A Visit To Greenman, the Manure Artist

During a recent bike tour we passed through the campus of the National University, which is always an interesting place, thanks to its frequent protests, colorful graffiti and radical left-wing politics. (It is also a good university).

This time, we also visited Greenman, an artist and environmental activist, who has a unique workshop inside one of the university’s greenhouses. His artwork is also unique, since he paints with cow manure. Greenman also incorporates found objects, including dead animals, into his work. For him, they have environmental meaning and transmit a message.

Normally, Greenman rides a green bike, dresses in green and even paints himself green.

Manure will soon be turned into great art.
