It takes him only 10 to 30 minutes to create them and gives him a great pleasure, especially when he receives the positive reaction of people. He feels very proud when people are coming close to admire his paintings and take photos of them.
3. Dust art by Ben Long-London
The 35-year-old British artist Ben Long studied Art and Design at the Camberwell College of London. He had little financial backing so he had to find a cheap way to express his creativity and dust gave him the opportunity to create masterpieces by using only one finger.
He calls his project ‘The Great Travelling Art Exhibition’, and his mobile canvases travel all over the UK on freight vehicles.
5. Dust car art by Mr Konjusha, London
It takes only five minutes to the 22 year old Mr Konjusha from east London to transform dust into beautiful paintings. At the beginning his reword was just the smile on the driver’s faces but soon his fame spread among drivers.
