I'm currently making a new batch of commissioned dumpsters in between commissions and work for exhibitions. If you have ever wanted to purchase one of my works now is your chance. The commissioned dumpsters are currently my most affordable works and can be customised with personalised graffiti. 2 price points are available. One with a diorama base which comes with a glass dome and the other (featured here) which comes with the chainlink fence. For order and pricing enquiries send me a DM or email at [email protected] I will only be taking limited orders so get in quick!

Amazed yet? Well Joshua has quickly gained an international following for his incredible work, but it’s only those of us in Adelaide who had the opportunity to OWN a piece of the magic today – thanks to a fun idea he rolled out.

Today, Joshua will be doing a small scavenger hunt in the city. He hid 6 small boxes at various locations around the city and giving clues to their locations on his Instagram stories.

Hidden in one of these 6 random boxes will be a scratchbuilt miniature rusty spray can but only in ONE of the boxes. It even rattles when you shake it! Smallest spray can ever? Quite possibly!

Which box will it be inside of? Who will be the lucky person who finds it?

If you’re in Adelaide, be sure to keep your eyes peeled to his instagram stories from 10am-1pm Adelaide, South Australian time. Spread the word!

Follow @joshua_smith_street_artist on instagram and have instagram stories activated to find the clues!

Joshua will also be doing more miniature scavenger hunts in the coming weeks/months in other cities so keep a look out.

For those of us who will be chained to our desks, you can also buy Josh’s works (so save up your dosh).
