The town has had an aerodrome since 1917. This was in part because at the start of the 20th century, the area played its part in the race to take to the air. The artist Jan Lavezzari, who had originally studied engineering, tested a double lateen sail hang glider from the Merlimont sand dunes in February 1904. He was followed there that Easter by Gabriel Voisin, who made a trial flight in a glider plane modelled on that of the Wright Brothers and over a few seconds was airborne for 50 metres.[22]

In 2003, at an exhibition called Turf War, held in a London warehouse, Banksy painted on animals. At the time he gave one of his very few interviews, to the BBC's Nigel Wrench.[41] Although the RSPCA declared the conditions suitable, an animal rights activist chained herself to the railings in protest.[42] An example of his subverted paintings is Monet's Water Lily Pond, adapted to include urban detritus such as litter and a shopping trolley floating in its reflective waters; another is Edward Hopper's Nighthawks, redrawn to show that the characters are looking at a British football hooligan, dressed only in his Union Flag underpants, who has just thrown an object through the glass window of the cafe. These oil paintings were shown at a twelve-day exhibition in Westbourne Grove, London in 2005.[43]


In February 2015 Banksy published a 2-minute video titled Make this the year YOU discover a new destination about his trip to Gaza Strip. During the visit he painted a few artworks including a kitten on the remains of a house destroyed by an Israeli air strike. ("I wanted to highlight the destruction in Gaza by posting photos on my website—but on the internet people only look at pictures of kittens") and a swing hanging off a watchtower. In a statement to The New York Times his publicist said,

I have enjoyed watching street art and creative graffiti grow over the last 30 years (I'm a 60 year old grandma). Banksy has raised the bar so much higher. His earlier work was strongly English, with commentary on uniquely British foibles, but every year it has expanded to lambast ridiculousness everywhere. I especially loved his rat series, which was brilliant.
Local residents of Weston-super-Mare were told that a Hollywood company called Atlas Entertainment was using the location to film a crime thriller called Grey Fox. Signs proclaiming "Grey Fox Productions" were posted around entrances to the site.[5][6][7] Pictures of its construction began surfacing online in early August 2015, and included a "fairy castle and massive sculptures".[8] Holly Cushing, whose name appeared in the credits of a documentary about Banksy and who is often reported to be his manager, was sighted at the construction site before the opening, which contributed to the decline of its status as "secret".[8][9]
The Borderline Mural Project covers a 200 foot long wall in the tunnels under the campus of MIT with murals and magic. The tunnel is a commonly used route between MIT Buildings 66 and E17 during bad weather. A useful connection between point A to point B,  Borderline aims to make the tunnels a destination. The magic comes in the form of augmented reality: viewers can use the Artvive mobile phone app to experience an extension of the imagery.

As one Twitter user noted, another work that had a bit more to say about the concept of destruction was artist Chris Burden’s 1988 exhibition of Samson, which consisted of a 100-ton jack pressed against supporting walls at the Newport Harbor Art Museum and tied to a turnstile such that (in theory, if not in practice) if enough visitors attended the building would collapse. Fire officials later had the piece removed as a safety hazard.

A partir de l'imitation du procédé indien, la technique a évolué vers une mécanisation permettant une production plus massive. Durant les dix premières années (1760-1770), l'impression à la planche de bois fut la seule technique utilisée, permettant des impressions polychromes. la toile provenant de France , de Suisse, des Indes était d'abord lavée dans l'eau de La Bièvre, puis battue au fléau pour la débarrasser de son apprêt ; plus tard des batteries mécaniques remplaceront ces manipulations. Une fois séchée elle passait à la calandre pour en aplanir le grain. Au préalable, les motifs avaient été gravés en relief sur les planches de bois. Ce n'étaient pas les couleurs elles-mêmes que l'on imprimait mais des mordants -sels de fer et d'alumine- qui, appliqués sur la toile, permettaient l'obtention des couleurs désirées.
Les papiers utilisés sont de la plus grande qualité : du papier à la cuve ou du Fine Art Pearl de Hahnemühle, spécialiste reconnu du papier photo. En ce qui concerne les techniques d'exposition plus traditionnelles, telles que les tirages barytés ou les tirages Ilfochrome, nous ne les proposons plus aujourd'hui. Que vous preniez des photos avec iPhone, Canon, Nikon, Sony, Panasonic ou Olympus, peu importe. Téléchargez vos meilleures photos sur WhiteWall (Upload) et découvrez les capacités de votre fichier. Lorsqu'une photo est appliquée sur un support, comme un matériau composite en aluminium ou en polyéthylène (alu Dibond) par exemple, on parle alors de contrecollage ou de scellement de la photo (chez WhiteWall nous appelons également cela Lumabond). Rien qu'à nous, nous vous proposons 6 techniques modernes de contrecollage et de scellement différentes. Mentionnons tout d'abord l'impression directe sur aluminium à prix avantageux, produite à l'aide de notre imprimante UV moderne.

Banksy started as a freehand graffiti artist in 1990–1994[30] as one of Bristol's DryBreadZ Crew (DBZ), with two other artists known as Kato and Tes.[31] He was inspired by local artists and his work was part of the larger Bristol underground scene with Nick Walker, Inkie and 3D.[32][33] During this time he met Bristol photographer Steve Lazarides, who began selling Banksy's work, later becoming his agent.[34] By 2000 he had turned to the art of stencilling after realising how much less time it took to complete a work. He claims he changed to stencilling while hiding from the police under a rubbish lorry, when he noticed the stencilled serial number[35] and by employing this technique, he soon became more widely noticed for his art around Bristol and London.[35] He was the goalkeeper for the Easton Cowboys and Cowgirls football team in the 1990s, and toured with the club to Mexico in 2001.[36] Banksy's first known large wall mural was The Mild Mild West painted in 1997 to cover advertising of a former solicitors' office on Stokes Croft in Bristol. It depicts a teddy bear lobbing a Molotov cocktail at three riot police.[37]

The church of Saint Jean Baptiste was restored in 1954 and the 15th century carvings on its corbels were then highlighted in paint. The choir and belfry are now listed monuments.[13] The new church of Notre-Dame des Sables was opened in 1886 on the marketplace of the beach quarter. Its seating for 1,500 was to cater principally for holiday makers in season and the patients from the many medical establishments profiting from the sea air. There are paintings on the choir walls.[14]
Vos photos s’ajustent automatiquement à la taille de votre toile. Par exemple, si vous transférez une photo carrée pour créer une toile carrée, votre image est déjà au bon format et vous n’aurez pas à la recadrer En revanche, si vous mettez une photo rectangulaire sur la même toile carrée, elle sera automatiquement coupée, mais vous pouvez l’ajuster à votre guise dans notre studio.
