St. Petersburg art collective Pprofessors (previously Red Men here), consisting of Lubin Andrew and Mary Zaborovakaya, created the Public Art Project Trashman to raise urban environmental awareness and, evidently, discourage littering. I wasn’t able to find more information in English or translatable Russian, but it seems pretty self-explanatory. I just like these colorful guys and think they’d put a smile on anyone’s face that came upon them — as well as give them the urge to toss garbage into the can.
In future, I can help you with the translating from Russian to English. so if you need help, write me)
Thanks Polina! I might take you up on that next time.
