OK toy car collectors, kids, everyone else, maintain yourself. The Toy Atlas Rainbow is a wonderful installation of 2,500 old toy cars by UK artist David T. Waller. The piece won the People’s Award at the Arts Depot Open last year. As absurdy beautiful as this thing is, don’t you just want to take a running slide into it and start playing with all those freaking cars?
Car Atlas by David T Waller London-based artist David T Waller created Car Atlas – Rainbow, a beautiful art installation using nearly 2,500 toy cars arranged in a giant circular rainbow pattern. In 2010, it was displayed at Artsdepot’s Apthorp Gallery and “received the highest number of votes for people`s favourite artwork”.
This vibrant rainbow circle was created by artist David Waller, who rounded up 6,000 toy cars he’s collected since childhood and arranged them into rings of color, reminiscent of an OCD sufferer’s childhood memory.
