Once upon a time there were the streets of Barcelona, a ton of rubbish and a dude called Francisco de Pajaro. When the three collided El Arte Es Basura AKA Art Is Trash was born.

At Base Elements we’re proud to have met him in his early days and humbled as we watch his work evolve. Barcelona isn’t the only town to be graced by his installations with London, Berlin, Nantes, France, Dubai, New York, Chicago and Miami now on the Trash List.

It was only a matter of time before a big commission came along but no one expected it to be an abandoned hotel!
Francisco was asked to take the new Converse Chuck II for a test walk but they probably didn’t expect them to get this kind of beating.
