Wholecar Competition in Moscow

September 27, 2009

This season Carhartt introduced a paper model construction kit for a classic railway car. See here how Muscovite artists customized them during a local graffiti competition.

The event took place during Carhartt pop-up store opening and was a huge magnet for artists and fans alike. Get some impressions in our image galleries as well as from the video below.

This was not the first time artists had the chance to customize Carhartt material. In 2006 Carhartt introduced a similar construction kit. Back then it was a delivery van and people worldwide had the chance to customise it.

Five artists from the top ten cars of the van competition were from Russia, so it was only natural to support the wholecar contest in Moscow.
