Don't we all love wacky art pieces and installations that make us stop in our tracks and be inspired, delighted or challenged.

Live Art Collective East will delight you once again with their artist-led organisation located in the East of England.

This summer they are sharing with us 8 different commissions as part of the line up of the Cultural Olympiad.

Showcasing an exciting selection of brand new collaborations, solo creations, community engagement and site-specific installations.

Some of the funkier art in unusual places includes artist - Richard Wilson's full-scale replica coach hanging precariously from the roof of the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill. Aimed to replicate the final scene of The Italian Job.

There will be an installation of a range of BMW cars with fncy bodywork (sure to delight the revheads) all designed by artists including Andy Warhol, David Hockney, Jeff Koons, Frank Stella, Jenny Holzer, Alexander Kalder, Roy Lichtenstein, Sandro Chia, Matazo Kayama which will be shown in a secret London location
