Local truck art has been catching my eye these days. Yesterday, just as the first SoWa Sunday of the 2013 was opening, I spotted several painted trucks in the Artisan’s Market lot.
Above is the roving Lola’s Urban Vintage store truck, whose motto is “Where Street Meets Chic.” Lola’s carries a collection of new vintage and handmade clothes, and many one of a kind pieces.
The Fashion Truck is scheduled to be at a full roster of events during the month of May around Boston, South Yarmouth, Milton and Charlestown. Their mission, “Driving Style Forward,” appears to be working for this boutique on wheels with a curated mix of women’s clothing and accessories.
No story about truck art in Boston would be complete without a mention of the food truck scene that has grown fast and furious here in the last several years.
Food trucks are taking the country by storm. Mobile Cuisine, an online resource for the mobile food community, has just started the 2013 Best Food Truck Graphic Design Contest, in search of the best custom designed food truck or food cart design. Elle Decor magazine published this food truck art slideshow with some examples from all around the United States.
As the 2013 outdoor season gets into full swing here in Boston, I’ll be on the lookout for great graphic design on wheels. Stay tuned.
