This Kamloops artist uses his dirty truck as a canvass and takes his creations on the road.

On a recent drive from Cranbrook, Zach Abney took breaks to stretch his legs and do some 'finger painting' on his dirty truck.

“When I see a dirty truck at work usually I draw something on the side of it. I was driving back from Cranbrook the other day and I stopped a couple of times and every time I stopped I drew something on the truck,” Abney says.

He posted videos of his creations to his Facebook and his followers wanted to see more. He then covered the sides and back of his truck with his take on masterpieces such as the Mona Lisa and Michelangelo's Creation of Adam.

“I did Michelangelo on the side of the truck the next day, and then I did the bust of David on the other side the next day,' Abney says. ”Usually I like to wash my truck a couple of times on my week off and this week I wasn’t able to wash it because there were a few people who said I should clear coat my truck over the dirt so it never comes off.”

Abney says his creations have caught the attention of friends and family who would rather opt out of a car wash, preferring Abney to use their dirty vehicles as a canvas.

“Everybody seems to be offering up vehicles so it’s kind of funny. My sister really wants me to go down to Vancouver and draw something on the side of her truck,” Abney says.
