Some people study art and go through years of practice until they create a masterpiece. Or at least something close to that. And others make breath-taking contemporary art without even intending to. Bored Panda has compiled a list of accidental art to show that sometimes the most beautiful art is just pure luck. Have you created an accidental masterpiece? Then add it to the list below and don't forget to vote for your favorite!

I feigned to look at the man as he spoke, and he spoke with the malicious arrogance of a captor reveling in his triumph. My eyes, though, were focused on the brick and crumbling plaster of the cemetery wall behind him. They had come. The wall before had been nothing to strain my powers of credulity; just plaster stained with two centuries of moss. Like the tail-end of a hallucination, however, a figure emerged from the green-black discoloration, taking from the darkness of the mossy wall to give itself form. I glanced away and back again. Another form had appeared. My pursuer and I settled to exchange words, and by then I reckoned it was over. A spark played through his glassy eyes, and a knife shone under his coat as he bore down on me.
