Sean Martindale

This is an example of a public class about text-art with a well-known young artist talking about his works. To make a long story short (52 minutes of youtube in several sentences):

This is a guy from Toronto, his name is Sean Martindale and he intervenes public and semi-public spaces to draw public attention to the environmental or social issues. In addition, his playful works offer a fresh look at the existing urban environment to find the alternative use for existing spaces and infrastructures. Frequently, Sean Martindale uses salvaged goods and live plants in unexpected ways that prompt conversations and interaction. The concept is pretty easy to grasp: with the help of his works he points out, where we could make a park or organize a children’s playground.
