Ian Cook – a.k.a Pop Bang Colour – has become something of a cult figure in the car world over the last few years.
He trained as an artist and taught for while then, essentially on a whim, tried painting with a remote-controlled car he’d been given.
Little did he know that experiment would become a career. His colourful, uniquely stylised paintings, using RC cars as brushes, quickly came to the attention of the wider world and Ian soon found himself with commissions from shows, manufacturers, PR agencies and magazines.
His work even became a sort of performance art, large crowds gathering to watch him create with his RCs.
He’s now one of the most in-demand motoring artists there is, with constant performances, commissions and a huge social media following.
Only Motors caught up with Ian at his new digs at Fargo Village in Coventry.
