Banksy woz 'ere:

(viewed 2235 times)
Bookmark and Share
on the morning of the "I'll tell you a story..." exhibition, Dhamaka and
I went out on the bikes to see how many of Banksy's "works" we could
find around the East, that weren't already cut, jigsawed, or chiseled
out of the walls and put onto ebaY (or been "buffed" by the authorities).

Hoxton, Hackney & down to Brick Lane...but *this* is all we found.
heresy, i tell you.

it's ironic really, I mean he is a great artist and always was (one of my personal favourite artists of all time), but the whole point to his early works was that they were public, and now due to his own success, they're being removed and sold on ebay. He found it hard enough "selling out" and making purchasable art in the first place, that must just make him want to give up all together.

even if it increased the value of your building, Mandy?

pink indeed Caine!

nige says:

heheh Mandy. Joe's right, but i guess with his popularity, it was always going to happen. and who knows, despite Banksy's manifesto, we all get older, and most of us crave the comforts that money can buy, so maybe this is what he wanted all along...

Fantastic!!!! :D

I think mine are "Crucifixion?" "Err, no, freedom actually" "Only joking", "You lucky lucky bastard, what I'd give to be spat at in the face" and "Blessed are the big noses" :D

If Carlsberg did threads to Moblog posts this'd be the one.

Nige the pics are good but the metamorphosis from Banksy to The Life of Brian tops it for me!

How come that the entire wall, including the part where the suppossed art was taken from is all pink, but the end of the tag is still there. If the art was taken and then the wall painted pink surely the tag would have been painted over? Yours Confused

Dhamaka says:

what kind of idjut takes away the art and not the signature's what I'd like to know..

Sprocket says:

I'm with Mouse on the whole Pink confusion.

However, can't believe people have the gall to remove half a wall.
