Mundano

by

Wooster Collective posted this Familia Gangsters video yesterday. It features the work of graffiti artist Mundano who uses the wagons of cartadores (pickers of recyclable materials) as canvases for his political murals.

For a closer look at this ongoing series, check out this flickr album.

And if you haven’t yet, please immediately buy, rent or stream the documentary Waste Land. It chronicles another trash-themed Brazilian art project in which photographer Vik Muniz enlisted cartadores to help create massive portraits of themselves using recyclables picked from a gigantic dump, then sold prints to profit their workers’ collective.

    Speaking of recycling, I created a recycling center database that lists over 10,000 recycling centers. I plan to list all recycling centers in the US within the next year. Check it out below:
