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.
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.

Someone is selling the secret to Banksy’s identity on eBay. Just who is the subversive British street artist has been a topic of much debate. Now the truth is near: ‘If you win this auction, I will mail you a piece of paper revealing the true identity of Banksy’. It’s yours if you’ve got $US1 million or so to spare.
Banksy is Howard Hughes, Mr. Brainwash is Charlie Chaplin and this is not a documentary about A list street artists (although they make cameos), this is a moving narrative with a real point of view. Stop talking about it; go see it, then talk about it.
We featured a series of guest contributions from iconic street artist Shepard Fairey, a little while back, where he wrote about the work of some of his favorite artists, photographers, and DJs. Fairey’s controversial and iconic image of Barack Obama was featured on the cover of Time Magazine’s 2009 Person Of The Year issue, but […]
Mike Leavitt creates interactive sculptures of contemporary artists using polymer clay and mixed media, with hidden features built into some of the figures. We love his model of Lost At E Minor contributor Ron English, and his characterization of the ever mysterious Banksy.
