Streets: Banksy in Boston

If we were privy to Banksy’s flight itinerary the last several months, this is what we might have seen: UK – Utah – UK -> LA -> SF -> Chicago -> Detroit -> Toronto -> Boston or some combination thereof (strange that he skipped NY). How do we know? Well, he leaves a trail of stencils (of course, we will never know for sure unless they are confirmed). Some of readers may have had Banksy overload ever since his documentary came out at Sundance, but […]

Streets: Banksy hits up Seattle, Detroit, Chicago, and Toronto?

After throwing the best premiere party for his documentary in Los Angeles and gifting San Francisco with the most street pieces, Banksy appears to have been taking a whirlwind tour of other major North American cities. Either he’s been racking up some pretty major frequent fliers mileage or he has a crew out assisting him (or there are some copycats out there). The only way to know for sure if these are real is to keep checking the outdoors section on Banksy’s website for updates […]

Streets: Banksy in SF (Part IV)

Apparently Banksy has been real busy in San Francisco as another five new stencils have been discovered (see previous six here). Combining business with pleasure, the stealthy street artist has hit up famous spots like the Fisherman’s Wharf and Alcatraz. We can’t remember the last time Banksy has gifted one city with so many street pieces, so fans in the Bay Area are definitely the subject of some worldwide jealousy at the moment. All the images after the jump…

Banksy compensates rock band for name: “Exit Through The Gift Shop”

With Banksy’s recent documentary Exit Through The Gift Shop premiering with much success and fan fare accross the world (coverage here), wouldn’t it be a pain to share a name with this recently well-known film?  Well, for the rock band formerly known as Exit Through The Gift Shop it becomes a blessing in disguise as Banksy took the time to make a “double mattress” size canvas for the band with a new name of Brace Yourself, which has the Grim Reaper clutching the wheel of […]

Streets: Banksy in San Francisco (Part III)

Sir Banksy is on a tear in SF as we round up 6 different spots which he banged out in the past few days. As we see two which we already covered (Part I & Part II), what’s cool is our friends from Warholian did a little hometown research and plotted the exact addresses of each piece. So if you’re lucky enough to be near the Bay area, you should get your GPS out and do a little urban sight seeing. (While they lasts…) See pics of each one […]

Streets: Banksy in San Francisco (Part II)

Looks like a second possible Banksy piece has been spotted in the Bay Area on Valencia Street with what looks to be an obvious reference to his Cop with Koons Dog stencil in LA that was stolen recently. So, it appears that Mr. B has hit up two out of the three cities in the U.S. where his film premiered (no love for New York?). Take a look at some more detailed shots after the jump of this piece as well as more shots of […]

Streets: Banksy in San Francisco?

Hmm, with the series of premieres already making it’s way across the nation for Banksy’s “Exit Through the Gift Shop” including LA (covered) and New York (covered), it’s only natural to assume that Banksy could easily whiz up the Cali coast to No Cal and hit up San Francisco. We got a tip from our friends at Warholian that this could be the latest piece from the masked bomber. Located in the Chinatown area, it looks very familiar… What do you think? Discuss Banksy here.

Openings: Banksy – “Exit Through The Gift Shop” LA premiere

AM was lucky enough to be able to attend the Los Angeles premiere of Banksy’s “Exit Through The Gift Shop” earlier tonight at the historic Los Angeles Theatre. With the art community on high alert, the cavernous and exquisitely beautiful theater was filled (at least the first floor) with collectors, celebrities, pseudocelebrities, and knowledgeable street art fans. As we guessed in an earlier post, no expense was spared for this important opening with major media outlets on hand to witness the many installations on site […]

Streets: Banksy in LA (Part II)

As we suspected, Banksy wasn’t done with Los Angeles after the first stencil (security guard with Koons dog) he put up yesterday. Seen above is a newly discovered piece in downtown LA that is raising expectations for the special premiere of his documentary tonight in a secret location. As opposed to his premiere in NY (btw, we are giving a poster away in that article), the Bristol Bomber actually appears to be in town for this screening and by not announcing where it will be […]

Streets: Banksy in LA

As hoped for by Banksy fanantics who are stateside, the elusive street artist has officially landed. With the his documentary, “Exit Through The Gift Shop” premiering in New York (covered), and set to premiere in LA and SF, it was only a matter of time before Mr. B gifted his followers here with some street work (on La Brea & 4th). We’ll have more on the premieres and new stencils as they get up.  Another view after the jump…
