World-famous South African artist, Dr Esther Mahlangu, who designed the unique interior trims for 7-Series four years ago, is back again at BMW.

And in case you don’t know where the gallery is in the 8th-genration Phantom. This is a space in the dash, facing the passenger, where customers can create true masterpieces if they so desire.

By accepting to creat stunning vision for the Phantom occupants, the 84 year-old became the first SA artist to create an artwork for Rolls-Royce.
