With an agenda to push the boundaries and bring a younger voice to Australian TV, SBS 2 launched this week and looks set to unleash a unique perspective on edgy culture and comedy, travel and sports. This is a very welcome addition to Australian television, offering viewers ‘free-to-air and Australian premiere content including the channel’s [...]
The style might be identical to Banksy’s, and in Norway there is this guy who calls himself DOLK. This, however, was made by Skurktur, an art collective based in Trondheim, Norway. Skurktur’s street art is teeming with social commentary and satire, which is in keeping with the M.O. of the great Banksy himself.
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?
I recently visited The Wellington Club in the heart of Knightsbridge, London, for a magazine launch in which my artwork was featured. Decorated with original works by Damien Hirst and Banksy, hosted by a DJ who must surely have hijacked my iPod playlist, and designed on themes of decadence, promiscuity and urban rebellion, treading into [...]
All over Innsbruck, Austria, a mysterious man is taking photos with a lampshade on his head to, well, brighten your day. Who is he? Well, it’s not quite a Banksy mystery, but the mystery man is putting more on Facebook each week.
Last May, during the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, Banksy’s scathing critique of slave labor-like conditions in Britain’s sweatshops appeared on the side of a London shop. Now, having being chiseled from the wall of the store, it is currently being auctioned off at Fine Art Auctions Miami and is estimated to sell for between $500,000 to [...]
Graffiti and street art have always been transient forms of self-expression. Deemed by many to be mere acts of vandalism, the artists’ work generally exists only for a very short period of time (unless we’re talking Banksy, Bambi or Roa), before being washed away in the next public clean-up.
With the special Lost At E Minor party going down in Sydney tomorrow night, we’ve been looking through this year’s ‘Best Of‘ to pick out the most stunning images that we’ve all enjoyed so much to share on the walls of the venue. Each image below is linked to the original post. We hope you enjoy as much as we did, and if you think we’ve missed any, let us know.
Unurth is a website dedicated to global street art, run by Sebastian Buck from Los Angeles. The selection is curated from around the world – Roa, Vhils, Escif, and the very prolific graffiti artist Banksy. It’s been around for years, so there’s a good chance that you may have come across Unurth when you were looking for street art online. Visitors are also encouraged to submit art via e-mail, Twitter, Facebook and ffffound! It really is an awesome website where inspiration will strike.
Now this is a super neat idea. The Walls Notebook contains not blank pages, but somewhat blank, unblemished walls of New York City that beg for a Banksy or two. Now you can live your graffiti artist ambitions in these pages and doodle away without having to skulk around and stencil by moonlight.
New work by the renowned street artist, Banksy, has recently appeared in London. His Olympic-themed work is called Hackney Welcomes the Olympics and Going for Mould, and both of these stencils are full of Bansky’s signature social commentary.
Banksy strikes again, this time in his home town of Bristol. Though there are suggestions now that the work is actually by Incwell. Hmmm. Regardless, this representation of the Queen as the (in)famous Ziggy Stardust appeared on a wall on Upper Maudlin Street, near the Bristol Children’s Hospital, just in time to commemorate Her Majesty’s [...]
Taking Banksy’s art one step further and making it come to life. Literally! Nick Stern takes an already clever and witty idea and adds an extra twist to it, bringing famous street art off the wall and into the third dimension.
To commemorate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, the magnificently (in)famous Banksy has created, and made available for free download, an exclusive print entitled, appropriately enough, ‘Er…’ It’s available from the Pictures on Walls site with the following directions: ‘An exclusive download for the more ambivalent patriot. Simply save off the file and take to your nearest branch of prestoprint where it can be transferred onto a mug, tea towel or other quality item. Alternatively print onto a piece of paper, sellotape to a barbecue skewer and wave in an ‘ironic’ way as the Queen drives past’. Download the Banksy print here.
