STREET ART UTOPIA - We declare the world as our canvas Banksy pledges £80,000 to Russian radical art group Voina | Art and design Banksy, the world's most famous graffitist, is to donate almost £80,000 to a controversial Russian art group, two of whose members are in prison awaiting trial on charges of hooliganism. The secretive British street artist is expected to give all proceeds of a print sale tomorrow to the Voina (War) collective, which is notorious for radical actions such as staging an orgy in a Moscow museum and painting a huge phallus on a bridge in St Petersburg. Banksy is offering a print of his work Choose Your Weapon to each of 175 people randomly drawn from those registered to buy on picturesonwalls.com. "Each print is £450 but if it's any consolation Banksy is donating all royalties to the Voina artist co-operative in Russia, two of whom are currently residing in a St Petersburg jail," the site said. Police claim the group caused thousands of pounds worth of damage, but Russia's tight-knit art community has called for their release, saying the charges are excessive.
Arte Patricios Parque Patricios is a barrio to watch. It’s a fairly traditional, residential neighbourhood boasting some beautiful turn of the century architecture, a large park and a newly opened subte line. A huge amount of investment has gone into the barrio in recent years, and one of the latest projects has been to develop an an entire neighbourhood block adjacent to the park into the new site for Banco Ciudad. Arte Patricios was an innovative event which brought together dozens of artists over a single weekend to create an open air art gallery around the the perimeter of the construction site for Banco Ciudad. Wooden boards were attached to the metal walls surrounding the site, creating a gallery of empty spaces for the participating artists. Some artists focused on painting the board itself, whilst others incorporated the surrounding wall into their pieces. We turned up late on the last day of the event having got lost en route.
