Bansky : a street artist

Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

Banksy (1974 — ) is a graffiti artist from Bristol, UK, whose artwork has appeared throughout London and other locations around the world

Some believe that his stencilled graffiti provides a voice for those living in urban environments that could not otherwise express themselves, and that his work is also something which improves the aesthetic quality of urban surroundings

A common technique in Banksy’s art is to play on the perspective and edges of the item on which he is stencilling.

David Hockney : Fresh Flowers exhibition

Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

The first major exhibition of the artist’s work in Paris in a decade! Wih paintings made on an iPad and iPhone!

On display you’ll see a number of new paintings created on the iPhone and iPad, mostly using the Brushes app. Not only will the painting already finished be put on display, but Hockeny will be e-mailing in new ones during the time of the show so that they can be seen too. How very 2.0 and 21st century!

Hockney, who has been an important contributor to the Pop Art movement of the 1960s, has created some of the most memorable works of painting, photography and design of the 20th century
