around the house. Now, getting the opportunity to use my art to raise money and awareness for a great cause like Wounded Warriors is truly something I’ll remember for the rest of my life,” Moon told New York Smash. “A Rolls-Royce is the ultimate symbol of luxury, and drawing all over it somehow feels very ‘punk rock.’ Being on display during Fashion Week last week was definitely a great experience, so many people were stopping by the car with mixed reactions – some loved it, others could not believe that I actually painted on a Rolls-Royce and seemed offended! But that’s what great art does, it causes a stir and gets people talking.”
The car was kept on display on the street outside of the Adriana Marie Co. pop-up store in downtown New York.
“’Our Painted Lady’ Rolls-Royce was a staple at the pop-up,” Adriana Marie, founder of Adriana Marie Co., told New York Smash. “The charisma from their team was super fun and such a pleasure to have at the pop-up store. We stopped traffic several times and even buses were honking to us and waving. It was great fun.”
