In our last article, AM showed you some great pictures of Banksy’s latest show in Bristol from the special preview night. Sir Banksy demonstrated that he could create a show that seamlessly weaved his witty street-cred with the pompous realm of high-society. Considering the limited time we had to enjoy the show, we went back on opening day to bring you a closer look at the mock-up of Banksy’s actual studio. Read on after the jump…
This indoor success shouldn’t surprise fans who know why Banksy is called the Bristol Bomber. Considering how guarded his identity is, it really is a special treat to see the the inspiration and stencils behind some of street art’s greatest pieces. From Queen Vic to Girl with Red Balloon to Kissing Coppers to Barcode these simple, yet timeless stencils are the cornerstone tools that have allowed Banksy to climb in and out of public wall spaces with quickness but still leave a lasting impression on the populous.
