When I was younger, I used to do graffiti. Of course, a lot of people were getting mad at me for that. I realized that if I made birdhouses as a form of art, and hung them on other people's property, they would actually think of it as a gift to them.

Birdhouses are my first big recycled project and today they still play a key role in many of my works. Since 2012 I have made around 7-8,000 of them all around the world, some of them just outside my door and some on the opposite side of our planet. In the US, hundreds of birdhouses mark the route of Way of the Bird King from the Atlantic Coast to the Pacific Coast.
