Robin Gunningham? Maybe…

One Sunday morning I was watching the CBS Sunday Morning show and they did a profile on a rogue graffiti artist named Banksy.  The story blew me away for a lot of reasons, the main one being that the guy was flat-out an ace artist.  The fact that he had boiled the process down to something he could do in under 2 minutes, under the cover of darkness, anonymously, and make a statement was pretty great.  It’s really a fascinating story, the tale of the outlaw artist.  I’m sure plenty of people know who he is but they aren’t talking.  Except one guy, who Banksy evidently pissed off in Jamaica.  Regardless, the guy does some cool artwork, sometimes thoughtful, sometimes funny, sometimes downright mean.  I thought doing one of his pieces would be a fun change of speed.  I chose to do one of a cop searching Dorothy’s basket as Toto looks on.  There’s something hilarious and charming about it.  This one should go quick, not under two minutes but quick enough.  Cheers, Banksy.

  1. Hey, I don’t know if you’ve seen or heard of it since you posted this, but there is a great movie called Exit Through the Gift Shop. It was actually made by Banksy and his people and shows a lot of information on Banksy’s work and other street artist’s as well. It is well done and actually quite funny too! Great work though, glad I stumbled on it. I’m going through all of them now!

    1. I just watched that movie a couple weeks ago… It was great how Banksy turned the movie around to be about Mr. Brainwash. Very interesting and also good commentary on the art world at large.
