#28 The result of loosing that Jenga game could be detrimental to your health.
Art Graffiti will always be original, creative, artistic and show the truest form of a free person.
It is not art, it is vandalism. They are inconsiderate jerks damaging other people's property, while feeling artsy. Pathetic.
“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.”
We heard you the first time there, buddy
Dude, considering the FUCKING DUMPS those locations were in the first place, it's an improvement and adds to the value of the property if properly promoted.
no it doesn't add value. It add cost to fix it. There are a lot of "Banksy" wanna-be's out there. And who the hell is he (Banksy") so say what's right or wrong to vandalize someones property. Those places aren't dumps, they're other people's property.
Thom; it's expression of people's inner feelings, and are therefore just as
expressive, and even more raw, than polished works of art. Some of these people's graffiti & art are the only way their voices can be heard.
I read that in Van Driessen's voice.
Can I punch you in the face to express my inner feelings? It's the only way my voice can be heard.
Your first comment posted. Thanks for playing.
As opposed to the giant glowing fucking M that I have to look at…? Light pollution in my opinion, fully legal though. I'm certainly not a graffiti artist, and I would be livid if somebody painted shit on the side of my house. But in a commercial area, creativity is a welcome intrusion on a plain brick wall.
So true, someone has to clean it up, and someone’s expense
i drive past this in London almost every day, love it
I agree with thom, it is vandalism, plain and simple. While I think these are extremely well done, it is still defacing someone else's property. In some cities there are designated areas for street art and I think it's a good idea. It gives street artists a place to legally do it.
"The people who truly deface our neighbourhoods are the companies that scrawl their giant slogans across buildings and buses trying to make us feel inadequate unless we buy their stuff." ~ Banksy
yea, damn corporations, owning things and putting their logo on them. I like putting unicorn stickers on everyone else's car, 'cause they make me feel inadequate.
So that is where that fucking sticker came from.
#8 Its Friday in OZ, you aint got no job, and you aint got shit to do.
No wonder she saw flying monkeys.
#28 – 3D + Street Art = Win
I don't, I bet the pay is terrible…
#13 #14 #22
These are actually kinda cool
Why do people assume we want to see your perception of art outside on building, bridges, etc…
becuase life is short
Why do people assume we want to see your perception of commentary on the internet….
I find #17 to be the most emotionally moving out of all of these. No political statement, no special effects, just truly beautiful art.
love these posts. keep it up chive.
#11 San Francisco Haight St !!
It's Page and Oak
Love to hire one to paint my studio….
#1 What is it?
#30 I'm going to surprise the wife and have this painted on the wall above our bed.
I find these cheap Banksy knockoffs, rather shallow and pedantic……..#9
I find your use of the word "pedantic" to be… pedantic.
Good eye, Touche'!! Hahaha!
That is an actual Banksy, it's on his website
BANSKY BANSKY BANSKY! am i cool yet?
No; you're not cool unless you've seen "Exit Through the Gift Shop".
I agree…the Banksy glorification seems oddly "Hipster" to me.
While some of these images can truly be considered art, and some have an important social or political message, I personally find it very difficult to see them as anything other than vandalism. Unless, of course, the property owner consented to the installation — but where's the fun in that?.
The cost to the public to clean up after these vandals outweighs, in many cases, the cleverness or importance of any message that they're attempting to convey.
I like #28 simple yet full of detail
Again, yadda yadda yadda, hate people with talent
I'm assuming that these will soon appear on a Chive t-shirt and the artist will be compensated as usual.
