Happy Mother’s Day!
For those you of who are familiar with the “street artist” Banksy – this is just one of his many painting’s which mysteriously appear on a building – one of many found around the world.
Although there are many theories as to who exactly Banksy is, no one knows exactly who the artist is. Banksy is an anonymous England-based graffiti artist, political activist and film director of unverified identity. His street art ranges from subversive epigrams combining dark humor, or satirical. A graffiti artist who paints in a distinctive stenciling technique using only spray paints, mimicking the early days of graffiti artists with their spray can paints.
About 2 years ago I was in the City (NY) with my sons; as we left the East Village Bar, walking about 2 blocks – my son (who is also a street artist) immediately recognized one of Banksy’s work on the side of a building. It is amazing as he paints these life size works of art which no one every sees him doing. Of course my son took many pictures of this work.
There exists many theories as to who exactly Banksy is – which will have to be another article! Along with an upcoming article of my own son’s art work – he recently sold some of his work at Comicon NY the past two years, and has some of his paintings hanging in Gallery’s in the City – follow #reso914.
