Avis Car Rental in United Kingdom for the first time has unveiled its exclusive art car available now for rent and one Alfa Romeo car you really don't want to trash.

Their art cars were created as part of a European-wide Facebook competition run by Avis to encourage members of the public to design their own art car.

There were more than 1,000 entries from across six European countries including the UK and the winner was Andrea-Victoria Halbroth aka Dea Vectorink (pictured above), an illustrator and tattoo apprentice who was born in London and currently living in Germany.

Her art car design will join two other art cars designed by Si Scott and French born animation expert McBess, creating the first ever public art cars to be available across Europe.

Avis is the first car rental company to join the art car movement, embodying the postmodernist philosophy that anyone can be an artist.

Recognized to have started in the 1960s and 1970s, the Art Car movement has recently seen a huge revival with high profile car manufacturers and artists getting involved like Art Car Central did back in 2007.
