Streets: New Banksy Work in London & BAFTA Nomination

In near perfect synchronicity with the “Sperm” piece Banksy officially claimed as his own through his website last week, another work popped up in the London Borough of Camden which bears striking resemblances to that of the illustrious street artist. The “Living Room” themed chalk piece, with stencil detail accents reminiscent of murals thrown up in Boston and Detroit last year, is located at the same canal wall where the infamous Banksy vs. Robbo battle began, only for it to keep going and going at […]

Streets: Banksy & Robbo (Take 4)

By now, you all use be familiar with the Banksy and Robbo situation in Camden. It didn’t take long for Team Robbo to respond to the recent modifications to the four stencils at the canal by either some enterprising fans of the street artist or Mr. B himself. With one of the recent changes in an apparent response to a facebook image that Robbo’s crew found offensive, it’s no longer clear who all is involved in this fiasco as we are pretty sure that Banksy […]

Streets: Banksy Vs. Robbo Copycat?

Another turn of events in the Robbo and Banksy story was recently reported on Graffoto. It appears someone has again modified the four pieces by Banksy in Camden, but this time reversing much of what Robbo did. With Robbo recently escalating his “war” against other Banksy stencils outside of the Camden, there was speculation as to what Banksy’s response would be. With so much on his plate recently, and frankly, no need to respond to Robbo’s bravado, we are not sure Mr. B would take […]

Banksy Roundup

We’ve put together a little roundup of recent Banksy news that will hopefully tie up some loose ends.  In the video above, you will see a message from Mr. B – read to the audience before the screening of his documentary “Exit Through the Gift Shop” at the Sundance Film Festival. We wish we could have been there, but there are a couple reviews out so far (here & here).  Also, for lucky fans in the UK, it looks like there are already some tickets […]

Streets: Banksy vs. Robbo not finished

It looks as though Robbo and his crew have painted over another one of Banksy’s pieces in Camden. If you remember, what set off this confrontation was Banksy painting over one of Robbo’s historical throwups, which was over 20 years old (although the feud probably had its origins from even earlier).  After Team Robbo went back and remixed THAT Banksy piece, they now modify another one implying that Mr. B is fishing for street cred. What is making what Team Robbo is doing more effective […]

Streets: Banksy Vs. Robbo

So… It seems that one of the pieces Banksy put up last week has a back story that most didn’t know about. Apparently, he stenciled over a 1985 piece by Robbo and other writers who were some of the pioneers of graf in London in the mid 80s. This has caused a pretty strong outrage among some old school graffiti writers and it looks like Robbo has gone back to paint over the piece, cleverly incorporating Banksy’s piece just like Banksy incorporated his. More images […]

Video: Banksy Camden Walkthrough

By now, most of you have seen the four new Banksy pieces that went up last weekend in north London. Art of the State recently posted up a quick video walkthrough that takes your past all the stencils which gives you a nice perspective into the locations that the Bristol Bomber chose for each piece. Discuss Banksy here.

Streets: New Banksy – Camden (Regent’s Canal)

Banksy fan and photographer Mammal sent us over some photos of new stencils from the elusive street artist near Regent’s Canal in Camden. Well-timed as usual with the Copenhagen climate talks ending without a legally binding treaty, Mr. B dedicated one of his pieces to the subject (after the jump) as well as this piece seen above with a pretty sweet tag. Take a look after the jump at more images as well as a third piece spotted by another man on the scene – […]
