What a great idea! By constructing angular, somewhat trapezoidal, wooden boxes, street artist Posterchild is transforming old flyer boxes into planters! Taking these often unsightly abandoned metal containers and reincorporating them back into the streets of Toronto as a beautiful planters is inspired AND ascetically pleasing! Well done sir.
According to the artist:
"I tried to think of better ways...to re-imagine the interior spaces of these flyerboxes- better ways to make use of the whole box- not just the exterior walls.

This is what I came up with. I think it’s pretty great, if I do say so myself. The boxes makes a perfect platform for planters- and with them you can guerrilla garden almost anywhere in the inhospitable concrete city! Best of all, it leaves the sides open for writers and artists.

…and with this “impending collapse of print media”? You may just see these appearing in old, abandoned Newspaper boxes."
