Instead of the unsightly piles of garbage you see strewn on the side of streets, Francisco de Pajaro’s garbage monsters draw you in for their different side of ghastliness.
Called the Bizarre Garbage Monsters Art London project, Pajaro transforms the various types of garbage we see into comically perturbing figures of exasperated garbage monsters using bright paints, strips of paper and pieces of cardboard. One such work features a horizontal pile of blue garbage bags all with drawn-on yellow, glowing eyes and bemused expressions, reaching with their arms for an adjacent wall. In another, pieces of flat cardboard, with a white, skeletal frame painted on, is piled on top of a low-lying heap of garbage chomping mischievously away at a green shoebox.
Since the artwork is temporary—given the need to actually dispose of it before the monsters truly become unbearable—and the various weather conditions that they are exposed to -- Pajaro takes pictures of them before they are dragged away.
