Pretty Taxing: Limited Edition Tax Disc Artwork from Gavin Turk, Sir Peter Blake, Sarah Lucas and more from only £40

Certificate-Turk-Tea

After 93 years of adorning windscreens up and down the UK, Britain’s leading artists are turning tax discs into limited edition artworks once they become obsolete on 1st October. The project is part of the annual Vauxhall Art Car Boot Fair and aims to give the tax disc a new lease of life.

The series of limited edition tax disc holders, called Pretty Taxing, have been produced by artists including Sir Peter Blake, Gavin Turk, Pam Hogg, Mat Collishaw, Sarah Lucas, Jessica Albarn, Gary Hume, Ian Dawson, Abigail Lane, Ian Monroe, Matthew Barney, Don Brown and Georgie Hopton.

Each piece in the series includes a certificate of authenticity and a circular artwork which are both hand numbered with their edition number. The specially designed packaging is also hand numbered on the outside and the circular artwork comes inserted into the Pretty Taxing tax disc holder.

Each artwork is printed on archival quality art paper using light fast inks to ensure enduring quality and vibrancy. The holders stick to any glass surface, so you can continue to display them on your windscreen or at home.

Vauxhall Art Car Boot Fair founder and curator, Karen Ashton, commented,

“Windscreen adornments are somehow intrinsic to the iconography of the car, now you can curate your own windscreen with custom made limited edition artworks from Pretty Taxing!”
