good friends dont let u do stupid things..alone
Banksy как ответ косному искусству

Пресса окрестила его «самым разыскиваемым человеком в мире искусства». Его произведения бывали в самых престижных галереях мира, хотя никто из музейных деятелей их не заказывал. Он расписал «стену плача», разделяющую Израиль и Палестину. Он называет себя «арт-террорист Banksy» и является самым легендарным уличным художником на планете, а интернет стонет в ожидании его новых работ, каждая из которых тут же становится объектом внимания общественности.

Так он работает

The 2010 TIME 100

good friends dont let u do stupid things..alone
In our annual TIME 100 issue we name the people who most affect our world


Many people recoil at the thought of a guy in a hoodie with a spray-paint can and something to say. Others foam at the mouth when they see the same guy's artwork auctioned off for hundreds of thousands of dollars. Banksy just laughs at all of it. He has a gift: an ability to make almost anyone very uncomfortable. He doesn't ignore boundaries; he crosses them to prove their irrelevance.

People usually see art as an abstract emotional vehicle, lacking the direct impact of language. Banksy paints over the line between aesthetics and language, then stealthily repaints it in the unlikeliest of places. His works, whether he stencils them on the streets, sells them in exhibitions or hangs them in museums on the sly, are filled with wit and metaphors that transcend language barriers.

Banksy's work embodies everything I like about art. It's accessible, public, not locked away. He makes social and political statements with a sense of humor. His latest exploit is Exit Through the Gift Shop, a film about a filmmaker who left off making a film about Banksy to become an art star himself. It sums up the art world perfectly — the authentic intertwined with the absurd.
