What’s rapid and cutting-edge, with street art all over? Stop by STRADA VELOCE: Italian Automotive Excellence Meets Art of the Street at Dorian Grey Gallery Thursday night, on view from Sept 18-Oct 5 in the East Village, to witness cutting-edge art merge with luxury Italian vehicles. The highlight? An Art Car by Bronx-born, world-renowned street artist CRASH, here decorating a high caliber luxury F430 Ferrari. CRASH makes a poetic return to his transportation-tagging roots after years of national and international acclaim spent lending his talents to everything from the canvas to Fender stratocasters. Here his work is realized over the entire body of the Ferrari Art Car, colorfully appealing from all angles.

STRADA VELOCE presents more than CRASH’s hand-painted Ferrari brought to life by the talents of Joe MAC’s luxury car customizing: other artists’ works creatively incorporate car parts in the show. British street artist and stencil pioneer Nick Walker takes his talents to the hood of a Ferrari. Fundamental 5Pointz founder Meres One fellow Bronx street artist COPE2 both lend their legendary graffiti  to the exhibit while Canadian artist Stephen Lack contributes with his own take on expressionist motifs.

STRADA VELOCE shows off not only the combined prowess of these artists: the show takes it a step further, engaging legendary car custom scions of Martino Auto Concepts in the creation of unique works that, in dialogue with the art-decorated car parts, transform mass-produced auto parts into unique art creations in themselves. Creations such as side tables from Lamborghini rims and desk lamps from Ferrari brake components — auto design elements you never even knew you were missing until now. The talents of these artists and artisans proves just the right calibration to create a show that serves as a driving force for innovating street art and adapting it to new, unexplored territory.

And all that at top speed.
