Been spending the last couple days scouring the web for anything Banksy. Briefly, he's an infamous British graffiti artist, who's work ranges from the playful to darkly political. For his outdoor pieces, he primarily makes use of stencils, brilliantly incorporating aspects of the "canvas" into his creation. Here are some of my favorites, somewhat organized by content:
This is just a sampling, you'll find many more strewn throughout the www...
Visit here, for some of the images he painted on the Israeli/West Bank barrier.
Read here about the fake blow-up doll Guantanamo detainee he put on the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad ride at Disneyland.
Go here to see the murals he painted in derelict New Orleans, post-Katrina.
And watch Children of Men again, looking for two of his pieces in-film.
