Technicians across UAE create works of art from automobile parts

Think of it as the artistes at work. Al Tayer Motors, one of the UAE’s premier automobile dealerships, is staging a unique exhibit of some truly stunning works of art made from automotive used parts and scrap material, at its Sheikh Zayed Road showroom in Dubai till June 1st.

Titled ‘Creativity Recycled’, the display is the result of a competition organised for technicians of Al Tayer Motors and Premier Motors. Nearly 400 technicians from 11 locations across the UAE participated in a two month long contest designed to showcase their artistic abilities, by creating 98 art objects.

And the results are very ingenious, from a psychedelic looking Arabian stallion, a chess set creating using spark plugs; swans created from a radiator, a bumper lower finisher, headlight lenses, door handle, mirror covers and parking sensors; a Burj Khalifa replica made from black sealant, valves, radiator core, shims and a drive belt; and a butterfly made using a radiator grill, stop lamps, roof rail cable, air bag rod and a cam shaft, to name just a few examples.

The artistic creations, with their names and a list of the parts they were made from, will be on display at the Al Tayer Motors showroom on Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai until 1st June. Visitors to the showroom will be able to vote for their favourite five from the entire collection. The creators of the top three works of art from the five finalists, chosen by an internal panel of judges, will be rewarded by the dealership.
