Local businesses team up to create Peaky Blinders masterpiece for motor industry fundraiser

Two Digbeth based businesses have teamed up to produce a mobile, Birmingham-centric masterpiece in support of automotive charity, BEN.

The ‘Peaky Blinders’ themed car, based on the hit BBC drama by the same name, saw Digbeth based vehicle movement specialists DMN team up with local graffiti artist, Panda from GraffitiArtist.com to create a true tour de force.

Partnership approach

The partnership has seen a 2005 Saab 9-3 Sport, with 168,000 miles on the clock, converted into a mobile work of art which will take on a four-day, 2,000-mile road trip from Saturday 5 to Tuesday 8 October 2019 in aid of motor industry charity – Ben.

DMN – the vehicle movement people – will be taking part in Bangers4Ben, the annual, multi-day road trip supported by Car Dealer magazine. The event sees 50 teams purchase a car for less than £750, paint or decal the car accordingly and, having completed the rally, sell the car at auction to raise money for the charity.

Automotive industry charity

‘We are delighted to be supporting Ben – the automotive industry’s very own charity,’ said Nick Chadaway, managing director, DMN. ‘We are very proud of our roots here in Birmingham, which continues to play a leading role in the UK’s automotive sector, and by commissioning local graffiti supremo, Panda from GraffitiArtist.com, to manage our ‘look’ we have captured that just perfectly. The result is simply incredible.’

Panda commented, ‘It was pleasure working with Nick and the crew at DMN. Nick has supported the street art scene in Digbeth for the past two years through sponsoring a couple of artists at the High-Vis Street Culture Festival. DMN gets the whole vibe of Digbeth and are true team players – much love to them.’
