London Street Art in Melbourne

Thank to alert from my Colleague, Dries, I had a chance to visit Banksy street art exhibition near Federation Square in Melbourne CBD, just few blocks from our office.  I spent just about an hour or two, to explore his street art.  It takes a minute or two to soak-in the wit, sarcasm, and humor behind his art work.  Check the pics and mini video clip.

 Banksy is an England-based graffiti artist, political activist and film director of unverified identity. His satirical street art and subversive epigrams combine dark humour with graffiti executed in a distinctive stenciling technique. His works of political and social commentary have been featured on streets, walls, and bridges of cities throughout the world. Banksy’s work grew out of the Bristol underground scene, which involved collaborations between artists and musicians. Observers have noted that his style is similar to Blek le Rat, who began to work with stencils in 1981 in Paris. Banksy says that he was inspired by “3D”, a graffiti artist who later became a founding member of Massive Attack, an English musical group
