Animated Banksy by artist ABVH.

Leah Broon's insight:

Banksy’s lauded (and controversial) New York residency has come to an end, but you can enjoy the British graffiti artist’s work in endlessly animated form thanks to these GIFs from artist ABVH — which we spotted on Beautiful Decay. Several of Banksy’s iconic pieces have been given new life — and the looping format really suits the street artist’s absurdist imagery.

MTO, street artist.

His mother calls him Mateo but most of the world knows the mysterious street artist whose extraordinary work you see here as MTO.
Leah Broon's insight:

French born but Berlin based, MTO’s work is characterized by incredibly detailed renditions of über cool actors and musicians with a dash of red as his signature or around his work as a signifier of its boundaries.

 

Although his work is often extremely large – up to two meters high and wide (and often much, much larger) it usually only takes him around five hours to create one of his smaller works. The larger ones can take up to a week but even that amount of time seems small when the results are viewed. One can only then imagine the mental preparation that goes in to this meticulous work.
