Dirty Car Art ambient advertising

Dirty Car Art ( is one of the most original ambient ideas that I have seen. Rather than writing messages like 'Clean Me' on dirty cars, Texas artist Scott Wade produces works of art instead!

Scott Wade's dirty car art has gained such a following that he is now working for advertisers and using his dirty car art skills as part of commercial campaigns.

Brazil's TV Globo asked Scott to do a piece for their show 'Fantastico' - the result was the creation of Ronaldinho on a dirty car:

Another recent assignment was in Mexico for a PR firm representing Mattel. Scott Wade was commissioned to create pieces of Dirty Car Art for Pictionary in Insurgentes Square, Mexico City:

Whilst the images are created on dusty cars and wash away in rain, this work is extremely eye catching and is a great way of generating word of mouth buzz!
