Everybody Loves Bansky

September 22nd, 2006 by dru

Bansky is everywhere. For those of you not familiar Bansky, he is the mysterious guerrilla artist that’s brought you serveral popular news stories in the last few years. Some people like him, some people hate him. I think it depends on your defintion between what makes something a work of art and what makes something a prank. I think most people simply hate the fact that he makes you think about the difference between the two.

Some of this greatest hits:
Paris Hilton Targeted in CD Prank
Banksy Hits New York’s Most Famous Museums (All of Them)
Spray Can Prankster Tackles Israel’s Security Barrier
Artist Banksy Targets Disneyland
Natural History Museum Exhibits an Unnatural Specimen
Artist’s Cold Call Cuts Off Phone

Anyhow, he’s having a show in LA right now called, Barely Legal. It’s kind of a big deal for a couple of reasons, he’s from the UK, he takes a lot of potshots at western civilization, and he’s not well liked by a lot of powerful people. Either way, it’s interesting stuff.

3 Albums I’m Listening to:
The Modern Lovers - The Modern Lovers
Brian Eno - Here Come the Warm Jets
Iggy & the Stooges - Year of the Iguana
