As a child I remember writing words on my father’s dirty car, but I was never able to create the beautiful works of art that Scott has made on dirty cars. It is even more amazing when you realize that the next time it rains the artwork will be erased. Knowing the story behind this extraordinary masterpiece will surely amuse and impress you. The making of unbelievable artwork all started with the artist’s fondness for drawing in the thick white dust on the mirror of his car. The artist experimented with different techniques to achieve detailed and shaded images.
About Mona Lisa/Starry Night
This image features Leonardo’s “Mona Lisa” and Vincent Van Gogh’s “Starry Night”. This is one of the artist’s excellent dirty car artworks. The images drawn in the dust are obviously temporary. One of the cool things about them is how they change over time. More dust amasses as the car is driven down the road. Early morning dew splashes and dots the image creating a patina. A light shower creates a deeper patina. The Mona Lisa/Starry Night is indeed a wonderful artwork. It was created with awesome detail.
