Here’s some footage of the Banksy’s documentary, ‘Exit Through The Gift Shop’ screening at the Berlin Film Festival. The highlight of the video is when the films narrator Rhys Ifans announces the tragic passing of Banksy (A joke of course) quote:
“I hate to be the bringer of bad news but sadly Banksy pasted away quietly in his sleep, last night… She was a beautiful 8 year old girl, who was very deft at climbing and very handy with her spray can.”
Recently street artist 2:12 put up this Geisha sign in Houston but sadly now it’s gone. It was lifted apparently by the person who added the rose, which wasn’t originally on the piece. On the blog site tx2twelve 2:12 posted this message:
“Passed down Westheimer today and found that a rose had been left on the Geisha sign. I posted the photo to Flickr and a couple hours later got this comment: (by) true short stories said: i put the rose there.then i went back the next day and took the sign.if you give a fuck let me know,ill do something about it.props by the way.“
Street art is fair game in my opinion, when you add something to a public space it can be easily taken away. That’s what makes street art priceless and unique you’re displaying art in an unconventional way in an unpredictable environment.
But who knew Flickr users that walk around with roses were so grimy? I did.
