Chinese Artist Creates Mercedes-Benz SLK Out of Bricks: House on Wheels?

Chinese Artist Creates Mercedes SLK Out of Bricks: House on Wheels? 1 photo
People usually build statues to celebrate one’s life achievements. Some use their imagination so they could create abstract structures in metal, stone and wood. Yet, creating a luxury compact roadster out of bricks seems as randomly, as it appears to be crazy, and we like it.
Well, we like the car to be honest. After all we are looking at one of Mercedes' most popular models, one that has been around since 1997. Starting next year, the fourth generation will be released and the SLK-Class will be renamed to Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class.

Now, since a Mercedes-Benz SLK appeared in Psy’s most popular music video, Gangnam Style, we’re wondering if the artists was inspired by that particular car or it was a random choice. Day Yun, an artist from Xi’an in north-west China is the man behind this not-so-soft-top two-seater.

The sculptured Mercedes-Benz is planted in the Red Town Creative Park in Shanghai and is completely made out of bricks. According to Yahoo News, the artist used red brick, cement, steel and other materials and built to the original proportion of a real Mercedes-Benz. It appears the elaborate artwork also includes interior chairs, a steering wheel and gears.

Craftsman building cars with their own hands out of all sort of materials has become something quite popular in China. Some use real models and create perfect replicas, while others insufflate their view in the final work. One that we liked a lot is a handmade wooden EV that comes with a 12 mile range. Created by Liu Fulon, a carpenter from Shenyan city, Liaoning province, it took the gifted man $1,608 to finish it.
