In 2005 a painting-project was carried out despite the fact that the Minister of Art really doesn’t like to paint… And being a bit color blind also makes it a bit of a chore to paint.

As soon as “Artist” is mentioned in a conversation the question “Oh, so you’re an artist, what do you paint?” seems to be inevitable. So finally I thought to myself… “darnation, I have to make a painting”. At the same time my car needed a paintjob and I had been thinking a bit over a project an old Hero (Warhol) made once for BMW. He painted a car (litteraly) so finally I found a painting project I could come to terms with. It was carried out for the Eslöv Biannual 2005 and was called “Warhol Replica“.

The old faithful that had been serving the Minister for many years (since 1990), first as a car and then as both car and art-piece – a SAAB 900 Aero mod 1987 with a 225 bhp 2-liter turbo engine. The new owner is a true SAAB-connoisseur and the Minister was glad to see the little gem end up in the care of a gentle SAAB owner.
