These Paintings Are Almost Too Trashy. Literally, They’re Garbage. But Not In The Way You Expect.

Its trendy these days for artists to repurpose pieces of garbage and turn them into masterpieces. Whats not so common is to do the opposite. That is, make art that looks like garbage. But thats exactly what American artist Tom Pfannerstill does, and he”s really good at it. In his series From the Streets Pfannerstill explores the impact of time by recreating the pieces of garbage he finds during his travels. Pfannerstills pieces start as intricate wood carvings that are then meticulously painted to look like the discarded object in question.
