Oliver Bishop Young: Skip Conversions

Posted on May 5, 2009 Under Art


If the popular saying that one man’s trash is almost certainly another man’s treasure is true, that might make a dumpster (or skips as they’re call in the UK) the equivalent of a jewelry store. While we haven’t seen any diamond encrusted watches being peddled out refuse receptacles as of late, we think that might be a plausible undertaking for the likes of Oliver Bishop Young. The eco-conscious UK artist specializes in converting large rubbish bins to suit more enjoyable activities such as skating, swimming or just plain lounging around. So, the next time someone calls your living space a dump, you might not consider that such a bad thing.
