Dirt Car Drawings: Masterpieces In Muck Are Amazing

Scott Wade's alternative art medium is grimy yet genius

 Hours on the motorway, acid-rain downpours and going through muddy puddles leave anyone's car in a mess. But when most would pop round the corner for a premium gold wash, others get creative.

 Scott Wade was first inspired for his 'Dirty Car Art' whilst living along a dirt road. Often doodling into the dust of the rear car windows, from little imprints came an enthused art medium, with Wade's masterpieces going globally viral.

 Brushes, erasers and fingers are his creative tools. The automobile art take different times to complete, some a few minutes and others 4 whole hours. Featured in the media, like Maxim and the New York Times, the world's people have gone stir crud crazy for Scott's debris designs. The work is used in PR stunts and ad campaigns, and he has travelled across the globe, from London to Mexico, because of it.

 Scott likes to involve as many people as possible in his gritty graphics, taking the work to fairs and festivals. His own cartoonist father would make colouring books for the neighbourhood kids, and Wade too takes the dust drawings to schools, giving talks to the children.

 The artist plans big next, hoping for shop fronts and skyscraper images. That's a lot of dirt!

 Scott himself couldn't be more astonished at his success with the filthy medium, saying of his surprise viral fame, "Oh yeah, I mean, who would have thought people wanted to look at dirty pictures on the internet?" Indeed.

 Here's just some of his dirty designs to inspire you. The window is your canvas, just don't leave it under a pigeon-roosting tree all night... So here is his art.
