art is trash…

This summer NYC played host to a street artist from Barcelona, Spain.  In the few months he was here he certainly left his mark. Who is this artist?  None other than Francisco Depajaro, street tag, “Art is Trash” “Arte es Basura”.  Art is Trash is many faceted when it comes to Francisco’s style.  His humorous work often draws upon the remnants of our consumer culture in all of its disposable glory. His message calls out those that seek fame without substance.  The last couple of weeks I have been trying to find and photograph as many pieces as possible… because, like all good street art it is ephemeral in nature and in many cases already giving in to the streets.

When I posted this shot on my instagram account, @bytegirl24 he responded with this message about his work…

“+ART -WORDS.  Deals with little contribution to the appreciation of art, in this case, all papers sticking egocentric pathetic names over and over again. ”

Even an entire rooftop became his playground (taken from the J train just shy of Marcy Ave.)
