For one Los Angeles artist, cars are her canvas and rainbows are her brush

When Mikki Yamashiro, a wrestler who uses the name Candy Pain professionally, heard that Peggy Noland, an artist and designer in Los Angeles, was wrapping cars in shiny materials, she made a decision. “I need a Peggy Noland car,” she said.

Noland got into modifying cars on a whim. “You don’t have to have a Lamborghini,” she said. Why not use a Toyota Corolla? To wrap a car, Noland applies a thin film (usually acrylic) over the car’s paint to protect it from rust and wear.

Yamashiro thought that the artist would put a metallic wrap on her Corolla, but instead, Noland covered it in yellow faux fur. “Even tough guys in giant trucks are giving me the thumbs up,” Yamashiro said.
