[Yahoo! News}- A filthy vehicle can be incredibly unsightly but one street artist is turning them into incredible pieces of art.
Nikita Golubev regularly uses his talents to transform dirty vehicles in Moscow, Russia, sharing photographs of the huge artworks he creates on Instagram.
His popularity has surged on the site, and has now attracted more than 55,000 followers.
Mr Golubev often uses his unusual art to make social or political comments about serious issues such as war and pollution.
Other times, he uses his interest in science fiction and fantasy to create stunning images to liven up the city-scape.
Here are a selection of the artwork that can be seen on the roads of Moscow.

Tjalf Spaarnay is a great ‘mega-realism’ artist from Netherlands.
Born in 1954 in Haarlem, Netherland, he now lives and works in Hilversum, Netherlands.
I guess ‘mega-realism’ is a type of painting that really looks like a life-like picture.
Even though Tjalf Spaarnay paints all sort of things like flowers and marbles too but I love the tasty looking food paintings the most because they not only looked good and real but also tasty.
Mr Sparnaay has spent the last 25 years perfecting his craft, painting every day foods with spectacular realism.
I think that the Dutch are very talented people and can draw and paint beautifully because there is another great Dutch artist who draws amazing 3D pictures named Ramon Bruin – please click here for ‘Amazing 3D Art By Ramon Bruin’.
