I’d visited Madrid once before back in 2004, but that was before I’d started doing any kind of street art. I have to say I wasn’t overly excited about going again, other than seeing our best friends from England who were meeting us there, but I must admit that it turned out to be an extremely enjoyable trip.

Here’s what I left while I was there…

USING TRASH OFF THE STREETS TO MAKE ART ON THE STREETS.
I use only trash and found items to make these one-of-a-kind, hand cut and paste, signed & numbered artworks. I use trashy paperback book covers, record & magazine covers, CDs, posters, postcards and other mass-produced media as a base for my hand-cut & paste collages, which I usually leave out on the streets for anyone to enjoy (or destroy.)
