Painted Crushed Cans

I'm a huge fan of Pinterest. I've been using it for more than a few months now, but only just realized its true potential: the discovery of talented artists and their amazing work. My latest find is UK-based street artist My Dog Sighs, who creates beautifully painted faces on found materials including crushed food cans. He's one of the founders of Free Art Friday which promotes the idea of leaving art out on the streets in random places for passers-by to take home. 
"My Dog Sighs' work forms a narrative based on counterpointed poignancy that resonate with those that have the opportunity to find them. Moments of loss and then being found echo the materials used. Tin cans, once the receptacle of our sustenance, all too quickly rejected, thrown away, abandoned by a materialistic society keen to gorge on the new."
