I just can’t get enough of buses turned art exhibits. I mean buses on their own are boring things; they are generally metal tubes with seats shoved into them. They hold you and take you to various other places. You can look at one, from school buses to public transportation buses to cross country buses, and pretty much get the gist of what a bus is.
Stylish bus transportation
Way better than boring billboards.
But when a creative artist and a bus collides, you end up with the most creative use of a metal mobile tube ever. I mean who could ignore a bus appearing to be wrapped around tightly by a giant snake? Well other than people who fear snakes but still? The fact that an artist can get the effect of a snake closely hugging and constricting around a bus is rather cool.
Or a bus cinched in by a giant seat belt? Or one with a person painted on the front as if the bus hit them and forgot to pull them off like an unfortunate fly? OK, that last one would bother me for a minute only because I’d then wonder why the bus driver had not tended to the guy.
But did each one not get you to look? To see what it was about? That’s the fun of fantasy bus art, it makes you stop and stare. And considering that most bus ads in general are boring typical billboard ads with words or pictures of happy travelers, having art like this makes a bus and its message stand out.
