Scott Wade’s Dirty Car Art

Filed under: art classes, performace art — Tags: , , — popularkinetics @ 9:35 pm

They’re not a pop-up books, but they’re movable and can “pop-up” anywhere. They’re Scott Wade’s dirty car artworks. Drawn into the dust and grime on car windows, these classic art images evolve with the weather, the elements, and the passage of time. See more of Scott’s ephemeral creations at his web site,



  1. I have never seen those before, they are pretty cool! So does he really wait until he finds a perfectly dusted car or does he just add the dust and then make his artwork? Either way it’s pretty sweet. Oh FYI- The folks at Warranty Direct have made this really helpful blog that tells you everything you would ever want to know about car warranties. If you need any info on this topic I definitely suggest you check it out.
    Thanks for the great post!
