Artwork Description

For artists like Greg Warmack (Mr. Imagination), collecting cast-off items and transforming them into uplifting artworks lies at the heart of their creativity.

"I like to make my art out of things I've found because they're there and they're free. When I'm walking through the alleys and on the streets, my eyes are always moving like a radar, looking for anything that I might be able to use."
—Mr. Imagination
