Transcript

  • 1. Banksy is a British artist who was born in 1974 and was raised in Bristol, England.
  • 2. Banksy has recognizable work on walls, bridges, tunnels and railway cars from London to New York and has done various gallery showings.
  • 3. Much of his work can be found on his website http://www.banksy.co.uk.
  • 4. Banksy began his graffiti art in the free hand writing style but discovered that stenciling was his true medium. A stencil is a thin sheet of material, such as paper, plastic, or metal, with letters or a design cut from it, used to produce the letters or design on an underlying surface by applying pigment through the cut-out holes in the material. The key advantage of a stencil is that it can be reused to repeatedly and rapidly produce the same letters or design.
  • 5. Banksy’ s work is often political in nature.
  • 6. He has stated that he likes the idea that stencils have been used to start revolutions and to stop wars.

  • 10. Some of his quotations ……. “A lot of mothers will do anything for their children, except let them be themselves.” “The greatest crimes in the world are not committed by people breaking the rules but by people following the rules. It's people who follow orders that drop bombs and massacre villages” “There are four basic human needs; food, sleep, sex and revenge.” “Graffiti is one of the few tools you have if you have almost nothing. And even if you don't come up with a picture to cure world poverty you can make someone smile while they're having a piss.” “A lot of people never use their initiative because no-one told them to.”
