Ephemeral Art: Dirty vans and cars
Don’t you hate dirty car windows? Covered in brown dirt and dry mud? Well, some creative artists have found gold in that darn mud, turning dirty trucks and cars into ephemeral masterpieces.
Russian artist Nikita Golubev, aka Pro Boy Nick, @nikitagolubevart on Facebook, does traditional illustrations and portraits, but he also does street art in Moscow, what you might call “reverse graffiti.”
Using just his fingers or a paintbrush he scrapes away at the dirt on trucks and cars creating all kinds of things like a crocodile, skull, praying hands, or a scene out of Star Wars, giving Nick the nickname “The Dirty Van Artist.”
So beautiful… until it rains. Like all ephemeral art, it’s here today and gone tomorrow.
Scott Wade has been called the “Da Vinci of Dust,” but he prefers “The Dirty Car Artist” @dirtycarartist on Facebook.
Like Pro Boy Nick, the spunky Texan takes dirt on vehicles and creates artistic masterpieces.
Unlike Nick, Wade adds more dirt to car windows so he can make more intricate designs.
Dirty cars never looked so good!
