Banksy comes to Cheltenham

Probably to do with being the home of GCHQ.

PARISIAN STREET ARTIST: LEVALET

While everyone raved on about Banksys’ NYC residency, I’d taken up following French Street Artist, Levalet. My friends keep sending me snapshots of his work around Paris, since then I’ve been finding his treasures through his website and from his followers on Instagram. His black & white wheat pastes are fresh and playful – interacting with their surroundings in a way that continues to amuse me the way Banksy did in the past.

Banksy’s “Better Out Than In” Week Two.

Banksy continued his New York City residency with several incredible pieces during the second week of his “Better Out Than In”, most notably his Central Park art stand:

On Saturday, unannounced, Banksy set up a stand with an older gentleman selling his signed work on the street for $60.00 dollars a piece and most people just ignored it - Just three people stopped during the entire day to buy pieces and one woman who bought two pieces only did so after haggling the price down to $30 each.  Another lucky gentleman from Chicago bought four pieces.

The scope of this single piece is rather large.  It’s a direct commentary against galleries selling Banksy’s work (not to mention entities selling Banksy’s work as knockoffs) and shows an entirely opposite desire among individuals for the mysterious artist’s work when taking away the price tag or media craziness that normally accompanies it.  (There would have been a riot had this art booth been announced beforehand).

But all in all Banksy only sold 8 pieces for a total of $420 dollars - An arguably large sum for any artist who knows how hard it can be to sell work day to day.

A few individuals decided to charge the large crowds that formed to view the work of art (And why not?):
