scott wade's dirty car art

The urge to write or draw on a dusty back windshield is something I possess and I assume it lies within everyone. However, the extent of my creativity when taking to the glass canvas lies somewhere between writing "DOUCHE BAG!" and drawing an erect penis with a disproportionate set of testicles. Scott Wade, on the other hand, has a brain and has done some pretty unbelievable "Dirty Car Art", ranging from recreations of the Mona Lisa over Starry Night, to portraits of Albert Einstein, to creepy Elf-dudes. What's really cool is the "impermanent" nature of his work; Wade says, "One of the cool things about them is how they change over time. More dust accumulates as the car is driven down the road. Early morning dew streaks and dots the image, creating a patina. A light shower creates a deeper patina."

Check out his gallery (1, 2) to see his work.
