Power washing your concrete driveway and sidewalks can be a huge pain. This one particular fellow takes much longer to power wash his house for an awesome reason. ART! This guy decided to turn this arduous task into a fun art project by masking off areas with chalk and taking advantage of the negative dirty concrete space that remains.
Check out his awesome detailed power-washed creations:
His first attempt. Pretty good!
Pikachu! He starts with an outline in chalk.
The finished Pikachu.
Here the artists attempts something a little more complicated – Bender from Futurama.
Doesn’t look too great at first…
But he pulls through again with another amazing piece!

We know what this is going to be :).
The finished Stormtrooper.
The artist with his magnificent creation.
Is this a Miyazaki tree spirit + Shy Guy??
Yes. Yes it is indeed.
The chalk work of Majora’s Mask is impressive in its own right!
Next step is to establish the thin lines.
Thickening the lines. Almost there!
Majora’s Mask in all it’s pressure-washed glory.
Artist and cat for scale.
Frank’s mask from Donnie Darko. So good!
The artist on Reddit stated he accidentally etched through the concrete with the extremely high pressure of the water.
“If you attempt this, make sure you keep the nozzle at least 6″-8″ away from the ground. I definitely accidentally etched most of Majora’s Mask into our backyard concrete slab. I’m not mad, but as long as the parents don’t notice, I won’t notice.”
I hope his driveway and patios get dirty again soon so we can see his next power washer creations!
