Dirty Bandits takes in the trash

Annica Lydenberg, the maker behind Dirty Bandits, recently released a new series titled I’m a Piece of Garbage. Annica took discarded street items and painted self- deprecating phrases on them, then Gui Machado photographed them on brightly colored backgrounds. The result was a series of physical objects as well as a set of prints, all of which are for sale.

“It’s about having character, but not always being desirable, current, or flashy. Using sign painting — a very traditional medium — to paint on drab, discarded objects and then photographing them on heavily saturated backgrounds emphasizes those dueling aesthetics.” Get the whole story behind the series and order here.
