Artists Justin Gignac and his lady Christine have another inspiring project in addition to NYC Garbage that we covered earlier. It’s called Wants for Sale and the idea is simply this: painting things they want and selling them for the actual cost of the item. The works range anywhere from $5.85 for a painting of Pinkberry to $2,500 for a painting of Betsey Johnson and Bloomingdales’ iconic Big Brown Bag to represent their desire for a shopping spree in SOHO.

They’ve now expanded on the original idea to give back to those less fortunate, with Needs for Sale. This time they’re painting items such as doors, toys, and even wigs. Justine and Christine are selflessly donating proceeds of each piece to Habitat for Humanity, Toys for Tots, and Locks of Love respectively.
