Who is Bansky?

edited October 2008 in Art!
I tripped over this while perusing the interwebs. I realized that I'd seen some of this guy's work before, but I didn't know just how much he'd produced or how (in)famous he was. Here's a link to a pretty comprehensive article on him, and a pic.

    I suggest you take a look at his book "Wall and Peace", it's a pretty comprehensive look at what he's done. It would be nice if England had legalized graffiti like parts of Europe do.
    Anyone have any graffiti they'd like to discuss?

  • There are places around this city who sell canvas prints of Banksy's work, and they claim copyright not over the work, but over the pictures they supposedly took of the work. I've been toying with the idea of Grassing them to Banksy via his website, but on the flip side, I want to get something cool to hang on my wall first.
  • Never thought people around here would be into graffiti.

    Well, to be fair, these are some pretty high quality canvas prints - And I do not have the money or tools to make my own, even if I got someone else to print one up.

    Rasterbator + Paper --> Design
    Cardboard + Design + Stanley knife --> Template
    Template + Paint + Wall --> Art

    Oh, if you just want the picture:
    Rasterbator + Paper + Bluetack/Tape --> ???? --> Underpants --> Profit

  • C'mon:

    -transparency film about $10 a box
    -Xacto Knife < $5
    -Can of spray Paint < $1
    -Pre-Stretched Canvas < $6 (depending on size)
    -Some printer paper and ink to print out design = almost free
    -A bit of spare time

    Its less than $25 and most of the material is reusable. I would recommend a respirator (not a dust mask) if your work space is anything less than open space (thats like $35)
  • I would recommend a respirator regardless. Lungs ain't cheap.

    I know, I also use latex gloves and eye protection most of the time, but most people would think that's overkill.

    I'm currently working on a rasterbated weighted companion cube to cover one of my dorm room walls. Suffice to say, it will be awesome.

    Dang, I hadn't thought about that one yet. I rasterbated the full version of my avatar. :D Look at all the pretty dots. Have yet to print and tape it though. But now I'm tempted to find the biggest and most awesome wallpaper I have and rasterbate that to epic size.

    I’ve used this program before too. But I really don’t like this technique. Rasterbator makes posters with big dots. Now I use this poster creator to print big images. It doesn’t change the input image and print it with high quality.
