Prometheus, 2018 – The Birth of Trashhecticcollective
trashhectic enjoys painting on upcycled items that they find during urban trash hikes and goodwill escapades, as well as taking on fresh commissions. they work on anything from construction site waste and bedsheets stretched over frames to brand new guitars and skate decks.
using the happiest colours they can find, the collective paints cynical and darkly humorous tales of Modern Day Folklore. subject matter often touches on dealing with mental health in the midst of a chaotic “neo-neo-dadaist” world.
