Opel celebrates 120 years of automobile production and we invite you to an exclusive art party with Maria Luisa Engels in the restaurant F40 Las Brisas in Rüsselsheim. The former colleague now devotes herself entirely to painting and wants to inspire people to discover the relaxing effect her passion. The Spaniard is convinced that everyone has creative potential. She promises a special art experience for advanced painters, but also for beginners. Engels: “I lead the participants step by step through the creative process.” And for the art party on May 7, the artist created two motif templates: the Opel GT X Experimental and the Opel patent motor car “System Lutzmann”. You can register directly via the Eventbrite platform (see below for more information).
“I want to encourage you to awaken your own creative potential.”

Painting instead of numbers
Maria Luisa Engels worked for many years as a controller at Opel. In the meantime, the Spanish-born artist has devoted herself entirely to painting. With her art parties, she invites you to awaken your own creative potential and discover the relaxing effect of painting.
In three to four hours, everyone can immortalize their own experimental vehicle on canvas. “The beautifully structured, pure flowing surfaces of the brand concept vehicle are literally an intrusive template,” says Engels. While the Opel GT X Experimental gives a courageous outlook on the Opel models of the coming years, the second motif leads back to the beginnings of automobile production in Rüsselsheim 120 years ago.
While creating the collage “System Lutzmann”, you can immerse yourself deeply in history. The motif is particularly suitable for those who have no previous knowledge. Duplicates of photos and original sales brochures of the historical car serve as the source material. “This allows everyone to create a great individual but also experimental piece of art,” promises the artist, who is looking forward to welcoming many colleagues: “At an art party you always get to know nice people and in the end you go home not only with a picture, but also with a great experience.”
“At the end of the evening everyone takes their own Opel artwork home with them.”
