theCHIVE offices acquire their first Banksy (18 HQ Photos)

Before all the nay-sayers sound off about how it's wrong to take street art away from the streets, we could not agree more. However, the owner of the garage was replacing all of his garage doors in the first place and this piece was going to be trashed. The piece was located in Venice, CA. We plan on loaning it out to local modern art museums and galleries.

    The Garage looked better with all the art on it imo.

    Who are we to name an artist's painting for him?

    • Shawn

      I agree, I say if he didnt have a name on it, then just leave it nameless and give credit to the artist, seems lke the right thing to do…..nice save though Chive, good shit

    • Mikey WINS

      It would go against Banksy's style of guerrilla street art for someone to name his piece, keep it unnamed and let the Banksy magic live on.

    • disturbed

      Not like you could find him and ask him…

    • Pop. 6 Bil.

      We are the world damnit. If we want to name something then thats what we do

    • ralph

      • Paula

        Your comment sizzled my shit GTFO. If youre gonna fucking rag on someone try to at least come off a bit wittier. I do have to concur though- It's not your art to name, but since you some how feel entitled to do so- Douche Brigade is a perfect fit for these nut sacks. Where's youre fucking scarves homos?

        Kisses,

      Yeah? Well my DAD paints dolphins and other wonderful creatures AND he's even got a jacket with dolphins on them – he is super cool and no one knows who he is so how can you explain that screwface?

    • cawtney

      no, an artist becomes cool when HE'S proud of his work. people noticing how revolutionary or talented somebody is doesn't decide his/her artistic value.

  • yup
