Afternoon Delight: Chevy Takes Street Art to the Future

by Jerome Weeks 30 Apr 2012 12:58 PM

Running and gunning with muralist Jeff Soto — and his new, decked out, robotic art car. Grafitti art as drive-by.


Afternoon Delight is a daily diversion for when you’re just back from lunch, but not quite ready to get back to work. Check back weekdays at 1 p.m. for another one.

Fit out a new Sonic with a turret paint cannon and a robotic arm sprayer, then hand the keys to muralist Jeff Soto. Sure, the video’s a glorified product placement for the ‘robotic art car.’ But hey, Renaissance artists included portraits of their patrons in their religious paintings. So Fast and Furious Meets Exit Through the Gift Shop here isn’t doing anything new in that regard. Enjoy the ultimate in mobile graffiti launchers.
