I’ve always been intrigued by Banksy a graffiti/street artist, but never really looked into it. These are some of my favorites from a show he had which, luckily, someone toook a ton of photos of.

Link to photos page. There’s a bunch of celebrity photos at the beginning, scroll down to see the actual works.

I’m impressed by how acutely relevant the re-interpretations of old images and themes are, as well as how efficiently Banksy communicates really complex ideas about modern problems while still remaining openly funny. He’s kind of throwing the bullshit in its own face, making it look easy.

  1. I was going based on his Wikipedia page. Completely up for debate though. Also, I’m not sure if it makes a difference in terms of the quality of the ideas, is that what you mean? Or are you just doing some amateur investigative journalism? We should do more of that, it’s like being paranoid freaks but with an excuse!

  2. You do know we have the Banksy book at the office eh? :)
    Sachi: fight the advertisers on the same turf; which technically is your/our turf, which they have invaded with their crap. ;)
