Street Art 2015
Participatory art project, focused on specifics of street art, based on specific characteristic of city of Zagreb – putting carton boxes out at night for garbage men.
Can compositions of trash in the streets be seen as /street/ art? Every night, the vendors of Zagreb are unconsciously creating compositions with different patterns and materials. Based on these compositions, I decided to create something which is in the minds of general public seen as “high art”. Abstract graphics, which are often seen in a gallery, usually not easy to understood by an uneducated person, are now co-created by everyday public.
Taking trash to the gallery is one part of project, other part is taking the gallery to the street. Using Mondrian color scale, coloring compositions directly on the street. Temporary street art structures live for few hours before being picked by garbage man.
