Artist of the Week: Banksy

July 10, 2010

                                                 ARTIST OF THE WEEK:  BANKSY

The mystery, the talent, the ongoing flurry of images on the internet: unknown graffiti artist BANKSY is my artist of the week.  It is summer, the restless youth and culture jamming literati alike are out with spray cans.  I wish it was all as good as BANKSY.  BANKSY has a specific style and a clarity of expression with a strong, graphic style, paired with the purpose of works that communicate social and political criticisms.  I particularly like the elaborate BANKSY piece shown below.

In honor of BANKSY and life in the big city, today is graffiti and street art week!  I will have several related posts.
