Australian-born artist, Dave Glass, has a passion for all things ridiculous. During his time living in Barcelona, he has harnessed things found in translation rather than lost, and put together a unique collection of words and art to reflect this. They Say Me Things is a project that collates the charming and nonsensical phrases he has come across in an English, Spanish and Catalan melting pot, and illustrates the absurdity of them through stencils and spray-paint. It gives me chicken wings, it does.
