We're far too lazy at Car Tech to ever clean our cars, but it turns out that's a good thing -- some genius with a paintbrush has devised a way to turn rear-window grime into incredible pieces of art.

That man is Scott Wade, an artist who paints using using dirty cars as his canvas. Rather than the usual dirt-art clich├ęs -- oddly shaped genitalia, "clean me", "if the Prius is a-rocking, don't come a-knocking" -- Wade creates entire masterpieces you wouldn't dream of washing away.

Wade, from San Marcos, Texas, uses an unusual technique. Ironically, he thoroughly cleans each car window before he begins his work. Once dry, he applies dust (plenty to hand in that part of the world) to each windscreen, grabs his trusty paintbrush and begins. Once done, he takes a snapshot for posterity then washes away all trace of his work.
