This is Thierry’s (Mr. Brainwash to you) Tumblr. It’s cool but… is he really going to work with David Guetta!? I’d even chose One Direction over David Guetta. Come on Thierry, sort it out. You’re embarrassing me!
Here’s the first of my “Olypmics” pieces. I’ve done four in all - some have been found already, and some haven’t. I’ll be revealing them all here on Tumblr.
The Olympics is a bit of an odd one isn’t it? I was rubbish at sports as a lad, always picked last for the teams. One time I forgot my PE kit and Mr. Sandy made me play in my tight white y-fronts.
Everyone laughed and called me pantsman, although the joke was on them a couple of years later when he got done for some kind of incident that happened when he was still a Scoutmaster. Bit of an odd bloke that one.
I do love Mr. Brainwash - or Thierry as his friends call him. Filming him for my little film project “Exit through the Gift Shop” was a lot of fun!
I quite like this Tumblr as well - I’m actually more a pie-and-a-pint man myself so I won’t be going to any of these cool bars, but their taste in art is clearly very good.
Mr. Brainwash hardly needs an introduction. Rumours and contradictions swirl around his background, history and creative process, and many believe he’s a hoax figure, a barbed lampoon aimed at the pretentious heart of art world’s commodification of graffiti.
Whether or not that’s true…
This wasn’t me. I think this chap might be faking my work as a publicity stunt for his new gallery, but that’s fine. The work he’s doing with that Oriental - am I allowed to say Oriental? You never know these days. Anyway, the work he’s doing with that Chinese feller is quite nice, always good to see artists from other cultures getting some support in the United Kingdom of Bonus! (I’m referring to banker’s bonuses of course).
Poor Robin. He never “came forward” (that’s an unfortunate rumour), he was mistakenly “outed” by one of the dreadful tabloid newspapers we have over here. Probably the Mail, it really is the most awful load of rubbish.
Anyway, I’m not him, and he’s not me. Since I’m Banksy that means he… isn’t Banksy. Nice and simple.
I painted this to make a subtle point - that not every piece of street art out there is a Banksy. Even though, it’s ironic because I am Banksy and so all the pieces that I paint actually are Banksys!
It gets a bit confusing. Other people are doing some good stuff though.
This Twitter feed isn’t me by the way, even though it’s called “Banksy Ideas”. I don’t think people should be allowed to take on other people’s identities like this. I’d report him if I wasn’t anonymous!
Some of the ideas on there aren’t bad, mind you. Might even copy a couple!
A lot of people are asking if this was me - it was! This actually isn’t anything political, I just say the opportunity for a bit of light comedy. Plus I genuinely do prefer a nice trim, the wife always keeps hers very neat. Not too much though, that’s a bit weird isn’t it, if it’s completely bare?
Literally just published it, take a look! If you can’t take criticism how can you take freedom?
P.s. it’s “you’re” in this context. You can’t write as many slogans as I do and not be anal about grammar!
Check again sailor! I’m not on Facebook or Twitter, Tumblr is very different to those sites. That’s why were here isn’t it?
I have a confession to make as well - I didn’t write my website, I’m heavily dyslexic so I got my Pest Control team to do that. Can I just say though - I know you’re suspicious and mistrustful because you’re a big fan so I’m not offended, I just really appreciate your support.
