‘Russian Banksy’ dies: 'Expressing your opinion is form of civil defense' — RT News

‘Russian Banksy’ dies: 'Expressing your opinion is form of civil defense' — RT News | I Love Street Art | Scoop.it

His ‘code name’ could be mistaken for the name of a rifle: P183. The covert graffiti artist, often referred to as ‘the Russian Banksy’, has died. Pavel won recognition as the creator of provocative art works scattered across Moscow.

P183 went international after several British, American and French dailies published photographs of his works, saying his ‘guerilla’ tactics of painting street murals were similar to those used by iconic British nonconformist Banksy.

However, P183 didn’t take the comparison as a compliment, noting he had been shaping his signature style for the past 14 years.

The mysterious figure, allegedly in his late 20s, preferred to cover his tracks and hide his face with a black balaclava to remain anonymous. A can of spray paint never failed him, helping the up-and-coming artist share his ideas with those who kept their eyes wide open.

“Like poets who put their thoughts and reflections onto paper, I want mine to be heard,” Pavel explained in an interview with RT last year. “With my work, I want to communicate certain ideas to people.”

Last April, Pavel pulled off his most daring stunt, which provoked panic among the city’s police force.

An area in an industrial zone in Moscow was cordoned off and a bomb disposal team was called in after a report came in of a suspicious object underneath a railway bridge.

Much to everybody’s surprise, instead of a bomb the police detected a model of a space invader from the popular 80s arcade video game.

Pavel told RT that his project was called “a traffic jam fighter.”

It featured a robot imitating the game by shooting passing cars with a red light laser. But no harm was caused to the cars or their drivers.

“Who could have possibly mistaken a two-meter-wide space invader for a bomb?” Pavel wondered. “What astonished me the most is that when media reported this, they had a picture of actual grenade next to the text. You’ve seen the reaction of the people in the video recorded – it made them laugh! No one was suspicious about this!” the artist told RT.

Many called Pavel a graffiti vandal. But with his pieces lasting more than a few days before being removed by street cleaners there was always more than meets the eye. Photographs often became the only way they could be captured for posterity.

The elusive artist studied communicative design at college. Abandoned buildings, bridges, schools and the Moscow Metro were his creative ‘playgrounds’.  

The artist often put freedom under the spotlight, as well as civil activism. One summer Pavel painted riot police on a Metro entrance, in a bid to relive the days of the 1991 attempted coup.

Shortly after the 2011 December's State Duma elections, which were wrought with claims of electoral fraud, he ventured into politics.

"Put simply, I want to teach people in this country to tell lies from the truth and to tell bad from good,” the artist told RT. “This is what our people still cannot do.”

“Expressing your opinion is a form of civil defense,” the artist believed.

Call for Artists: International Day of Peasant’s Struggle

Call for Artists: International Day of Peasant’s Struggle | I Love Street Art | Scoop.it

On Wednesday 17th of April Street Art Belgium and Vétérinaires Sans Frontières Belgium (member of VSF Europe) will organize a graffiti happening at the Grasmarkt in Brussels from 10AM to 6PM. Ten artists will be invited to participate in an art battle to shed light on climate change and food security in Africa. At the end of the day, a photo will be taken of all the panels, and will be sent to an international jury.

For the good cause

VSF Belgium is an international non-profit association who represents an outstanding actor in the field of development cooperation, when it comes to animal production and welfare in the Global South. VSF Belgium is particularly concerned about climate change and its consequences on small-scale livestock farmers, which are part of the solution in terms of mitigation measures, but more importantly, the first victims of the on-going climate catastrophe, and therefore a key-element of all sort of mitigation strategy.

GRAFFITI HAPPENING

Each participating artist will be provided a wooden panel (dimensions to be confirmed) with a theme-based stencil drawn on it (representing a zebu cow), as well as a spray paint kit of 50 euros. It is up to them to translate the message onto the canvas according to their own interpretation. The same event will take place in Italy, France and the Czech Republic, organized by the European VSF colleagues and partners in Rome, Lyon and Brno. Lunch and drinks will also be provided for the artists involved...

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, November 18, 2013 4:51 AM

While it is true that people still deface buildings and bridges with squiggles that could hardly be called art, a good portion of it is now an innovative, creative expression of people worldwide that deserves a new title: Street Art. - See more at: http://artsnapper.com/street-art-worldwide-phenomenon/#sthash.9mwVsy06.dpuf
