    This art is just rubbish…

    Sep 06

    … literally.
    As some say “One man’s rubbish is another man’s treasure” and this is very true in this case.
    Artist Justin Gignac produces limited edition pieces of art from the rubbish that he finds lying around in certain locations. It seems if you package anything in the right way someone will buy it.
    I’ve got to say I actually think it has a message as well, although possibly not helping with the problem of landfill sites or over packaging, more redistributing rubbish as keep sake items.
    The artist hand collects the rubbish and places them in sealed smell proof plastic cubes which are numbered, dated and signed. Justin has sold more than 1,300 cubes in over 25 countries.  He also has limited edition cubes that consist of rubbish collected from certain events like New Year’s Eve in Times Square.
    You can see more of Justin’s Rubbish Art over at his website > www.nycgarbage.com and you can also follow Justin on Twitter.

    @Andrew, you went all the way to New York and your one recommendation is to try the Peanut Butter M&M’s? Ha ha ;-D

    @Andrew , I’ve yet to visit, but when I do I might just collect some rubbish to bring back with me ;D
    @Simon, It’s really rubbish you’re right!

    Haha; like it. Funnily enough, the last time I was in NYC I saw no rubbish at all – the place was full of road sweepers and giant pigeons (Oh, and people too)…
