Banksy[1] Banksy[1] Presentation Transcript

    • Explore the work of Banksy.
    • Find another Graffiti / Urban artist who inspires you and create a research page about them in your sketchbook.
  •  
  • Who is ? Banksy was born in 1974 in Bristol. He trained as a butcher but became involved in graffiti in Bristol in the late 1980’s…...
  • “ I started off painting graffiti in the classic New York style you use when you listen to too much hip hop as a kid…….
  • ..but I was never very good at it. As soon as I cut my first stencil, I could feel the power there…the efficiency of it is perfect”
  • His work is often witty and humorous and uses visual puns...
  •  
  • … .and is often political. Do you recognise this wall?
  •  
  • … ..feature heavily in Banksy’s work… Rats…
  •  
  • HIS WORK OFTEN GETS INTO THE PAPERS..
  • If you grow up in a town where they don’t have subway trains you have to find somewhere else to graffiti… … it’s not as easy as it sounds because most subway train drivers don’t wander around with shotguns”
  • Crude oils “ If you want to survive as a graffiti writer when you go indoors, your only option is to carry on painting over things that don’t belong to you there either”
  • Banksy visits museums and art galleries to place his own ‘exhibits’ among the art and artefacts to see how long it is before people notice..
  • “ Some people become cops because they want to make the world a better place. Some people become vandals because they want to make the world a better looking place” Banksy “Wall and Piece” 2005
