Cars by Tom Frost

Cars

Bristol-based artist & printmaker Tom Frost has brought together his playful retro-inspired art and love of 1950s tin toys and created these truly unique model Cars.

The Cars are made using layers of carved plywood, which are then coated in Tom's retro car screen-prints and finished with wheels made of vintage Meccano and, of course, a suitably dapper driver behind the wheel. The ultimate retro toy for the big kid in your life.

Cars are £210 each from Boxbird Gallery. See the website for more details.
