What a phenomenal story! A uniquely talented artist going by the name “Banksy” walked into the four largest museums in New York City and proceeded to exhibit his own works – simply a case of sticking them on the wall, really. Fantastic. Apparently two of the works have been removed, but the other two remain on display.
I strongly believe South African artists should consider this option – the levels of security should be far lower here than in the top New York galleries.
The photos are here. They are a must see.
Banksy’s work – at least the part I have browsed on his website – is eye-opening, thought provoking, and visually stimulating to say the least. It is a brilliant form of social commentary – I especially enjoy the graffiti pieces. Take a look and enjoy.
