Desktop Dumpster – Trashy Street Art

Desktop Dumpster

SteelPlant is releasing a series of handmade desktop dumpsters that have been painted, inked, glued, printed and/or distressed by various street artists.

Each dumpster is unique, and the art and application methods will change with each release, so they’re guaranteed to stay unique as well.

Use it as a planter, a stationary holder, or just a cool piece of art to have around the house, because where else are you going to find an artified mini-dumpster?

If you’re in the San Diego area, be sure to check out The Space Invaders Walk, a virtual tour through the city that’s led by Invader, a famous street artist who makes an appearance in Bansky’s new film, Exit Through The Gift Shop.

In addition to creating your own space invader, you can also keep an eye out for various pieces by Invader that have been stuck up around the city, all in anticipation of the group show that’s opening at Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego called “Viva la Revolucion: A Dialogue with the Urban Landscape”.
