Julian Schnabel Maybach in Venice
REPORTED BY Yorgo Tloupas, 10, June 2011

Last week I was in Venice for the Biennale, and was invited by Maybach to see a car Julian Schnabel has designed in collaboration with his protégé Vahakn Arslanian. The art piece is called “The Ones You Didn’t Write – The Maybach Car”, and stood out radically in a car-less city, moored on the Grand Canal.

This is a test car that has previously been shot at, then painted by Mr. Schnabel.

Inside the windows are drawings by Vahakn Arslanian.

Julian Schnabel always rocks a good style:

We also had a dinner in the somptuous Palazzo Polignac. My friend Lola Schnabel was proud to have her name painted on the car.

Look out for an in-depth interview with Julian Schnabel in the next issue of Intersection Magazine.
