Banksy in New York, Day 20: Upper West Side

October 20, 2013

Christopher Jobson

Banksy paid a visit to the Upper West Side for the 20th day in his Better Out than In residency in New York. The plain black stencil depicts a small boy holding a giant hammer, effectively turning an outdoor fire alarm into an impromptu high striker game….

Banksy Has Unannounced Art Sale with Genuine Signed Canvases in Central Park, Sells Almost Nothing

October 13, 2013

Christopher Jobson

For his 13th day in New York, Banksy pulled a fantastic prank on unsuspecting passersby in Central Park yesterday by setting up an unannounced art stall with dozens of 100% original signed canvases. In a world where copies of unlicensed Banksy works are available for a dime a dozen, it’s not inconceivable for somebody to peddle cheap knockoffs for $60 apiece. To further camouflage the artwork the booth was labeled simply “SPRAY…

October 1, 2013

July 23, 2012

Christopher Jobson

It looks like a potential crackdown on graffiti artists prior to the 2012 Olympics in London didn’t involve the world’s most famous street artist. Two new pieces by Banksy were posted to his website this morning featuring his personal take on the games. I feel the same as Bobby over at The Fox is Black in hoping there’s more to come. Update: There’s a great article over at The Atlantic Wire about Banksy and the politics…

Ballerina by Banksy

May 25, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Banksy recently updated his website with a number of new works that have been making the rounds the last day or so. My favorite new artwork is this simple piece depicting a spray-painted ballerina delicately traversing the string on the back of a picture frame like a tightrope. What fun and thoughtful execution. (via the fox is black)…

Banksy Does Origami

March 21, 2012

Christopher Jobson

…A new Banksy piece popped up yesterday in the UK featuring an adeptly stenciled origami crane snagging a goldfish from a small canal. While the work has yet to appear on the artist’s website for positive verification, Street Art News seems to think it’s the real deal. Photos by the lonely villein. (via juxtapoz)…
