Art is Trash: Street Artist Creates Monsters From Garbage

trashmonster4

Whoever said monsters are scary never had the pleasure of stumbling upon Francisco de Pájaro’s street art. De Pájaro’s garbage creations have piled up all over the globe, from London alleyways to the streets of New York, managing to create an inspiring variety of art from abandoned refuse. De Pájaro fashions painted old cardboard, garbage bags, and deserted furniture into human-like forms and fantastical creatures as a comment on human monstrousness. The author of the cliche that “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure” probably never realized how strangely true it could turn out to be.
