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

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

Shigeichiro Takeuchi created Swing Bin , a sculptural piece of art that looks almost too beautiful for its actual role as a trash can . The deceptively simple design follows a minimalist aesthetic and consists of just two pieces: a cylinder with a diagonal cut and a wooden oval so precisely carved that the Swing Bin opens and closes without the need for screws, gears, or wires. Available in white or black, the elegant Swing Bin is currently seeking $65,000 in Kickstarter funds by September 14 and is already over a third of the way there. + Swing Bin Kickstarter The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
