By a show of hands, who didn’t love Ren & Stimpy and, by proxy, the twisted and sick sense of humour of its creator, John Kricfalusi? Well, he’s back, and he’s created a suitably outrageous and bizarre title treatment for an episode of The Simpsons that aired in the US on October 2nd. Strap yourself [...]
Banksy’s back with a new documentary project, this time a cheeky look at the recent history of public pranks, and a play on the popular (read: dull) TV series, The Antiques Roadshow. The program screened last Saturday on Channel 4 in the UK. Watch on and be awed.
Most of my artwork deals with themes of pop culture, technology, fashion, music, politics and race. I’m kind of like a cross between Banksy and D’Angelo, as I like my privacy, but love real people and the art that connects us.
He’s a mysterious fella is Banksy. But some of the mystery has been stripped away with the launch of a new app called Banksy Locations, which acts as a field guide to tracking down the legendary artist’s finest wall work. Yup, $1.99 will bring us all closer to culturally hip.
I watched this on Netflix after watching Banksy’s Exit Through the Giftshop and Orwell’s F is for Fake. I wish I had seen them in the opposite order: The Rape of Europa, then F is For Fake, then Exit Through the Giftshop.
Itdrewitself met-up with the guys at UK street art magazine Very Nearly Almost for this candid look behind the scenes. Five years on from their humble beginnings as a black and white photo copied zine, the fifteenth iteration of Very Nearly Almost boasts full colour spreads packed with intimate features on the biggest names in [...]
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.
Blek Le Rat did what Banksy did twenty years before Banksy did. And that’s according to Banksy himself. Now creatives around the world have the chance to be flown to Berlin to take part in a live stencil art session with him. Upload a JPEG of your own stencil art to Hugo Create to take part.
Now, I work in Soho, but I haven’t spotted this. Yet! We’ve all heard of Banksy, elusive though he may be. Behold his more mainstream sibling: Hanksy. A BIG street artist, in the fullest sense of the word.
After narrowly escaping having the long-held secret to his identity revealed on eBay, Banksy has uploaded the original storyboard for his (in)famous Simpsons intro onto his website. Marvel at the genius of it all.
