Saif Chilmiran Garbage Archival Print by Saif Chilmiran
Garbage Limited Edition Archival Pigment Prints on 310gsm Fine Art Paper by Saif Chilmiran Graffiti Street Artist Modern Pop Art. "This piece is part of the series, “Trash” which is currently on display at Courtyard Gallery as part of the “Pop Wall” exhibition. As a contemporary street art exhibition, my work corresponded to the gritty, do-it-yourself atmosphere of the collection. I think it fits well alongside the Dotmasters’ amazing stencils of trash bags since both series portray trash in different ways. Each of the originals took between 5 to 8 weeks. I use various elements from my garbage with some metalwork and plenty of epoxy. The items used are the disposable aftermath of my other works, taken from empty spray paint canisters, paintbrushes, markers, lighters and what happens to be occupying my workspace at the day." - Saif Chilmarin
