The Nissan Juke is spunky and creative—we all know that. But did you know that its unique look can inspire other art? A glow-in-the-dark Nissan Juke was used as art recently in Melbourne, Australia.
Melbourne’s White Night celebrations are a dusk-until-dawn celebration of the culture and creativity in the city. Local artists participate and everyone can marvel at the expression of art, music, and writing.
This year, local Melbourne artists Snake Hole and Chris Le accepted the challenge to re-imagine the Nissan JUKE. Nissan helped by providing two Nissan JUKEs wrapped in a special glow-in-the-dark skin, then gave them black paint and pens. The artists used these to demonstrate simple and raw talent, drawing all over the Nissan JUKE to make it pop. Onlookers could both watch or join by using a smartphone light to draw on the canvas skin.
“Our initial impression when we saw the JUKE was it had snake-like characteristics. The grill, headlights and long smooth lines resonated immediately with us,” said artist Snake Hole.
There you have it: the Nissan JUKE isn’t only a car, it’s a work of art.
