Essex 'van' Gogh shows how he turns dirty vehicles into art

A warehouse worker who became known as "van" Gogh has shown the BBC how he creates art on the back of dirty vehicles.

The artist, 22, who asked to be referred to only as Mr Konjusha, has had his work spotted at various locations in Essex since he started drawing on the vehicles in March.

Some of the images resemble a cross between a man and a lion, but he draws "whatever comes to mind, using my fingers and hands", he said.

BBC Essex invited him to show off his skills on one of the station's vans.
