Berlin's Plastic Wrap Art
The Bosso Fataka are guerrilla artists, shaping the world around them with garbage and cling wrap. The four-person team has taken to the streets of Berlin to wrap and shape sculptures out of the urban detritus before them. According to Reuters:
Cling wrap gives the rubbish they use as components for their sculptures a bodily shape that allows the onlooker to perceive the creation as a whole, melting pieces of trash into an entity without concealing the individual parts. Humor plays an important role in their work.
It’s a humor that is subtle and weird, sometimes thought-provoking, but never meant to please. “Street art is always egocentric,” one member of the group said. “We don’t care if you like it. We just do it.”
