The old town was formerly a fishing harbour which in 1301 was recorded to have 150 homesteads with 800 inhabitants. A mediaeval wooden lighthouse, known locally as a foïer, was built on a dune and lit by charcoal and faggots but this burned down several times. On one occasion at least it was as a result of the continuous conflict between the English and the French in the Hundred Years War. The chronicler Enguerrand de Monstrelet mentions that during 1414 the English garrison in Calais raided south and burned the town.[7] Eventually the lighthouse was replaced by a stone tower at the side of which a chapel was built in the 15th century, but this did not save it from further mishap. During the second siege of Montreuil in 1544, the English advanced from the south and burned 200 houses, the church and the mill as they passed through Berck. What was left of the place was then burned by the French on their way to relieve the siege.[8]
Last year, Banksy opened the Walled Off Hotel, a full-service art hotel located in the West Bank city of Bethlehem billed as having “the worst view in the world,” with musical contributions from Massive Attack’s 3D, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, Flea, Hans Zimmer, and more. In 2015, Banky constructed his very own Dismaland “bemusement park” in London.
The roster artists were selected by RACC’s Public Art Murals Program Committee demonstrate the skills, experience and interest in designing and painting large scale paintings and/or murals. As you review this roster, read about each of the artists in their own words and view details of up to three past projects to get a feel for their work.  Links to websites and social media outlets allow you to further explore their practice. All artists live and work in either Oregon or Washington and have previous experience working large scale.

In 2014, for the first time ever, Mayor John Cranley declared the month of October “ArtWorks Mural Month” with an official proclamation! The proclamation ceremony kicked off a month long celebration which included the launch of our new Mural Tour program, numerous mural dedications, and several special events around the City. Check out our official proclamation below!

Contrairement à un tirage photo classique qui, exposé en pleine lumière, jaunira après quelques années, un tirage d'art a une longévité exceptionnelle d'environ 100 ans. Ces tests de longévité sont opérés par des instituts spécialisés indépendants comme le Wilhelm Research Institute sur la combinaison des encres pigmentaires et des papiers d'art sélectionnés par Artdeqo. 

Les papiers lustrés permettent d'atteindre des noirs profonds et une valeur étendue de couleurs au même titre que les papiers Gloss (Brillant), avec toutefois l'avantage d'une structure particulièrement intéressante qui casse les reflets afin de mettre en valeur votre tirage en toute circonstance. C'est notre papier de référence, il répond à tous les...
En plus, vous pouvez devenir un artiste vous-même et fabriquer votre propre déco murale métal unique au monde. Les cerceaux en laiton, ou en un autre métal d’ailleurs, qu’on utilise pour la création de macramés, peuvent être facilement détournés et utilisés comme base pour une décoration super originale qui en même temps coûte très peu. Vous devez tout simplement les mettre ensemble en utilisant du fil métallique pour bijoux et les accrocher au mur !
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.
Destinée aux reproductions de peintures et aux tirages photos de haut vol, cette qualité s’adresse principalement aux photographes, aux artistes et à toutes personnes souhaitant un résultat d'une très grande qualité. Elle se distingue par une finesse d’impression maximum et l’utilisation d’encres pigmentaires ultrachromes permettant de reproduire une gamme de couleurs beaucoup plus importante que les autres tirages et des couleurs très vives impossibles à obtenir avec des encres latex ou à solvant.
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]
Murals are important in that they bring art into the public sphere. Due to the size, cost, and work involved in creating a mural, muralists must often be commissioned by a sponsor. Often it is the local government or a business, but many murals have been paid for with grants of patronage. For artists, their work gets a wide audience who otherwise might not set foot in an art gallery. A city benefits by the beauty of a work of art.
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.

The world premiere of the film Exit Through the Gift Shop occurred at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, on 24 January. He created 10 street artworks around Park City and Salt Lake City to tie in with the screening.[85] In February, The Whitehouse public house in Liverpool, England, was sold for £114,000 at auction. The side of the building has an image of a giant rat by Banksy.[86]
Tout en participant au développement de la création artistique contemporaine (encouragée par les mesures fiscales françaises), vous avez la possibilité d’investir dans une réelle valeur refuge. Aujourd’hui la défiscalisation permet aux professions libérales et aux entreprises de se constituer un patrimoine artistique tout en réduisant leurs impôts.
After the stone tower of St John the Baptist fell into disuse as a lighthouse, it was replaced at first by a primitive oil lamp suspended in the dunes to mark the sandbars at the river mouth. Two years later a 10-metre tower was mounted above a keeper’s cottage but this became masked when the maritime hospital was built in 1861 and a new, taller tower was constructed in 1868. The two buildings, referred to locally as father and son (le père et fils), stood next to each other until they were dynamited by the Germans in 1944.[18] The current concrete lighthouse, designed by Georges Tourry, was completed in 1951 and is 45 metres high. Its light can be seen from a distance of 24 nautical miles (44 km).[19]

Among the structures photographed prior to the opening were a large pinwheel by Banksy,[10] Horse Scaffolding Sculpture by Ben Long,[11] and a twisted truck sculpture, Big Rig Jig by artist Mike Ross which was previously shown at Burning Man in 2007.[12][13][14] Works by 58 artists, including Jenny Holzer, Damien Hirst, Jeff Gillette, Jimmy Cauty and Bill Barminski were featured in the park.[4] Banksy said he contacted the "best artists I could imagine" to exhibit, with two artists turning him down.[15]
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]
Dismaland was a temporary art project organised by street artist Banksy, constructed in the seaside resort town of Weston-super-Mare in Somerset, England.[1] Prepared in secret, the pop-up exhibition at the Tropicana, a disused lido, was "a sinister twist on Disneyland" that opened during the weekend of 21 August 2015[2] and closed permanently on 27 September 2015, 36 days later. Banksy described it as a "family theme park unsuitable for children."[3]
Certains propriétaires et concepteurs repoussent les limites de l’imagination en misant sur une déco murale métal artistique et accrocheuse. Par exemple, un revêtement mural du sol au plafond en tôle ondulé peut sembler un peut excessif pour certains gens. On doit toutefois se mettre d’accord que c’est une solution super originale et complètement acceptable, surtout en aménagement et décoration de la villa, de la cabane de jardin ou quand on veut accomplir un intérieur d’esprit chalet de montagne !
Banky W: You know, throughout my career, people I’ve worked with on music videos all knew I had wanted to get into movie making. I had some previous conversations with Kemi Adetiba years ago about doing a film. When they started casting for the Wedding Party she told Mo and the other partners that they should let me audition. And I think some of the other partners were like “oh she is just saying this because Banky is her friend” but she told them, “well you are going to see 20 people or so for the role so just add one more and let Banky also audition for the role?”
Les tirages peuvent être contrecollés sur un support rigide pour faciliter leur mise en place dans un cadre ou être exposés. J'ai choisi le PVC expansé 2mm qui est particulièrement interessant: économique, très léger, résistant et moins fragile que le Dibond. Tous les types de support peuvent être contrecollés sur PVC expansé. Pour des raisons pratiques, je ne peux expédier que les tirages contrecollés aux formats de 30x45 cm ou moins.
A not political, but social related mural covers a wall in an old building, once a prison, at the top of a cliff in Bardiyah, in Libya. It was painted and signed by the artist in April 1942, weeks before his death on the first day of the First Battle of El Alamein. Known as the Bardia Mural, it was created by English artist, private John Frederick Brill.[14]
In August 2004, Banksy produced a quantity of spoof British £10 notes replacing the picture of the Queen's head with Diana, Princess of Wales's head and changing the text "Bank of England" to "Banksy of England". Someone threw a large wad of these into a crowd at Notting Hill Carnival that year, which some recipients then tried to spend in local shops. These notes were also given with invitations to a Santa's Ghetto exhibition by Pictures on Walls. The individual notes have since been selling on eBay for about £200 each. A wad of the notes were also thrown over a fence and into the crowd near the NME signing tent at the Reading Festival. A limited run of 50 signed posters containing ten uncut notes were also produced and sold by Pictures on Walls for £100 each to commemorate the death of Princess Diana. One of these sold in October 2007 at Bonhams auction house in London for £24,000.[44]

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!
