The Prize

You can be the new owner of Suzuki Hybrid Art: artwork, car and iconic symbol of the "Think Hybrid. Drive Suzuki" advertising campaign. 

The artwork, created by internationally renowned set desginer and special effects artist Leonardo Giacomo Borgese, springs from to combining of colors to turn something tri-dimensional into a two-dimensional creation, displaying the constantly evolving nature of design, art, fashion and technology in the modern world.  

This polymaterial work is a fine example of Borgese's style, which often features a multitude of different materials, making him an artist of reference in the areas of special effects, body painting and temporary tattoos. 

The car underneath the painted film is an ultra-compact SUV with a simple yet unmistakable design: the Suzuki Ignis 1.2 Hybrid. 

This 100% unique piece of Suzuki Hybrid Art aims to promote a pressing issue, one that Suzuki cares deeply about: raising awareness of consumption and harmful emissions by focusing on alternative and sustainable mobility.
