Cars are sometimes seen as an extension of our identities. Particularly for young men, cars can become symbols or power and status. I’m strong, I’m fast, I’m an individual: Don’t stand in my way…
SICK! Cars is a new project that challenges these stereotypes about masculinity and looks at the pressures we put on people to ‘be a man’! Two ‘vinyl-wrapped’ cars have been covered in amazing artwork created by artists Woodrow Phoenix, Courtney Hayles and a group of young men based in North Manchester. Get ready to challenge notions of masculinity and everything that you thought you knew about men! Created with support from Autotrader.
