The Death of Banksy

The Death of Banksy | Street Protest Art | Scoop.it

Can Banksy die? I’ve got no doubt that the man who was writing the name Banksy on Bristol’s walls in the 1990′s can and will, at some point, die. That’s not what I’m wondering though.

UK-based graffiti artist Banksy uses his street art as social commentary. His thought-provoking work has been extensively shared around the web and brought the anonymous Brit notoriety, even though no one knows his true identity.

Tumblr blog Made By ABVH was inspired by the art of Banksy and produced a series of GIFs that animated his work.

Tim Wood: "Ban­sky as most of us have seen, is the mas­ter of rich sto­ry­telling. Chang­ing the mes­sag­ing of some­thing we are used to see­ing makes Banksy’s brand voice ever so cre­ative and powerful."

Russia's Banksy does it for the motherland

Russia's Banksy does it for the motherland | Street Protest Art | Scoop.it

Decorating the walls of Moscow with politically fuelled graffiti isn't met with quite the same admiration as it is in the UK, yet an artist known only as P183 has made a name for himself by capturing the zeitgeist of modern-day Russia in his work.

P183's portfolio includes a sprawling mural of a masked protester holding a flare, a CCTV camera fitted with machine guns and a cardboard cut-out of a young girl hanging baubles on a barbed-wire fence. After gaining notoriety when photographs of his art got picked up around the world, he is now preparing a new series that will be unveiled around the Moscow streets soon.

Dubbed the Russian Banksy, or "Bankski", his art resembles the world's best-known street artist, although P183 insists he has never tried to imitate the Bristolian. Speaking from Moscow over Skype, dressed in his usual black garb and balaclava, he says: "I fully understand that we both have a common cause, but I never sought to emulate him or anyone else. I use the songs of people such as Yegor Letov and Konstantin Kinchev for inspiration – not public figures."

P183 first began writing poems at the age of 11 on the Tsoi Wall in Moscow, which pays tribute to Soviet musician Viktor Tsoi. Then as he got older, he began to spray murals elsewhere in the city. Lately he has set up guerrilla installations, including a giant fork shovelling industrial piping that looks like a plate of spaghetti.

As with most street artists, P183's canvas is all too soon covered with grey paint by the authorities. "The city government is categorically against street art, so any wall drawings are painted over. Graffiti with political meaning and social subtext are painted over especially fast," he says.

At the mere mention of this week's Russian election, he scowls. "I'm not going to talk about Putin, it's too much. In our country, there is a very heavy atmosphere. People are closed-minded, and money is the most important thing. Our state does not support creativity. To me, street art is a tool to send thoughts to people."

His motivation remains "to have a strong, educated and cultured homeland". If photographers continue to get to his work before the authorities, he may help to achieve just that.

Gray Ghost: Banksy’s Arch-Nemesis or Anti-Street Artist? | WebUrbanist

Gray Ghost: Banksy’s Arch-Nemesis or Anti-Street Artist? | WebUrbanist | Street Protest Art | Scoop.it

The Gray Ghost haunts New Orleans with a vengeance, adding his own Dada-esque anti-art to walls everywhere, graying out graffiti with his own incidentally artistic approach. Paradox and contradiction abound in the curious work of this vigilante painter.

He tackles vapid political slogans and badly-rendered lettering alike, foiling artists and anarchists while adding his own clear opinion to the mix. Just like taggers cover tags, he layers on meaning, weighing in with silent commentary … especially in his clashes with the infamous Banksy. Some love him for cleaning up the streets, others for adding a new kind of art to the mix, and still others hate him for defacing beautiful works by other artists.

“To bring this back into concrete terms: The Grey Ghost is only following the rules of “the street” construct, contesting with other street artists and graffiti writers for the use of the public space as a platform; it just so happens that his platform is the antithesis of form, color and message (thus becoming a message in and of itself).”

Morley is a street artist, similar in that regard to Hanksy, from Los Angeles - where I currently happen to live. If Hanksy is all about the puns, Morley is all about the writing. He is a pretty good one if you ask me.
