Lexus Europe has released ‘The Art of Standing Out’, a campaign that brings to life both modern and classic works in juxtaposing – and clever – everyday scenarios.

The flagship spot by The&Partnership’s CHI&Partners follows a Lexus NX driving through a cityscape. From the perspective of the passenger, the viewer sees Vermeer’s ‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’ hand her luggage to a bellboy outside a hotel before an inflatable shaped like Jeff Koon’s ‘Balloon Dog’ escapes the clutches of a young boy.

Elsewhere the car drives past a façade painted with Mondrian’s ‘Composition A’, as well as a shoe store decorated with a real-life vase filled with Vincent Van Gogh’s ‘Sunflowers’.

After passing Georges Seurat’s ‘Bathers at Asnieres’, the drive ends at a 1940s diner: a full scale recreation of Edward Hopper’s ‘Nighthawks’.
