Public Propaganda

Dumpsters. They are the final resting place for all things trash.

This alley way is home to several works of street art as well as the dumpster piece.

They reside behind restaurants, gullies, and alley ways all over town. These typical hoarders of garbage serve their civic duty daily without complaint.

Recently they have been taken for granted until they were adopted by a few enterprising artists seeking to create new life and beauty on these cruddy containers across Phoenix.

Several dumpsters in the downtown Phoenix area have been uniquely transformed into gnarly pieces of street art.

Five-Eyed Geisha stares piercingly into the bustle of the city streets.

These works are but one piece of the quickly emerging street culture in Phoenix. Street art is rapidly enveloping the city and making people turn heads, it is a culture that looks to revolutionize how people view the stigma that comes to mind with graffiti and street art.

These dumpster pieces are trashing that former belief with ease.

Each of these pieces are by unknown artists and use a variety of mediums. They can all be found locally in the downtown Phoenix area and are easy to find.

Maps to locations of all pieces coming soon.
