Dirty Car Art


I'd never heard of Scott Wade when we lived in Texas, he evidently lived about 15 miles from us near the small town of San Marcos. His amazing artwork comes from living down one of the packed caliche dirt roads in Texas. Wade says his minivan or his wife's old Mazda were his canvas! His ability to turn a dusty rear window into a masterpiece has parlayed into a career as a "Earth artist," meaning he works with temporary mediums that don't impact the Earth. You just enjoy it while it lasts...

  3. Amazing talent! It's a crying shame his masterpieces are temporary, however, he's not likely to run out of "canvas".

    1. Really, something as plain as dirt can be turned into works of art... at least temporary works of art!
