…Garbage is art?

NYC Garbage

You might think that trash is trash, but artist Justin Gignac doesn’t think so. “The 26-year-old spends his nights scouring the city’s streets for the perfect trash, then carefully arranges his finds in clear plastic cubes that transformed into pieces of art, signed, numbered and dated”.

His cubes normally focus on prominent New York City events, such as The Republican National Convention, New Year’s Eve, and The World Series, though his latest limited edition project takes him international as he worked with Ireland’s St. Patrick’s Festival Parade to create a series of 100 cubes to document the event. So far, Justin has sold over 800 cubes to people from 41 states and 20 countries. You know what they say, one man’s trash is… no, too easy.
