Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 13, 2011
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.
Juxtapoz // Monday, May 09, 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.

There hasn't been a 100% confirmation that this new piece in Fitzrovia, central London yesterday (Monday) is a Banksy, but it sure looks like it could be a stencil from the artist whom we just saw at MOCA a few weeks back...

Of course, Banksy was the "special guest" today at MOCA's Art In the Streets. The best kept non-secret had a large space next to Street Market, Jamie Reid, and a fantastic mural by Mode 2. Banksy brought in some really nice paintings, and a very large construction vehicle to, you know, hang out in a museum. More after the jump . . .

A little birdie in the Juxtapoz community got creative with "Banksy" today and was able to "interview" the elusive artist about his Academy Award snub at the hands of "Inside Job." Yeah, let's keep it at that. Charlie Sheen has nothing on this. Exclusive video after the jump . . .
Street Art // Tuesday, February 22, 2011
We haven't watched an episode of "The Simpsons" in probably four years, because let's face it, it has become just a tad too zany over the past decade. But we did catch both Banksy appearances on the seminal FOX program, including the one this past weekend where Marge, Homer, and the fam go to the Academy Awards. More after the jump . . .
