Nissan recently enlisted the help of Melbourne, Australia graffiti artists to create two glow-in-the-dark JUKEs, otherwise dubbed the #glowjuke.
Basically, the artists, Josh Meyer, Josh Brown and Chris Le, accepted Nissan’s challenge to re-imagine the JUKE by turning it into an interactive canvas.
Nissan wrapped two JUKEs with a special glow-in-the-dark skin and then told them to have at it with black paint and pens. (Meyer and Brown, known as Snake Hole, worked as one team.)
ARTIST: Josh Meyer and Josh Brown (Snake Hole)
NAME OF PIECE: Snake Wrap
“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. We decided to create a series of snakes that traced the shapes and features of the JUKE. We utilized negative space, so that the snakes were glowing, and everything else would be blacked out.”
ARTIST: Chris Le
NAME OF PIECE: Journey to the West
“One of my favorite TV shows as a kid was the Monkey Magic series. Since it is the Year of the Monkey in the Chinese lunar calendar, I thought it would be fitting to depict Monkey and his friends on their journey to the West. Obviously an Asian themed illustration must include dragons since they are a big part of the culture, so it was only natural to draw epic dragons weaving past the character on the car.”
