I Draw On Trash I Find In The Streets And Leave It For People To Find

I am in Dali, Yunnan Province, China. It has a very famous and beautiful old town with abundant culture heritage and natural resources. However, lots of trash cover the streets.

I decided to use this wasted paper for art so I started a project: early in the morning, with a pen, a painting board, and no paper, I cycle in the alleys of Dali Old town and collect wasted paper. Once I find some paper or cardboard, I dismantle the wrappers, flatten it, and draw the architecture in front of me directly on it. After that, it will be nailed to the wall exactly where I picked it so that it could be seen by more people.

I want people to see art in our everyday life, even if it’s on wasted paper.

Firstly, I find waste paper on the streets

Then I sit down where I found it and draw what I see around me

The last thing I do is leave the finished drawing on walls for other people to find

Take a look at few of my works

You are a fantastic drawer. I always wanted to draw precisely your style. Here in Brazil (even here in Rio de Janeiro) there are not any drawing schools. Now I am 74 y/o, a Lawyer and I must accept the reality that one of my dreams did not come true. Sad. But congratulations anyway. Gilberto
