This new video, is a collaboration between Banksy and Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, directed by Raymond Salvatore Harmon. The video is for his new solo song ‘The Hollow Earth’,is available today on 12′ Vinyl LP as the flip side to FeelingPulledApartbyHorses, [Visit radiohead.com for more info].
The video, comprised of rapidly [understatement!] moving visuals, with subliminal Banksy graffiti images mixed in, is pretty crazy, and not easy to watch [headache/seizure inducing this early in the morning!], has an almost painterly quality. Very interesting…the more you watch – the more you see.
I have been out of internet commission for the better part of last week. It is back up and running, with the speed of dial up, only slower. I would normally be looking for the end of the internet, but I have never been a patient person. My posts have been scarce this week as a result of my limited surfing.
So…tonight I am going back in my archives of stuff I like, starting with graffiti artist, Banksy. This week, I found a print my husband bought at a show in New York about 5 years ago. It has been in storage since, waiting to be framed. This was probably my first introduction to who is now one of my favourite contemporary artists. The print has finally come out of storage and will be framed asap.
Banksy has done some amazing work, he is incredibly talented, creative and always has a message. He is elusive and while many have guessed at his identity, no one really knows for sure who he is, or if they do they aren’t saying.
Have a look at this trailer for a film scheduled for release sometime in June called ‘Banksy’s Coming for Dinner’.
“Experience the clash of celebrity, as Hollywood royalty Joan Collins and husband Percy meet Banksy, the most famous living artist in the world. Banksys Coming for Dinner is a film within a film and questions the very nature of ‘reality’ at every level. The controversial new reality documentary style Banksy movie by Ivan Massow features music by Mr Scruff.”
Banksy’s most recent solo show – “Banksy Versus the Bristol Museum” just opened a couple of days ago. Here is a look what you can expect to see.
This is part of a campaign to promote writing on designated graffiti spaces rather than someone elses property.
Would you write all over your property?
