until a car’s whole bodywork had been totally covered. “The
vehicle is a many desired intent within a society”, pronounced Sandro
Chia commenting on his work. “It is a centre of attraction. People
demeanour during it. This vehicle reflects those looks.” The pattern of a Art Car
was not his initial artistic impasse with an automobile. Even as a
child he embellished graffiti on cars. 

The rebirth city of Florence, where Sandro Chia was innate in 1946,
is a universe of his childhood and his youth, a universe in that he
schooled to take a witty and loose proceed towards a excellent arts.
As early as in a seventies he displayed his work during important
particular exhibitions and was shortly famous as one of a most
poignant artists of a Italian Transavanguardia. He sees himself
