There have been several articles in the mainstream media (Telegraph and Daily Mail to mention a couple) just recently, about American artist Bill Guffey, who paints traditional scenes, but instead of painting from a visit to a landscape, or a photo, he uses the pictures provided by Google Street View. See his gallery here. In another gallery, he’s painted a picture from every state in the US (apart from Hawaii, that apparently doens’t yet have Street View).
Its a great application of modern technology to a more traditional pastime.
I expect everyone has seen the highly original ‘clean me’, ‘also available in white’ and so on scraped in the dirt on dirty cars (which is apparently called ‘reverse graffiti‘) …
Well, nothing quite compares to artist Scott Wade. He produces whole works of art in the dirt on cars (he must live in a very dirty part of the USA!)
Of course, the art work is fairly shortlived, but must be quite impressive to see. And of course, much better than ‘clean me’!
