Beau­ti­fully de­signed both in­side and out, and equally po­etic in mo­tion, the Lexus LS drove four of Asia’s pre-emi­nent artists to cre­ate mas­ter­pieces from such var­ied ma­te­ri­als as metal, pa­per, glass and wood. This di­ver­sity is un­usual but ap­pro­pri­ate since the in­te­rior of the Lexus LS draws plenty of in­spi­ra­tion from non-au­to­mo­tive sources, par­tic­u­larly from tra­di­tional art forms. Much like the Lexus LS it­self, these artists are also not afraid to forge their own paths. Take Himanshu Agrawal, for in­stance.

“I don’t be­lieve in be­ing neat. If you want ‘neat’, use a ma­chine. Some­thing that’s hu­man will al­ways be im­per­fectly per­fect, but al­ways beau­ti­ful and real,” he de­clares.
