In cleaning up London's graffiti for the Olympics city authorities threaten to squelch the work one of its biggest celebrities , the street artist Banksy, but on Monday the secretive graffiti artist showed he wouldn't be deterred from creating Olympics-related art while the whole world is watching.
Mike Stern, malgré quelques critiques de puristes qui ne veulent pas que l'on touche à l'oeuvre de Banksy, récidive. Le photographe anglais résidant à Los Angeles, fort d'une assez bonne idée finalement, a repris son plus bel appareil photo pour recréer "en vrai" des oeuvres du street artiste anglais.

Banksy has created his latest piece of street art in London, in what may be his first work since the Occupy London installation .
With most of his work being conducted at night it’s hard to imagine that Banksy lets his hair down that often (does he even have hair?). All that clandestine stencil spraying must get pretty tiring, so surely the last thing on your mind would be to attend a celeb-filled party. Imagine our surprise when we clapped eyes on these snaps, which apparently show the elusive chap attending Snoop Dogg’s private gig at the Playboy Club in London.
What appears to be a previously unseen piece from Banksy by the general public has surfaced for an auction at Sotheby’s London at the end of the month.
Update: A Facebook page has formed to try to prevent his Westwood piece (right) from being taken down. See that story and awesome new photos of Banksy artwork around town here .
If you’ve ever wondered about the fact that some street artist’s work sells for thousands of dollars but also just hangs out in public on walls, you’re not alone.
LONDON—At a press conference Tuesday, 89-year-old Rose Biggin, a grandmother from the Camden Town neighborhood of North London, announced that she was in fact the internationally renowned graffiti artist known only as Banksy. "Those drawings? Oh, yes, those are mine," said the diminutive octogenarian, who admitted to scaling buildings and climbing fences in order to put up life-sized stenciled images that satirize modern society's mores and its inherent political power structures. "It sure does help to pass the time." Biggin then returned home, where along with some of her "dearest friends," she sipped tea, sampled some nice ginger cake, and planned the necessary destruction of dominant capitalist paradigms.
