BANKSY VS THE SIMPSONS
International street-artist and enigma, Banksy, just made headlines again. This time, the mysterious icon collaborated with television animated series, The Simpsons, to direct his own version of the show's popular and ever-changing intro. According to sources, Banksy mailed in the storyboards, and the creative team carried out what was "allowed" to air. The result is an animated critique of pop culture's shameful underbelly. Fully approved or not, the Banksified version of the Simpsons intro definitely raises a few eyebrows!
Banksy?s Simpsons opening: a failed cultural critique?
Like pretty much everyone on Twitter Sunday night, I was excited that Banksy had done an intro for The Simpsons. Given that the show has for the last few years struggled to regain any sense of current cultural legitimacy, involving Banksy ? the noted British graffiti artist ? seemed like a legitimately cool idea, even ...
THE "ART" OF TRESPASSING
The founder's of NYC's Wooster Collective, Marc and Sara Schiller garnered the help of international art vagrant, Banksy, to complete the introduction of their new book, Trespass: A History of Uncommissioned Urban Art. The release covers illicit art from a large spectrum of creators. We're talking everything from 1970's L.A. gang tags, to obscure pieces by the late John Lennon, to modern-day artists like Os Gemeos, Shepard Fairey, and Krink. The book also dedicates a good portion to unpublished works by pioneer photographers and artists like Keith Haring, Martha Cooper, and Jean-Michael Basquiat.

Shot Dead in the Head's Banksy Publicity Stunt
Shot Dead in the Head is a purveyor of mainly English joke shirts, poking fun at pop culture and the sort of folks who pass as celebrities over there (I'm somewhat kidding. Somewhat). So you can imagine that they're probably having a bit of a hard time competing in such a crowded market, where sites like Snorg and Busted sell similar products at lower prices.And so they've decided to print some of Banksy's iconic work on t-shirts and sell them. It's really a brilliant plan in some ways. They've recognized that anything involved with Banksy is sure to bring publicity. And since his work isn't sold, there's a huge market for it. Best of all, since he is a mysterious figure, he's incredibly unlikely to sue for his share of the merchandise profits.To me, therein lies the problem. It's incredibly unfair to the artist to sell his work without his permission. And Shot Dead in the Head has decided on their own what the royalties are, rather than entering into negotiation to determ...

Banksy exhibition a success
London’s top attractions were outperformed by a distinctly down-at-heel venue. A temporary exhibition in an unlovely London tunnel described by one art critic, Shirley Dent, as ?Piss Alley?. During the Bank Holiday weekend, 9,500 people a day descended on Leake Street, near Waterloo Station, to see the Cans Festival, the subculture blockbuster of graffiti art organised ...
Banksy Hosts The Cans Festival
This bank holiday weekend in London saw one of the world's most famous street artists (and least likely corporate collaborators) host his own spray party thanks to help from Eurostar. Recent years have seen the worlds of mega-business and street art colliding with unprecedented frequency. Such collaborations more often than not have predictably disastrous results (Kellog's streetwear anyone?) but sometimes they yield happy consequences. A prime example of how to do it right was the 2006 11 Spring Street project in New York, which saw several stories of prime real estate in Soho covered in graffiti by street artists from all over the world. Opened up to the public for one weekend before the developers moved in, the project was a bang-up success drawing crowds numbering in the thousands. Banksy took on the idea by inviting artists to join him in London for The Cans Festival stencil party, this time not in a building but in a tunnel once used by taxis before the Eurostar terminal ...

New Banksy exhibition

Tunnel becomes Banksy art exhibit
The BBC wrote today: A disused road tunnel in south London has been turned into a giant exhibition space by graffiti artist Banksy. Murals in the Bristol artist’s famous stencil style appear with work by 29 other artists in a half-mile stretch of the tunnel in Leake Street, Waterloo. Images of Madonna kissing Britney Spears and a hoodie appear alongside installations of crashed cars. People can add their own stencil work to the tunnel walls in a three-day exhibition, opening on Saturday. Reclusive artist Banksy kept the tunnel’s location secret until Friday morning. ‘Filth pit’ He said the exhibition, known as the Cans Festival, aimed to “transform a dark forgotten filth pit” into “an oasis of beautiful art”. “I’ve always felt anyone with a paint can should have as much say in how our cities look as architects and ad men,” Banksy said. The installations will be removed after the event but Banksy said he hoped the ...

El olvido, Benjamin Franklin... y Banksy
Si no quieres perderte en el olvido tan pronto como estés muerto y corrompido, escribe cosas dignas de leerse, o haz cosas dignas de escribirse.Benjamin FranklinNo creais que voy a hablar sobre los blogs, aunque la vigencia de algunos post dan que pensar sobre lo que realmente perduran las palabras en la red. El caso es que esta frase me hizo un eco de que las palabras de determinados artistas como Banksy han dejado una marca tal, que cuando se le atribuye una pintada, esta es elevada a la categoria de noticia: Banksy critica al Gran Hermano.Cuando estuve en Berlin, me sorprendió la gran cantidad de graffitis, y que muchos iban más allá del mensaje o simple vandalismo a tratar de ser obras de arte expuestas en un museo de caracter gratuito. Buceando en la red veo que otras ciudades como Londres o Sao Paulo deben de estar repletas, y unos cuantos grupos en Flickr reflejan dicha realidad, como el grupo London graffiti, del que he extraído la siguiente imagen.Un simple cambio de mental...

Banksy strikes again ...
Once again, graffiti artist Banksy has aesthetically liberated a patch of cement in downtown London. According to the Sydney Herald, Banksy created the image (of a child on a ladder and the message) on a post office wall in downtown London after constructing three stories of scaffolding and hiding the process with plastic tarps. The whole event was a captured on closed circuit television (CCTV), but Banksy was not.

Banksy on the auction block ? what does this mean for street art?
When the eBay auction for Banksy?s latest mural closed, the winning bid was a whopping £208,100 (approx. $400,000). The wall in question, located on Portobello Road in West London, belonged to Luti Fagbenle. He was quoted as having said that he couldn?t ?really justify owning a piece of art worth as much as it is,? so he sold it. The price did not include the removal of the piece, or the replacement of a graffiti-free wall. This event falls only weeks before the world?s first ever Urban Art auction at Bonhams Fine Art Auctioneers on February 5th. I?ve been mulling over the coming together of these two events, and can?t help but see 2008 as a pivotal and defining year for street art. Only I?m not sure if I should be excited or concerned. The underlying beauty of street art is its organic and transient properties. Works live and die at the hand of other artists, or the authorities who fail to see its inherent worth. But when inherent worth becomes associated with monetary worth, the...
Beyond Banksy: artists are finding practical paths to change
In a piece for the New Statesman, veteran political artist Peter Kennard believes we are living through "an exciting time for political art"?and I'm definitely not one to disagree. While Banksy continues to grab the headlines, Kennard argues he's just the poster boy for a increasingly influential movement of artists whose political commitments are communicated on canvas, in clay, and in the case of Santa's Ghetto, on 425 miles of concrete wall that imprisons Palestinians in their own land. Sticking up a poster or painting the Separation Wall in the West Bank might sound inconsequential, but these are highly practical ways to help, in contrast to the intellectual interventions prevalent in much contemporary art. They contribute to a town and a people that are having their lifeblood strangled out of them. In this context, it is important that the work communicates directly to the Palestinian people. While there has been a move to take on contemporary issues in a direct way in the...

Banksy wall could fetch Â£200,000
A businessman is hoping to make over Â£200,000 by selling a wall which was painted on by graffiti artist Banksy. The Banksy artwork was painted in daylight behind a screen Â The graffiti, on the side of a media production firm’s base on west London’s Portobello Road, shows a painter finishing off the word “Banksy”. Company owner Luti Fagbenle covered it with plastic and put the wall on an internet auction site. “I wanted to keep it, but maintaining it against the weather became a full time job,” he said. Scaffolding appeared one Sunday morning in September outside Mr Fagbenle post-production editing company, while the Portobello market was open. The “engineers” refused to say what it was for. A few hours later the scaffolding was removed, revealing Banksy’s work. Banksy painted on and around the Israeli security wall last year The reclusive artist has refused to comment on the sale, but a repres...

How the profit of Banksy was finally recognised
In the name of Christian forgiveness, Bethlehem residents are resurrecting a piece of graffiti by the British street artist Banksy after a misunderstanding left his artwork covered in white paint. Banksyâ€™s Bethlehem graffiti was meant to promote tourism but Palestinian residents had difficulty with the satirical images. Just before Christmas a small group of incensed locals painted over a Banksy image of a soldier asking a donkey for identification papers in the belief that it compared Palestinians to donkeys. Word soon spread that Banksy had intended to convey the plight of the Palestinians in Bethlehem, whose city is encircled by the separation barrier and Israeli military checkpoints â€“ and that the image could be worth thousands of pounds. Residents are now trying to restore it by using paint removers and scrapers to peel back the white paint and reveal the original piece. â€œWe are working to bring back the art in the Christmas spirit of forgiveness and turning the other ch...

Bethlehem banks on Banksy to boost tourism
In a creative bid to boost Bethlehem's sagging economy, Banksy has brought his seasonal "Santa's Ghetto" exhibition to this Palestinian town that has seen few tourists in recent years. The infamous stencil artist joined several others in creating over a dozen works on the concrete wall surrounding the town, turning a hated symbol of Israeli occupation into an massive open air art gallery. Another dozen or so works are on display in a former chicken shop in Manger Square. In more peaceful years more than 100,000 tourists would pour into Bethlehem during the holidays. Last year the town saw a mere tenth of the traffic. Having visited Bethlehem in December a few years back I can personally attest to the recent drought of visitors. With over 70 percent of the workforce depending on tourism, signs of a wounded economy are everywhere. ?You wouldn?t worry about Christmas becoming too commercial in Bethlehem ? they couldn?t afford it. There?s more festive lights in the window of your ...
"Whilst others spray their names, Banksy paints pictures, pictures that have made Banksy a household name. He is the most controversial and downright interesting graffiti artist at large in the UK today and the chances are that you have already heard of, or seen some of his work, smiled and moved on. Variously described as a "guerrilla artist", an "art terrorist" or - by those of a more prosaic turn of phrase - as a "prankster" Banksy is someone for whom celebrity is anathema. So much so that he has never let the world know his real name - and he has never even posed for a photograph." Today is the opening in Chelsea, and it will run through December 29th.
