Bin bags, rubbish, old furniture or art?

Francisco de Pájaro is a contemporary street and urban artist from Barcelona who specialises in turning bun bags, broken furniture and rubbish into human figures, monsters and animals.

His sculptures have appeared in London, New York, Barcelona and Berlin.

He challenges society’s mass consumption by making art out of items we throw onto the streets.

The nature of de Pájaro’s work means that it never stays intact, but he rejoices in his here-today-gone-tomorrow sculptures.
