Exhibition opening Saturday December 16th, 5 PM – 9 PM
“Art is Trash” (El Arte Es Basura) is the street name of Barcelona-based artist Francisco de Pájaro (Zafra, 1970). When he sees a pile of rubbish, he creates art with it. He rearranges boxes, garbage bags, broken furniture, old mattresses and paints on it, sticks it together with tape, leaves his trademark moniker and walks away.
His style of work started from his frustrations about the conventional art world, where art has been kidnapped by political and economic interests. He considered the contemporary art world to be trash and decided to turn this notion around by creating art out of trash.
For this exhibition, Francisco has roamed the streets of Amsterdam for materials to make an installation in the O.D. Gallery. This piece will be accompanied by his latest paintings and works on paper.
