Mini gets artistic makeover

STEVE LAGUE, MOTORING EDITOR

Mini has again come up with imaginative ways to promote its model line-up.

While Mini car art is not a new concept, it never fails to capture plenty of attention.

Now West Australians will have the opportunity to see it for themselves.

Up and coming WA urban artist Jon Ismailovski will ply his trade on a Mini Countryman Cooper S. The Mini panels have been wrapped in a white vinyl providing him with a "blank canvas".

He has been working on his design, which is said to reflect the fun, quirky nature of the Mini brand, at the Auto Classic showroom in Burswood for the past few weeks under the watchful eye of a camera with time delay to capture his progress.

He will complete the last five hours of work at the Mini stand at the Perth Motor Show Live in the Perth Convention Exhibition Centre at the weekend.

To give patrons a full appreciation of his work, two big screens set up behind the Countryman, will continuously show the time-delay movie.

The Mini Art stand will be one of the highlights of this year's show, along with a long list of supercars.

The headline attraction has to be the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 but there will be plenty who are just as keen to see the Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale, the fastest car built by the Italian supercar manufacturer.

The show will be open today from 10am to 6pm and tomorrow from 10am to 5pm. Entry is $16 for Adults, $13 concession, $8 for children or you can get a family pass (2 adults and 2 children) for $40.
