Bansky Fever!















So I've been a fan of Bansky for awhile and he has recently been leaving his mark around San Francisco. Bansky is an anonymous British street artist, AKA Graffiti artist. He has a movie out now that was recently shown at Sundance (to those lucky, willing to wait fans). Its called, "Exit through the Gift Shop." Well, when I heard that there was a sighting, I had to go and check it out. I found the following Peace & Love on Commercial and Grant Avenue in Chinatown. Let me tell you that when I first saw it, it was like finding gold. My heart started pounding and I felt kinda frozen. I noticed that that there was some plastic covering the artwork to preserve it. Apparently, some of his other works in the city have been painted over. I hope not all of them!

  4. I am so jealous that Banksy is in your neck of the woods. I don't think he'll ever make it to Minneapolis.

  8. Banksy is a great artist. I remember last year when someone published a photo which was said to be him. Not sure if it really was him.
