Felipe Galindo "Used/Reused"
Felipe Galindo presents "Used / Reused" a series of works created on disposable objects. Guided by the graphic qualities of throwaway materials (milk cartons, shopping bags, Chinese food containers, to name a few,) Galindo's work makes humorous commentaries on everyday life and consumer society. His work gives new life to the debris of our market economy and creates unique works of art inspired by the beauty and complexity of castaway objects.
