Scott WadeScott Wade the Dirty Car Artist
Scott Wade, aka “The Dirty Car Artist,” is an internationally recognized artist with an unusual medium: the windows of dirty cars. Using fingers, brushes, and sticks, Scott creates detailed and shaded images on dusty car windows. His work has been featured in print and on television around the world, including Ripley’s, The History Channel’s Modern Marvels, TMC’s Country Fried Home Videos, and the CBS Early Show. The son of an Air Force officer with cartooning skills, Scott picked up drawing at an early age, as well as an interest in music. With skills in many mediums, Scott has taken commissions for sculptures and murals; free-lanced as an illustrator and graphic designer, and played as drummer and percussionist in bands for over thirty years. When he’s not traveling to create his unique Dirty Car Art at fairs and festivals, or for PR stunts and ad campaigns, Scott works as a GUI Designer at Airstrip in San Antonio, designs sets and paints scenery for his community theatre, and plays a few gigs each month near his Central Texas home.

Chalk Guys PhotoThe Chalk Guys
The Chalk Guys are Hector Diaz and Ken Mullen.  First introduced to street painting through the Lake Worth Street Painting Festival, in Florida, Hector was hooked from the start.  He quickly paired with lifelong friend, Ken, to recreate a William Waterhouse painting, which would soon become the first of many collaborations.  More recently, they started a journey into the realm of larger-scale pieces, as well as the exciting world of 3D chalk art, and they have not looked back since.  In the past few years, having officially dubbed themselves the “Chalk Guys,” they have shared their 3D street paintings all over Florida and throughout the United States.  For these chalk guys, street painting is about more than an image on a street.  It’s about the process, the crowd interaction, and the great friends that they have met along the way.
