Reposting trashy art from PingMag

Sunday, August 2, 2009

PingMag, a sleeping Tokyo-based magazine about design, posted a long and very interesting piece about the art of Leo Fitzmaurice in April 2007. I was enlightened by a friend only this weekend, and feel that even though it’s dated, you have to check out the trashy relational art of plastic garbage bags, conference flyers and french fries boxes! Examples shown below, but check out the post!

Learn Japanese: Pink Chirashi

Indecent Fliers Box

That mischievous Little Shiva just posted this link to my facebook page, in which Tokyobling’s blog describes a special trash can (shown here) for “pink chirashi” or adult fliers.

If you are morally offended by the hand outs for adult shops and strip clubs, but too polite to say no to the smiling touts, feel free to use this trash can on your next visit to Tokyo.

Amazing.  Thanks Little Shiva and Tokyobling!

And speaking of the Japanese and their crazy ways, how awesome was Kunio Kato’s “Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto” reference while accepting the Oscar for best animated short?
