Why pay $60 for a Banksy (fake or not fake) when you can steal it? After all, Pablo Picasso said that, ‘good artists copy, great artists steal’. Well, at least that’s what the guys over at believe. The site tracks all the Banksy artworks across the five boroughs and gives us the status/condition they are in.

Banksy’s street art turned into print ads

Rebekah Rhoden Contributor

By Rebekah Rhoden in New Design on Saturday 9 March 2013

French art director Christophe Pilate had the interesting idea of taking Banksy’s street art and reinterpreting it in a new and more commercial way. Pilate logically assigned brands to Banksy’s art, creating unique print ads for the corresponding brands. So, do you think Banksy himself would approve?

Banksy rejected by New York Times, fights back with scathing street art piece

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in New Art on Wednesday 30 October 2013

Banksy’s latest installation smells of resentment. He wrote an article for the New York Times about the new ‘One World Trade Center’ project being ugly. Actually, he called it “vanilla” and “something from Canada”. The article was supposed to be another installment in his daily ‘Better Out Than In’ graffiti series. But predictably, his article was rejected. And like a sulking kid, he went ahead and made a big stink about it with this mural instead. Go Banksy. His work never ceases to make me smile.

Banksy’s scathing criticism of advertising industry

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Trends on Saturday 3 March 2012

Dammit, Banksy is a legend. Not content with smuggling his work into international galleries, satirising the snooty nosed high-end art world, and making searing commentary on big ticket talking points, the British street artist has now weighed into advertising with a damning critique of how the industry makes itself more powerful by making the rest of us feel completely inadequate. To read his full manifesto, click the More link. It’s very insightful, brilliant material.

Being an Urban Quilter, I love all things alternacraft, especially when they mix in street art. So I was stoked to see some of Banksy’s images re-imagined as cross-stitch patterns. Princess Animal is San Francisco’s answer to urban knitters and crafters, and sells the Banksy kits.
