found art

Messy Nessy correspondent Francky Knapp directs our attention to the brilliant collages that keen-eyed New Yorker and street ephemera (detritus, trash) collector John Evans created daily from 1964 to the turn of the century, his outsider art (see previously) telling the evolving narrative of the city and its denizens individually from 1964 to the turn of the century. Learn more about the artist and explore an extensive, curated gallery (it was a tough choice to select just one example as all the montages were very well put together) of his works at the link up top and perhaps try making your own pastiche from whatever you have handy.
