As much as I enjoy finding street art gems while strolling along the streets, I cannot stand tags and graffiti on unwanted surfaces. Here’s one that I saw on my street the other day.
Curses to the derelict that did that.
However, here’s an act of ‘vandalism’ that I definitely approve of. Moscow-based Russian illustrator Nikita Golubev sees a canvas where others just see dirt. He uses his skills in painting and drawing to create amazing pieces of art on dirty cars, vans and trucks.
I have no idea how they can bear to keep their cars that dirty, but it’s certainly worth it if you go to the carpark one day and find your car looking like that. If you’re in Moscow, you can definitely keep Golubev in mind as an excuse the next time you would rather stay in bed and read a book instead of washing your car.
