A.J Bocchino; recycling newspapers

Artist A.J Bocchino used New York Times headlines for his paintings. For ten years he collected headlines and used them in paintings with themes like '9/11' or 'Spanish American War/Iraq War' or 'oil'. He excised every headline in the New York Times which contained for instance the word 'oil' for ten years. The headlines are organized by subject and color-coded.
The digital version of the Dutch newspaper NRC Next posted this item on twitter. I love artists who show endurance in their work.
