Aside from all the terrific Pink Artworks featured at the recent Spring edition of the Affordable Art Fair, the show’s two floors at Metropolitan Pavillion featured trash cans lined with these vibrant Pink and Black Polka Dot trash bags, which it turns out are part of the TRASH Project.

TRASH Project was founded in 2008 by artist and activist Adrian Kondratowicz as an interactive social practice that subverts the daily act of waste creation and disposal. The concept turns standard trash piles into self-generating colorful sculptures.

Kondratowicz’s TRASH Project is an artwork that inspires  mindfulness about waste creation. The TRASH Project’s mission is urban beautification and environmental awareness. The project aims to raise eco-literacy through community events that are free and open to the public.

GuitarTown Sunset Strip Art Project Adds New Street Art Guitar!

The Sunset Strip and Gibson Guitar have announced the addition of a new guitar to GuitarTown on The Sunset Strip, a public art project launched in August 2010 featuring more than twenty-five 10-foot tall fiberglass Gibson Les Paul model guitars strategically placed on the legendary Sunset Strip in West Hollywood. Well-known Los Angeles street artists have collaborated for this one-of-a-kind piece. The guitar will be on display as part of Maximillian Gallery and prominent art blog Melrose and Fairfax’s collaborative exhibit “What Graffiti is to New York – Street Art is to Los Angeles.”

The exhibit features work from Alec Monopoly, Free Humanity, Smog City, Bankrupt Slut, DeeKay, Bod Bod, 2wenty, Snyder, Gregory Siff, KH no. 7, Smear, Desire Obtain Cherish, CYRCLE. & DD$, Leba, and Homo Riot – a dream team lineup of the best street artists in Los Angeles and the world. The vision of these artists offers a rare insider’s look into the very heart of what is happening on the streets today. What Graffiti is… presents original, cutting-edge artworks, exclusive never-before-seen action photos from Melrose and Fairfax, unique sticker packs and Limited Edition Maximillian Gallery at Sunset Marquis embossed prints.

The collaborative Street Art Guitar was created by all of the participating artists and will be on display at the gallery during the exhibit, now through June 30, 2011. The guitar will then become a part of Gibson GuitarTown on The Sunset Strip and will be auctioned for charity this fall. A video of the construction of the guitar can be seen at This Link.
