Boring Things on Shopping Bags - Art Project

Boring_Things_on_Shopping_Bags

Love, an Italian design agency,  produced these limited edition series of prints for their ‘Love Of The Boring’ art project.

The prints make a satirical statement on how we tend to fetishize ordinary objects, especially when they are tagged with the ‘minimalist design’ label.

Snip from the site:

Pop artists proved (to) us that if you reproduce common tin can in XXL dimensions it becomes a craved piece of art. The magnification of boring things and their printing on a shopping bag elevates them from faceless bolt to a minimal design object. In other words – from boring to lovely boring.
