SURREALMOBILE-ART VAN STEAMPUNK OUTSIDER ART SCULPTURE VEHICLE
This is a one of a kind Art Car made by me: Sir Robert Buchholz : local artist,sculptor / musician / spiritual eccentric / friend to the homeless and man about town.
This van came to me in 2003 from my friend Sir Steve Philips (Guitar player from my band-The Sir Knights)
Steve and I did much art together and he started the painting on the van and sold it to me. I was inspired to do a rolling sculpture of found objects and ready-made items after visiting Tyree Guyton in Detroit in the early 80's.He created the Heidelberg Project and is a world famous artist. I have been making found object assemblages since the early 80's and have done many art shows in the Chicago land area. The Dada and Surrealist movement is a main flux for my work. I owe tribute to Salvador Dal, ax Erns, arcel DuCham, an Ra, ndy Warhol and countless others as showcased on the Surrealmobile. After several years of work and hundreds of hours of work my machine was complete. I was invited to attend Art Car shows in Louisville,Kentucky and Eureka Springs, rkansas in 2006-2008. In 2009 there was an art car show in Berwy, Illinois and the Surrealmobile was photographed by the famous car spindle and was hosted by local horror show host Son Of Svengoolie ! I hope that my creation will have a new place of honor for the next owner.

The vehicle is located in Illinois and up until a few weeks ago had not been started or ran for a few years. I put a battery in the car this past week and cranked it over and the motor started. The vehicle moves and drives but it is sold as not being road worthy until everything can be checked out on it, specially the brake system. Currently the brakes seem like they are working but after being stored for a long time, he mechanics of the vehicle will need some attention to be sure that everything is safe and reliable. Obviously the intrinsic value of the vehicle is in the car art and the fact that wherever it is parked, ust about everybody will stop in their tracks to take a look.
Call or email with any questions-you are more than welcome to come by and have a look.
I may just have to park it on the steps of MCA and hope that they can give my orphan a new home !
