Every Project Has A Story - Jeremy Lynch’s Container Art


“I make 3d street art from used 35mm film containers and plastic toy figures. I have been sticking hundreds of these Containers on the streets of Berlin and Toronto since June, 2006.

They are little sculptures that escape the eye of most; but when they are found, a sense of discovery evolves.

These tiny Containers are stuck to walls with the aid of super strong industrial construction adhesives, lasting potentially for years or until someone steals the piece or rips it down. Any reaction is a reaction. If the work stays up, is taken down in disgust or heading for someone’s collection, it makes no difference to me. I have no control; it’s street art!

I always take pictures of the works to document their lives. In these photographs the plastic toy figures become real, animated characters with a conscience. They live in their container world and speak to us, make us think, shocked, or laugh.”
