Banksy sure is persistent at keeping his name in the headlines. He now has his own TV show, with the premise based on the history of behaving badly in public. Sounds like an interesting topic right? As Channel 4 states, “The Antics Roadshow examines the stories behind some of the most audacious stunts of recent times and what motivates the perpetrators, from mindless boredom to heartfelt political beliefs.”

Well, this is either the best timing, or the worse timing (our friends at Nuart think the same thing), as Banksy has produced a program for the UK's Channel 4 called "The Antics Roadshow," charting the history of behaving badly in public, from anarchists and activists to attention seeking eccentrics. It airs this Saturday, August 13.

Rupert Murdoch and his News Of the World team loved to hack a good phone line, and maybe Banksy was one of the lucky British folks who had a conversation recorded. Regardless, a clever piece posted on the Bristol artist's site . . .

There are over 350,000 available apps in the App store right now, including the brand new Banksy App. No that's not a typo. So when you need to throw some Banksy knowledge down to your friends, or if your Grandma from London who used to read News of the World is in town, you can take her around.

We tried to resist the temptation of posting photographer Julia Kim Smith's new series, At Home with Banksy, because everyone seems to feel they are too good for Banksy news. But then we flipped and saw the actor Banksy reading the June issue of Juxtapoz featuring Ed Hardy, and we had to give a bow to Smith.

As we noted last week, Banksy and War Boutique had their work put on exhibition at London's Andipa Gallery. The works are part of Andipa Gallery's collection. Our London correspondent, Butterfly, heading over to snap a few shots at the opening.

We presume Banksy has done all right for himself, financially speaking, so maybe that’s an incentive to share a little. The British street artist has paid for admissions to the "Art in the Streets" exhibition on Mondays through August 8th when the show closes. In Banksy’s words, “I don't think you should have to pay to look at graffiti. You should only pay if you want to get rid of it”. Agreed. Now you have no excuse not to go.

At this point, Banksy has become a tad larger than life. Every breath he takes, every move he makes, the world is watching him (trying to get a Police reference together with that image up there). The Bristol artist will have original works on display at Anidpa Gallery in London starting on June 9, 2011.

As we noted last week, Banksy was to release a poster at this past weekend's Bristol Anarchist Bookfair, with the subject matter being about the recent Tesco riots in Bristol. Our England correspondent, Butterfly, headed to Bristol to check out the commemorative souvenir poster and the sights.

There is always a good story associated with a Banksy project, and the Bristol artist has just released a new print for the Bristol Anarchist Bookfair that occurs this Saturday, May 7, 2011. All proceeds for the print go to the Peoples Republic of Stokes Croft and associates.
