Banksy paired with emerging street artist for new show

Banksy has been paired with an emerging urban artist working under the moniker War Boutique for an exhibition which opens on Thursday.

Film suggests that Banksy’s elephant DID bring misery to a homeless man

In March, I wrote about the strange history of a water-tank by the Pacific Coast Highway in Los Angeles which had been jollified by the street artist Banksy during a recent visit to Southern California, with the words "this looks a bit like an elephant."

The gloves are off: Graffiti legend King Robbo has resurfaced to settle a score with Banksy

After meeting the man hailed as Banksy's nemesis I reckon the elusive artist is much braver (or more reckless) than I'd taken him for. Said nemesis is the Eighties graffiti legend who calls himself King Robbo. A towering giant at 6ft 8in, he's as solid as an oak tree, with his face obscured by a dark hood when we first meet. If I were Banksy I'd be quaking in my boots. And I certainly wouldn't want to upset him. Which makes the artistic spat played out between these two on London's streets, the biggest public display of artistic rivalry since Matisse and Picasso, all the more audacious.

Banksy exhibit 'inspires criminals', police insist

They called it "art in the streets" and that is exactly what they got. The Museum of Contemporary Art (Moca) in Los Angeles finds itself at loggerheads with the city's police force, amid allegations that its latest blockbuster exhibition has led to a spike in spray can-fuelled vandalism.

'Birth and death of a Banksy' – mysterious artwork covered up

A work attributed to the British graffiti artist Banksy has caused a dispute in the elegant seaside city of San Sebastian – but not, as is often the case with his work, because the authorities were irked by the defaced wall. The problem this time was that other graffiti artists were so jealous of Banksy's artwork that they tried to destroy it.

Ben Eine takes English street art out of short trousers

The Moniker International Art Fair opens in London this week. Scheduled to coincide with Frieze, Moniker offers an alternative platform for less mainstream artists to showcase their work – something which Ben Eine, graffiti writer and best pal of Banksy, thinks is a clear move toward taking street art out of short trousers and into adulthood.
