Banksy

Wednesday, November 26, 2008

I was doing some Christmas shopping today at West Edmonton Mall when I walked in to Urban Outfitters to check out anything they had when I stumbled on this book about Banksy and his art. Banksy is a world famous graffiti artist that does many of his work in stencils but he also using slogans, stickers, and “street furniture”. He does many political work about current wars, government, and even about big name companies polluting the minds of people.

The people who truly deface our neighbourhoods are the companies that scrawl giant slogans across buildings and buses trying to make us feel inadequate unless we buy their stuff. They expect to be able to shout their message in your face from every available surface but you’re never allowed to answer back. Well, they started the fight and the wall is the weapon of choice to hit them back.

– Banksy

He is one of my favourite artists right now. I do recommend getting this book to anyone who loves graffiti or art in general.
