Honey, I spray-painted the Bentley!
The car in question, a Bentley Arnage from 2006, ferries Les Trois Rois’ guests between the hot spots of Basel and has been a mainstay of the Grand Hotel for a number of years. But it’s now almost unrecognisable, after a graffiti makeover by Swiss street artist Thierry Furger, the Artstübli Gallery, and students from FG Basel, as part of a cultural school project titled ‘Media and Art’. Said to evoke the cheerfulness of the 300-year-old hotel and connect its rich past with its exciting present, you certainly won’t miss this rolling piece of artwork on the historic streets of Basel.
