Brooklyn-based Tyrrell Winston has an interesting approach to contemporary art. The creative gathers discarded objects and trash from the streets of New York City — this can be anything from cigarette buts and ruined nets to deflated balls and old basketball hoops. He then transforms his findings into meaningful contemporary sculptures that communicate a sense of nostalgia which is loosely tied to the discarded nature.

In addition, Tyrrell Winston's creative process definitely harbors some benefits for the community. Not only is the artists actively cleaning the streets and transforming trash into tangible objects, but he is also replacing certain items to contribute to social good. For example, a taken broken basketball net is replaced with a new one.
