Nikita Golubev is a Russian artist who uses a pretty unusual canvas. Instead of creating drawings on paper or on a computer, he makes art from the dirt on cars and trucks. Here are some of our favorites.
Got a dirty car, truck or van? Just take it to Russia and hope that Nick gets a hold of it. Once he's through with it, you'll never want it to be clean again, and you'll save a ton of money at car washes.
Thanks to Nick, sharks have moved out of the water and onto our cars. Fortunately, every car in Russia has its own dashcam. So if you're ever attacked by one of these car sharks, it will all be caught on tape.
Nick's art is mind blowing for a couple of reasons. For starters, it looks awesome. And in addition, he can do things like transform this dirt into water, which is the very thing that could wash off the dirt in the first place. How does he do it?
Da Vinci was a great artist, but did he ever make art on the back of cars? The answer is no. Sure, that's probably because they didn't have cars at the time, but Wade's still got him beat in that category.
Einstein. Hawking. Golubev. Wade. Four of the greatest thinkers of our time. In fact, Stephen Hawking is probably working hard as we speak to prove his new theory that dirty car art is totally awesome.
Scott says when he makes his art, he uses either "natural" or "artificial" canvases. At first he only used "natural" canvases, using only the dirt already on the cars. But when he makes art for a special event, he'll use an artificial canvas, adding on as much dirt as needed.
