Shane Bradford – The Bug-gy’s

The Bug-gy’s – Series of 13

‘The Bug-gy’s, Factory Reset’ are the second edition of Shane Bradford’s popular hand-dipped car collectables. With only thirteen (13) made, this set represents a fleeting opportunity to continue your collection. Whilst the green colour-way gives rise to the Bug of the title, it also references the Green Movement and recycling. The semi-organic reinvention of these original Matchbox Lesney diecast models from the 1970’s reflects the 21st century reevaluation of mankind’s relationship with the automobile. The cars, having been subjected to multiple dips in coloured emulsions, reverse the process of Fordian mass production, repurposing the readymade back into the something unique.
