Cardboard Spray Cans

Bill Barminski’s recent sculptures are like cardboard boxes impersonating vintage spray paint cans. (See also: Trans Cans) They even include something inside so that they rattle when you shake them.

I like the rough way they’re folded to approximate a cylinder. (See also: cylindrical football)

He’s made quite a few…

While some of these brands are clearly authentic (e.g.: Krylon), others are apparently fictional products. (I don’t think Sprite® ever made spray paint, for example.)
