Just over a year ago, Romanian artist Adrian Mitu created 'Blue Coffee', a 30-day live painting marathon exploring BMW Motorsport history. He used a special watercolour technique involving coffee, resulting in 101 unique works of art. Organised by BMW Group Romania and the BMW Auto Cobalcescu Bucharest dealer, 'Blue Coffee' was implemented on occasion of the 100th anniversary of the BMW brand, with the support of Park Lake Mall Bucharest.
The project has created a unique perspective on BMW Motorsport history. Next to focussing on defining aspects of the company’s racing product range, such as the BMW 328 Touring Coupé or the BMW 507, it highlights outstanding moments in the company’s racing history. Other paintings showcase important BMW Motorsport personnel and special victories, such as the first Nürburgring 24h race won in 1970 by Hans-Joachim Stuck and Clemens Schickentanz with a BMW 2002 Ti.
