Art News: Banksy in Africa





Who/ what is Banksy? Some suggest he is a mysterious artist; others say it is a group that performs street-art. One thing's for sure, though, Banksy's creativity and designs are un-mistakable, as are the unlikely places he/it chooses and the way he/ it challenges everything and everyone. For instance, in Mali someone noticed some graffiti art that seems to match a style we are already familiar with.

To see Banksy's new work in London, go to Obvious

  4. That hunting piece is absolutely amazing! The use of the "found art" of the deteriorating wall is brilliant, turning an improbable mess into something of near-photographic realism...

    I'm blown away, and not leastly by your penchant for finding and sharing these astonishing works.

    Thank You! :)

  5. I'm glad you all enjoyed the latest from Banksy. He/she/it/they - in one word - fascinating and wonderful and enriching.

  6. Did you ever read about the time he spent sneaking into galleries to post his own work? My favorite was a fully armored fly he hung in the British Museum's Entomology area.
