From 6 to 9 April 2016, MECANICA took part in WORLD ART DUBAI.
The gallery made history by presenting an exceptional and unique work of art for the first time ever in the Middle East: THE TESLA S PK ART CAR designed and painted by Peter Klasen.
Created in Paris by Peter Klasen, then exhibited in Paris and Los Angeles, the car symbolises the alliance of new technologies and figurative art where the theme of mechanics mixes with different signs and objects that can also be seen in a selection of his paintings, which will also be on display.
In addition, the gallery also exhibited new Mecanic Art works by the hyperrealist painters Hideki Yoshida and Noir Mat as well as the street artist Yann Penhouet.
WORLD ART DUBAI is the biggest contemporary art show in the Middle East. It brings together artists from all over the world. Around 15,000 visitors attended in 2016.

History of an exceptional car in pictures :
On 13 November 2014 in Los Angeles, the MECANICA gallery exhibited the TESLA MODEL S decorated by the artist Peter Klasen.
Along with its partner “Heritage Classics”, the gallery welcomed a host of guests to a very lively evening, of the kind they do so well in America!
The “Tesla by Klasen” project began in Paris in 2014. The gallery gave the famous artist free rein to turn this cutting-edge electric car into an art object that is unique in the world.
On its first ever outing in Paris, Peter Klasen kindly got behind the wheel to treat us to an exceptional tour of Paris…
