The saying goes that “ones man’s trash, is another man’s treasure” and there’s no better example of this than the work of street artist My Dog Sighs.
Taking discarded cans & tins that he finds in the street, he then sets about turning them into little characters each with their own disctinct personality and unique look. From the happy to the sad, from the angry to the cheeky each can’s facial expressions are created as an individual peice of art.
We think his work is certainly a lot of fun and who knows, maybe in the future he’ll expand his playfulness & bring life back to other objects that the man in the street has tired of.
The artist paints faces on all kinds of crushed cans, giving personality and character to each selected canvas. He says he is “drawn to novelty like a magnet, and loves reaching out to touch every person or thing that is fascinated with its newness.”
