Ronald McDonald gets a Shoeshine from Banksy

Street Art // Wednesday, October 16, 2013
Banksy’s newest installation for his “Better Out Than In” project is located in South Bronx, which has the potential to be just as entertaining as the situation surrounding the beaver stenciled in East New York. This new sculpture is a little different from the others as a real live human will be polishing the shoes of a fiberglass replica of Ronald McDonald. This should make quite the spectacle. The sculpture will visit the sidewalk outside a different McDonalds every lunchtime for the next week.

Stephen Colbert attempts to provoke Banksy and instead gets Hanksy

Street Art // Tuesday, October 15, 2013
Bansky has done a remarkable job at grabbing the attention of everyone whether positive or negative. Publicists dream of such a client, but he has no need for them. Last week, Stephen Colbert of “The Colbert Report’ dedicated an entire section of his show hilariously provoking Banksy to create a custom piece on the wall outside of his studio in New York. A few days later, a bear with Colbert’s face on it (Stephen Colbear) appeared. The work was obviously not painted by Banksy, but instead Hanksy, a street artist who makes pun-influenced street art around New York. Colbert dedicated another segment of his show to the new “art” on his walls and it’s more than entertaining.

Street Art // Monday, October 14, 2013
Yeah, yeah, this was last year, but who can remember back that far? Unlike “The Wheel of Fortune” where you can participate and win big, Aware’s version “Wheel of Misfortune” can be more beneficial from a spectators view. A view from an airplane may by the best actually. Over the course of three days, Aware and his team painted this giant wheel at an old magnesium plant in Las Vegas and it’s the most colorful things for miles.  Play and your losing’s read as follow:  “Lose a home,” “Lose all hope,” and “Bankrob.”
