This collection of collage artworks features the amazing creations of Armando Lerma and Carlos Ramirez, who make their pieces out of recycled refuse while operating under the name 'The Date Farmers.'

Based out of their home in Southern California, 'The Date Farmers' gather everything from bottle caps to old road signs to bring their creativity to life. Beneath the upcycled nature of their art, however, there is also a transcendent layer of social commentary about race, equality and social injustice, whose breadth and scope far exceeds the deceptively humble nature of found-material artistry.
