Banksy

wall-and-pieceFor my birthday today my precious wife bought me a book that I was really keen to get my hands on. Wall and Piece is a collection of art from the provocative genius of street art – the enigma that is Banksy. While not all of his stuff is exactly wholesome, I don’t know of any other artist quite like Banksy – a street artist for sure, but not your classic graffiti painter. Banksy has an ability to create works of sheer brilliance that will always provoke a repsonse – sometimes anger, sometimes laughter, sometimes empathy, sometimes conviction and sometimes awe! As if that wasn’t enough, the fact that no one actually knows who he is makes him even more intriguing.

Anyway, I’ve decided that from now on (at least for a little while) I’m going to showcase a different piece of Banksy art each week. Hope you enjoy it. Feel free to comment should you feel fit.

Because it’s my birthday, let’s start with a light-hearted one…
