California driver turns dirty trucks into art


A Los Angeles box truck driver was recently featured by the L.A. Times for the unique murals he creates using nothing but the dirt on his truck.

Forty-eight year old Arnulfo Gonzalez has worked as a truck driver since 2000, but he’s recently garnered attention for the art he’s creating.

Gonzalez has an art degree but started driving trucks to pay the bills. Then, one day in 2016, while waiting around at a warehouse to pick up a load, Gonzalez created his first piece of mobile art — drawing a woman’s face in the dirt on his truck.

After receiving praise from dockworkers, the short-haul driver has started creating new works of art every other week, depicting horses, Jesus, a flying pig, and the Grinch.

Gonzalez is not the first to create art on dirty trucks — a Russian street artist went viral a couple of years ago for his truck art.

You can take a look at some of Gonzalez’s art below.
