    Want to see a brilliant anarchist artist at work?
    go to
    banksy.co.uk
    in his outdoor gallery click the little insets to the right of the main picture
    get the ones where he painted the palestine wall
    actually risked his life to do it

    I have artist friends who do outdoor work like this.

    I'd love to but i lack the talent to say it the way they do.

    A message on a bridge, overpass, train car, wall, or sidewalk will say more to more people than anything photoshopped and put into a sig...

    Did u check out his site?
    I was walkin through Paris (France) and saw some of his work and I was
    totally blown away by it. - Tiny little soldiers and stuff all going to a revolution - everywhere round paris - also saw some of his work in Barcelona
    He comes from Bristol in the UK and a lot of his work is in the area
    I work in - down the East-end of London.
    He did the cover for the last Blur album
    He is really very imaginative and has a good sense of what will make people think a lot about issues - he says in one picture what a lot of people say in a whole book

    Beautifully, fantastically, unrestrained truth.

    will look into him
    have you got anyone like Banksy in the states?

    I emailed Banksy, once and told him that I loved his work and that I wished I could see some in the area I live - then(and I dont know how he managed it cuz its an immense part of london)
    about 2 weeks later I walk 100 yards to the top of the road and there it is
    a full-on Banksy - I will never know how he knew which road I lived in - coulda
    been coincidence but I think he has very clever technicians working with him - computer experts - a lot of his stencils are done on very expensive computers and cutting machines that cost a fortune, others of his drawings are freehand. You can order Banksy stensils and spray your own apparently.
     
  6. The vids are cool, I wonder how old he is
