The successful attempt was overseen by an official Guinness World Records adjudicator Fortuna Burke and awarded the Guinness World Records title on 20 March 2015. The painting, which took more than 61 hours to create, has been painted using more than 60 litres of luminous acrylic paint, on a giant PVC coated canvas.

The innovative finish applied to the Nissan Leaf absorbs UV energy and other visible radiation during daylight hours and glows for between eight and ten hours when the sun goes down; making it the ideal tool for the glow-in-the-dark painting.

Cook comments: “This has been one of the most challenging paintings I’ve ever been asked to create – but it looks fantastic! The full-sized glow-in-the-dark Nissan Leaf is one of the more extraordinary things that I have used as a painting tool.”

The Nissan-backed painting beats the previous record of 164.6m² set by Saint Lucas, in Eindhoven, Netherlands, on 23 January 2014.
