The woman who won the bidding at the auction decided to go through with the purchase. The partially shredded work has been given a new title, Love is in the Bin, and it was authenticated by Banksy's authentication body Pest Control. Sotheby released a statement that said "Banksy didn't destroy an artwork in the auction, he created one," and called it "the first artwork in history to have been created live during an auction."
Banksy's book, Wall and Piece, is truly something that could be appreciated on many different levels. Captured in vibrant color in the pages of this hard cover book, Banksy's art evokes many feelings. Whether it be a chuckle at the Mona Lisa holding an RPG, awe at the modified oil paintings placed in various museums, or appreciation of the clever detail of his urban rats, this book has images that will make you laugh, think, and wonder "Is Banksy 'just' a graffiti artist or, more likely, a super-talented commentariat that uses spray paint as his primary medium?" I think anybody who appreciates art in general could appreciate this book and it's contents.
To showcase Sanford's rich and interesting history, the City of Sanford's Appearance Commission has guided the creation of several historical murals in downtown Sanford and Jonesboro. The added bonus of the mural program is that they unlock Sanford's history for newcomers and youth, alike. The vibrant scenes create a pride in our community that gives everyone a sense a belonging.
Banksy's works have dealt with various political and social themes, including anti-war, anti-consumerism, anti-fascism, anti-imperialism, anti-authoritarianism, anarchism, nihilism, and existentialism. Additionally, the components of the human condition that his works commonly critique are greed, poverty, hypocrisy, boredom, despair, absurdity, and alienation. Although Banksy's works usually rely on visual imagery and iconography to put forth their message, Banksy has made several politically related comments in their various books. In summarising his list of "people who should be shot", he listed "Fascist thugs, religious fundamentalists, (and) people who write lists telling you who should be shot." While facetiously describing his political nature, Banksy declared that "Sometimes I feel so sick at the state of the world, I can't even finish my second apple pie."
Qui a dit que la déco murale métal ne pourrait pas également offrir des atouts pratiques ? L’horloge murale ci-dessus, toujours en métal patiné, est la preuve qu’on peut tranquillement mettre ensemble le fonctionnel et le décoratif. À propos, un élément déco et utile pareil serait la vedette de la conception d’un appartement studio d’esprit loft industriel. L’engrenage apparent dit «Steampunk» est également l’un des symboles les plus couramment associé au mouvement rétrofuturiste super intéressant.
Presque inutile de mentionner que la déco murale métal à effet vieilli se marie aisément aux intérieurs de style vintage. Mais que faire quand le nôtre n’a rien à faire avec ce style et est plutôt contemporain, voire minimaliste ? Comme vous pouvez le constater par vous-mêmes en jetant un coup d’œil rapide sur la photo ci-dessus, les grands panneaux en métal ajouré couverts de vert-de-gris ont l’air davantage attrayant quand on les place sur un fond blanc immaculé assez moderne. Notez également qu’ils ont adopté la forme créative d’échelles Monoyer, autrement dit les tableaux de lettres que les ophtalmologues utilisent pour vous tester la vision !
