The annual Toyota Dream Car Art Contest invites children to share their ideas and creative imaginations about the future of mobility by drawing their dream cars.
Whether it is a robot fish or a flying car that blends into the surroundings, children have always proven to be the most imaginative, when asked what would be a great car of the future. Similar is the story of Dominik Czopek, who impressed the judges with his Bubbly Jubbly Musical Car back in 2016. We got in touch with him to see how the competition changes his life as an artist. The interview is by far the cutest one we have conducted. Read on to know more.
TGB Blog: Could you tell us about your style of art?
My musical car uses dishwashing liquid for fuel.
Dominik Czopek: I like to imagine a lot. For the Dream Car Art Contest, I drew a Bubbly Jubbly Musical Car with retractable wheels. It uses dishwashing liquid for fuel so that bubbles are released instead of toxins. It also plays lovely music so that everyone is happy, healthy and safe.
These days, I have been working on creating various models to play with. I love making different parts. Take a look at my park model below:
