2020 » Bentley Motors x Secret Walls x Inner-City Arts, Los Angeles, CA USA
Three leading contemporary artists teamed up with Secret Walls to help Bentley Motors launch ‘Art in Motion’ – a program celebrating the power of inspiration as it crosses generations, and the release of the new Bentley Bentayga.
As the definitive luxury SUV that builds further on the outstanding success of its predecessor, the evolved design of the new Bentayga served as the inspiration for three original works of art, brought to life by internationally acclaimed urban contemporary artist Mikael B. and two other extraordinary young artists – each seeking to honor tradition by breaking it.
These inimitable and inspired paintings went up for auction in December 2020 and all funds raised went directly to Inner-City Arts, an LA-based arts education program that works to empower the next generation of creators. “Afterglow” by Mikael B. brought in $17,600.

“I always choose to go all the way. I am not looking to take an easy shortcut but to put in the work and do whatever it takes. When you do what is hard life becomes easy. When you do what is easy life becomes hard. The reward that comes after consistent hard-smart work is a unique and deep feeling that will stay with you like an afterglow of satisfaction.” – Mikael B.
