Buick and the Art of the Tiger (Woods, that is)




He’s proved a master of all he surveys – on the golf course, anyway. But can Tiger Woods also make a name for himself on the art scene. Judge for yourself from this piece, which might, at a casual glance, remind you of Jason Pollock’s drip art. (Okay, we’re automotive writers, not art critics!)

To create the pieces, Tiger substituted what were essentially golf ball equivalents of water balloons, here filled with paint. A collection of these tee shot canvases will be auctioned off for charity, starting in June, at the Buick open. Tiger’s golf wear-cum-painter’s-smock will also go under the gavel. How much does the automaker hope to raise? No one’s saying, but didn’t we read about a $15 million bid for a Picasso, the other day?

  3. I think both the Tiger and Buick's ad are pretty cool. GM's design is really coming around. Maybe if this continues and the recession is over I will buy a new Enclave!!

  4. Clearly he has one talent, and is lacking in another! Maybe his next creative effort will be "Tiger" "The Album". Ask Terry Bradshaw, Bruce Willis, and Don Johnson about how that goes. Stick with what you know before you embarass yourself like these guys did.

  5. I think that this is actually just a little bit better than the "works" created by the elephant that paints.

  6. It is so creative. I love art and I particularly love Tiger art. But for selfish reasons, I don't want him to quit his day job.

  8. That is so cool. Now I want to see the balls striking the canvas. I notice there are five areas of concentrated color on the canvas: Red, Yellow, Green, Blue and Black, and in each area there are multiple paint "strokes" indicating he was intent on repeatedly hitting the same areas for each color. There's nothing random about where Tiger aims his shots. What a clever, creative and fun demonstration of accuracy.
