Street artist uses reverse graffiti to transform dirty cars into animal art

April 18, 2017 by

Moscow’s filthy cars are getting a brand new look thanks to opportunistic street artist Nikita Golubev . Using reverse graffiti, a method of creating temporary art by removing dirt from a surface, Golubev etches amazing images of animals and other figures onto the sides of dirty vehicles. These unlikely works of art are part of his latest works in his “Dirty Art” series. Cars, vans, and large trucks are all fair game to Golubev, who uses his fingers and paintbrushes to wipe, scrape, and embellish images made on each surface. White vehicles encrusted in layers of dirt and grime offer up the ideal canvases for reverse graffiti , also known as “clean graffiti.” Depending on how much Golubev chooses to scrub away, he can create different shades of gray that give surprising depth and realism to his art.

The prolific Moscow-based artist, who signs with the name ProBoyNick, drew on his ample art repertoire for the Dirty Art series, from his experience in painting to digital art. You can see more of his work on Instagram and Behance . + Nikita Gobulev Via Colossal Images via Nikita Gobulev

Comments Off on ‘Zombie’ Pigeons are Falling from the Sky in Moscow

Living in a big city is difficult enough without having to worry about walking outside and getting hit in the face with a dying pigeon . The Russian capital of Moscow has become inundated with sick birds that become disoriented, spiraling around without a sense of direction and whacking into people’s heads — a phenomenon that some news outlets have dubbed the “pigeon apocalypse.” As the Guardian reports, the most likely culprit for the feathered assaults is an outbreak of Newcastle disease , a contagious avian bug that is also transmittable to humans but is not fatal.
