With its distinct shape and style, the 2016 Nissan JUKE is one of the most artistic vehicles in the automotive industry. Nevertheless, two Australian artists recently took the artistic aesthetic of the Nissan JUKE to the next level, by creating a pair of glow-in-the-dark Nissan JUKE models.
Australian artist Snake Hole and Chris Le recently took on the challenge to transform models of the Nissan JUKE into street art as a part of White Night celebration in Melbourne, Australia.
“Our initial impression when we saw the JUKE was it had snake-like characteristics,” said the Snake Hole team in the press release. “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.”
Chris Le created a model based around the Chinese New Year, while Snake Hole appropriately selected a snake-like theme for their piece.

Believe it or not, the fuel-efficient, high-power Nissan Juke subcompact crossover model is already celebrating its five-year anniversary, and British paper artist Owen Gildersleeve wanted to honor the vehicle justly and in a way that highlights the originality of the Juke.
With the help of Nissan, Gildersleeve was able to create an Origami Nissan Juke completely out of paper, which took more than 200 hours to fold and more than 2,000 pieces of paper. The best part, it is the size of the Nissan Juke and almost looks real!
In a press release, Gildersleeve drew comparisons between his work and the creation of the Juke, saying the many pieces of paper “represents the thousands of people who helped bring the Nissan JUKE into reality in 2011.”
