THE EUROPEAN CAR OF THE YEAR AGAINST MINEFIELDS IN CROATIA
Last year, Peugeot fought minefields with the Peugeot 2008 by Boris Bucan. The vehicle acquired by the Privredna Banka Zagreb allowed to clean a surface of 52 660 m2 / 570 000 square feet in the forest of Kotar near the city of Petrinja.
This year, Peugeot is back against minefields with the 2014 European Car of the Year by Lovro Artukovic.
"To paint an object that was designed by someone else is not an easy task for a painter. In the case of a three-dimensional object, which changes according to the environment in particular light, the space offered by the canvas doesn’t exist. The shape imposed itself as a logical solution. Thus the pattern of cloth wrapped in a transparent body is born." Said Lovro Artukovic.
"Peugeot is the car brand whose signature is: Motion and Emotion. We see ourselves as an automotive brand that promotes driving pleasure and mobility; there is some notion of freedom of movement. Mines are the opposite of this idea: they tie up literally as figuratively. The strength of this project lies in its many dimensions. This is the result of collaboration between Croatian and French, among private companies, an artist, and representatives of public action. Then it is a true partnership, which aims to improve the quality of life for all. It's a real message of solidarity from civil society to a scourge that affects us all." Added Tomislav Miletic, CEO of Peugeot Croatia.
