I was surfing at Coolhunting.com recently and I found an interesting piece about a new venue of the always witty artist, Banksy. His work always surprises and spoofs. Some of my favorites are his animatronic animals shown at the "Pet Store and Charcoal Grill", and his murals especially the one of the rat cutting strings.
His manifesto is currently a quote from Emo Philips.
When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realized God doesn’t work that way, so I stole
one and prayed for forgiveness.
Because he's so very funny, I have seen a lot of his stuff copied on the street including T-shirts etc. This new venue, the shop, (where all is currently free), may be an anti-ripoff response. Anyway, among the Bansky free downloads, the paintings of the "classical" works are my favorites.
