Wilson's Car

San Juan, Puerto Rico



Commissioned by Santurce Es Ley. Wilson´s Car was dismantled in January 2018.

Wilsons Car is a gigantic recycle sculpture, made from broken pallets and various scrapwood which me and my team scavenged around San Juan. I made Wilsons Car as a contribution for the annual street art festival Santurce Es Ley, in the neighborhood Santurce in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The 7 meter tall giant smashes a car with his right fist. The non functioning car was donated by a local named Wilson, and a construction worker with an excavator from a nearby construction site, helped mold the car to fit for the giant’s fist. After the festival the sculpture was adopted by the largest museum in Puerto Rico; Museo de arte de Puerto Rico, and it can now be found in front of the main entrance to the museum.
