Banksy

Posted in art, culture, lomo, lomography by tarantulatrash on March 8, 2010

While in England over christmas, I closed my eyes, moved my finger around the map, and opened them with the intention of going to wherever my finger was pointed. As a result, I ended up in Bristol, home to “Skins”, Banksy and as I soon found out, the WORST hostel in the whole of Europe.

I never thought I would have the privilege of seeing one of Banksy’s pieces, but wandering around hungover looking for somewhere to buy a big breakfast, I looked up and saw this-

Of course, I’m assuming this is Banksy’s work, considering it was in Bristol and uses his distinct stencilling style. If this is in fact by someone else, please let me know and I will correct it! Photo taken with LC-A+ and slide film. It’s a shame someone decided it was worth putting blue paint on. For more of this, go to Banksy’s website

    It certainly is Banksy’s work.

    If you have a look around the area (Stokes Croft/Gloucester Road) there are one or two more to be discovered.

      I’m not sure when I’ll be back there! I don’t live in England. I’m glad it is him, I’d hate to get it wrong and give him credit for someone else’s work.

    I realised you don’t live there after I’d written that!

    Nice blog by the way, I had a little browse about and it’s really interesting. Hope you don’t mind.
