While in California for the west coast premier of Exit Through The Gift Shop, Banksy bombed  some parts of L.A. and two newly discovered walls in San Francisco .  The photo above which reads: “This’ll Look Nice When It’s Framed” shows Banksy poking fun at, what I’m gonna call “Banksy Wall Snatching’s”, around the world.

Farewell To The Geisha

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:

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.

But who knew Flickr users that walk around with roses were so grimy?  I did.
