Dirty white vans are often spotted on the road, but we bet that there's no other van like this particular one.

Rick Minns has given his Transit van a makeover and turned it into a work of art by using it as a canvas to create various scenes, dubbing his work as "grafilthy".

The 39-year-old, who is a driver for a Norfolk-based floral wholesaler, attends art classes and has constructed art on his filthy Transit van by scraping away the dirt. As Rick's skills have developed, he has created a whole array of striking scenes, using the likes of cotton buds and tissues.

Winter landscapes, children playing in the snow and sailing ships are some of the scenes that the dad-of-three has created on his van.

The van driver has attracted a huge online following, with Rick uploading snaps of his work on social media under the name "Ruddy Muddy".

He was quoted in the Daily Star talking about his hobby: "Work might prefer it if I washed my van more regularly but this is much better than driving around in a boring old dirty van. It's just nice to see the smiles on people's faces when they notice."
