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.
In 16th-century Europe, oil painting on canvas arose as an easier method for mural painting. The advantage was that the artwork could be completed in the artist's studio and later transported to its destination and there attached to the wall or ceiling. Oil paint may be a less satisfactory medium for murals because of its lack of brilliance in colour. Also the pigments are yellowed by the binder or are more easily affected by atmospheric conditions. The canvas itself is more subject to rapid deterioration than a plaster ground. Different muralists tend to become experts in their preferred medium and application, whether that be oil paints, emulsion or acrylic paints applied by brush, roller or airbrush/aerosols. Clients will often ask for a particular style and the artist may adjust to the appropriate technique.
Bon, il n’y a pas une réponse correcte universelle à cette question, mais surtout de bonnes et de mauvaises réalisations. Pour ne pas parler sans fondement, il convient d’examiner quelques exemples illustrant les associations réussies et les erreurs à éviter. La première proposition, à admirer ci-dessus, sera super utile aux propriétaires de salons peints en couleurs fraîches relativement foncées. Elle illustre comment mettre davantage en valeur un meuble de design exclusif en le couronnant d’une déco murale métal artistique.
Papier photo type brillant autocollant sur support plastique 190 grs, présente une surface d'impression parfaitement lisse et un dos autocollant très pratique! Le gamut et la D-max sont excellents, ce papier est à adopter quand les photographies doivent être contrecollées sur des supports. Attention ce support contient des azurants optiques et sa stabilité dans le temps est moindre que celle des papiers barytés ou que celle du support vinyl ci-dessous.
This was purchased as a present for my freshman college son, who had seen it in the bookstore during visits. I should say that he does already have familiarity with Banksy's work. He loves it. It's well made, very sturdy, nice binding (hardcover bought). Had terrific pictures and graphics. Lot's of captioning, some longer writing about pieces, periods, etc. Very dense, perfect for browsing thru bits at a time. And it's a real conversation piece in the dorm, helping to strike up conversations with other people who are interested in Banksy, art, street culture, you name it. Plus, my son isn't normally too interested in visual art, but here he is appreciating the medium in a very subversive way - that sneaky Banksy!
