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.


These prints are beautiful, using trees hundreds of years old, Bryan Nash Gill, an artist that lives next to an old mill, uses old tree stumps as a print block. He rolls ink onto the surface, lays a sheet of handmade paper over the ‘block’, and then painstakingly rubs a little at a time with his fingernails over the surface of the paper. Every single tree ring is touch by the artist.

The result is a print that captures the life of a tree set for the paper mill.
A unique way to immortalize the ordinary tree.
