"Area grandmother comes forward as Banksy" - The Onion -
The Onion do make me laugh, I don’t know how I’ve never seen this before. Cracks me up proper.
For the record, I’m male and I don’t have any grandchildren… yet.
Someone sent this to me - someone got a tattoo of some of my work!
Has anyone else out there got a Banksy tattoo? Send it in to me and I’ll do a series on them. Might even do a stencil, of someone with a tattoo, of a stencil. Mental.
So apparently there’s this guy: http://madebyabvh.tumblr.com/ and he makes animated gifs of my work!
Now, I like my work, and I like animated gifs, so this really appeals to me. Wish I’d though of it myself to be honest. Nice work lad.
Anonymous asked: are you really bansky? lol just wondering
Anonymous asked: Well i'm sure you're not the real Banksy but on the off chance you are id like to say something. What happened man. I read somewhere you used to be a real graffer. Why'd you sell out and cash in on this stencil/street art bullshit. Fuck you. Team Robbo. Oh and stop biting off Blek, if you're gonna sell out at least get your own style. Twat.
17daysofrain asked: Hello :) I'm a huge fan of your work! i was wondering something though. Last year i watched exit through the gift shop in an art class and we discussed it and i brought up this question. Was it purely a project of yours revealing the commercialization of art today or a true documentary of Thierry Guetta aka Mr. Brainwash?
I believe that truth is in the eye of the beholder - the works mean whatever you want them to mean. Unless you want them to mean something which I really don’t like, in which case I’ll have to take it back!
piecesof-thepeoplewelove asked: Any posibillities for you to come and meet mexico and maybe make a graffiti? :D
I’d love to. I know a couple of Mexicans who are very handy with a paintbrush - very hardworking guys and they do some lovely work in bathrooms. Maybe I’ll bring the wife out for a sunny getaway!
This is exactly what it looks like - a bloke throwing a javelin, but instead of a javelin it’s a missile. What’s funny is that there is actually a kind of missle called a javelin… however this isn’t one. This is a commentary on the fact that the British government has put missiles on tower blocks in East London.
However… it’s also got a deeper meaning. Can you guess what it is?
