Daily Dose Pick: Mark Jenkins

Street-installation artist Mark Jenkins uses unlikely juxtapositions to shake people loose from their day-to-day expectations.

The streets of world cities aren’t just the backdrop for Mark Jenkins’ sculptural interventions; they’re also an integral part of the work itself. His clear-tape and more realistic mixed-media sculptures of animals, babies, and scraggly, Robert Gober-esque transients incorporate edifice walls, bent poles, and even garbage piles into site-specific subversions of the norm.

Explore more of the artist’s street sculpture, venture inside gallery walls, watch videos of people interacting with Jenkins’ work, and meet a bunch of other Mark Jenkinses.
