The Unruly Limo by Niels 'Shoe' Meulman

Made with neither quill nor can, Niels "Shoe" Meulman paints his "calligraffiti," text art which combines the craft of calligraphy with the urban attitude of graffiti, on unorthodox canvases and with untraditional means. That prefix-"un"-is key to the Amsterdam-based artist and designer, a series of four identical strokes which create a meditative rhythm and open a world of creative possibility.

The Unruly Limo is a collaborative art project between Niels 'Shoe' Meulman, United Nude & Colin M Day. The car is a 1984 Cadillac Fleetwood 6 door limousine that was bought in Miami 2011 to be painted by Shoe and then driven around for Art Basel. Niels thought it appropriate to write quotes from the movie Scarface, which came out the same year the limo was made in Detroit.

The hood says "The World is Yours, the roof says "Eating, Drinking, Fucking, Sucking, Snorting" and the trunk says "Look At The Pelicans Fly". After Art Basel, United Nude shipped the car to San Francisco for Niels' art show at White Walls. It was hear that Shoe added color to the car and wrote "Tenderloin" on one side (as an homage to his favorite hood in SF) and "Suckafree" on the other.

After the run of the show, the limo was given to Colin to keep the adventure going and to document it along the way.
