RJFC Hits Madrid for the first time.

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…

074-LXXIVs

Ray Johnson Fan Club Relationship LXXIV ~ “MADRID continues to lead with ZARATHUSTRA ON THE WILD SIDE OF MY LIFE” was completed 3/7/2014 using trash found on the streets of Madrid on the album cover “Top of the Pops Vol. 31”.

This collage was left the same day on a wooden planter near the Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid, Spain.

I also left two stickers in Madrid.

RJFC Sticker #43 (below) was completed on 2/27/14 using only trash on a CD label. I made it while sitting at l’Excelsior restaurant in Mons, Belgium.

It was left in Madrid, Spain on 3/7/14, on a light-blue mailbox at the intersection of Calle de Atocha and Calle de San Pedro. There was a massive line of people there which started two days before, for the devotional pilgrimage to see the Cristo de Medinaceli statue of Jesus, which happens every first Friday in March.

RJFC Sticker #46 (below) was also completed on 2/27/14 using only trash on a rectangular label. I made it while sitting at l’Excelsior restaurant in Mons, Belgium.

It was left in Madrid, Spain on 3/5/14, on a signpost at the intersection of Calle de San Eugenio and Calle San Ildefonso, Just down the street from our rental apartment there.

Well, that’s it for this trip – Hasta Luego.

USING TRASH OFF THE STREETS TO MAKE ART ON THE STREETS.
I use only trash and found items to collage these handmade, signed & numbered stickers so each is one-of-a-kind. They are made to compliment my larger works which in which I use trashy paperback book covers, record & magazine covers, 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.)
