This Guy Roams The Streets Looking For Trash. What He Does With It Is Hilariously Brilliant.

Countless city streets are marred by piles of trash and litter, a visually unappealing scar on our society. Rubbish can be a depressing reminder of the state of the world… or just downright unpleasant. A Spanish artist by the name of Francisco de Pájaro is trying to change that, the only way he knows how. Francisco roams city streets, transforming piles of trash into something we could all appreciate: art. He adds arms and faces to bags, bins, cardboard boxes and more. His goal? “My intention is to seek the smile on people. I never stay to watch their reaction, I usually leave. But in general I think, or I want to think, I make them smile.”

Francisco is a sort of crusader, roaming the streets at night.
