Artist Scott Wade specializes in creating works of ephemeral art in the dust and dirt on the rear windows of cars. He’s been called the “da Vinci of Dust,” the “Michelangelo of Mud,” but Scott simply refers to himself as a Dirty Car Artist. His simultaneously beautiful and grimy career got started because he happens to live at the end of a long, dusty road:
"Scott lives on a mile and a half of dirt road – caliche, as the locals call it, road-base: a blend of limestone and gravel clay. Driving over this surface results in a fine, white dust that billows up behind any vehicle driven faster than a galloping turtle, coating the rear window. Being an experienced artist it wasn’t long before Scott started experimenting with techniques to achieve these amazingly detailed and shaded drawings."
Having perfected his techniques, Scott Wade is now a master of transforming filthy automobiles into temporary mobile art galleries.
