Banksy’s Plush Animal Slaughterhouse Truck In NY Highlights Animal Cruelty

October 14th, 2013 by Dovilas | No Comments | Filed in Design

In one of the latest installments of Banksy’s ‘Better Out Than In’ street art show in NY, a slaughterhouse truck has hit the streets of NY carrying a cargo of squealing and crying plush animals.

The display is both playful and disturbing – the plush animals we know from our childhood seem to be crying and squealing because of their pending doom. Banksy’s accompanying phone audioguide, in his usual sarcastic and tongue-in-cheek manner, explains the intent behind the piece: “…I know what you’re thinking, ‘Isn’t it a bit subtle?’ Here, the artist Banksy is making some sort of comment on the casual cruelty of the food industry. Or perhaps something vague and pretentious about the loss of childhood innocence.”

Banksy will be creating works of art around New York through the end of October. He has already created quite a few works worth looking at, which you can find at BanksyNY.com.

You Are Not Banksy by Nick Stern (Part II)

July 16th, 2012 by Tomas | No Comments | Filed in Design

Just last month, we shared Banksy’s Artwork Recreated in Real Life by Nick Stern and yesterday Nick sent us 11 new pictures from his “You are not Banksy” series. He was kind enough to answer a few questions about his inspiration and process.

How did you come up with the idea?

The idea to recreate Banksy’s iconic images came about in summer 2011 during the Riots that we breaking out in London (my home town).

I was shooting a actor friends and we wanted a ‘dark’ ‘moody’ feel to the images so we dressed him in a hoodie. I thought it would be an interesting project to recreate a riot scene with people thrower flowers instead of petrol bombs and bricks. That idea developed into the recreations.

How did you feel when your photos went viral? What has changed in your life?

I was amazed and flattered! So many people loved the idea. What has changed in my life. Not much except that it has confirmed I should be shooting more creative material. So that’s the plan!

Naked Man

How long does it take to recreate one scene?

To actually shoot them each image takes about 2 -3 hours. But I spend weeks getting everything ready before hand.

Child Soldier

I have an obsession with detail so the most time consuming part is sourcing the costumes and props to ensure the images match as close to Banksy’s images as possible. Where things aren’t available I make them. The Machine gun the small boy is holding should be a Vietnam era M60 gun. I couldn’t get hold of one (for a reasonable price) so I modified a different replica gun, using garden sprinkler tube for the barrels and all kinds of electrical and plumbing fittings. Along with 60 Crayola Crayons!

Pulp Fiction

How did people react to your idea?

I’m amazed how many people love it. Some people have bought a great number of prints, I’ve also sent some prints free to people who love it but can’t afford to buy them. I’ve had a lot of support from Central and South America. The French seem to hate me. Haha! What do the French know about art ;-)

Snorting Copper

Have you talked to Banksy about your project?

I’ve had no feedback from Banksy. I would love to do a book combining his street art and my images. I’ve already had some interest and looking for a publisher.

70 Amazing Examples of Street Art

March 7th, 2012 by Tomas | No Comments | Filed in Design

The attitude that art should be seen only in galleries is on its way out. This huge collection of creative street art will show you that city is probably the best canvas!

Every wall, fence or column could be turned into an art piece. It brings smiles and raises eyebrows. It is closer to people than the best painting or installation shown in a art gallery.

However, at the same time, bad street art can ruin a very nice downtown building making all neighborhoods seem run-down and uninviting. That’s why there will always be a debate whether it’s art or vandalism.

Now take a look at these 70 creative examples of street art. How can something so beautiful and creative be a crime?

20 Cool And Creative Street Ads

January 4th, 2011 by Bored Panda | No Comments | Filed in Design

Our numbers show that you really liked 15 Creative Street Art Ideas from OakoAk, and because numbers don’t lie you should really enjoy a more commercial take on it – I’m talking about street advertising.

The main difference between street art and street advertising is that one can lead you to jail, while another can even earn you money. Which one you choose is up to you, but from marketing point of view, street ads have a lot of benefits similar to bus stop advertising:

  • Street Ads Are Always On
  • Street Ads Provide Multiple Impressions Per Prospective Customer
  • Street Ads Give Precise Geographic Targeting

So without further delay, lets take a look at 20 most creative guerrilla marketing ideas placed underneath your feet!

To promote Durex condoms with ribs or with knobs, in some cities in Belgium condoms were painted on paving stones with the according pattern.

5. Water Is Life

In 2008 the town of Drachten in the Netherlands got a heavy makeover when Henk Hofstra painted a kilometer-long strip of the main road a pale blue color. The draft demanded 4000 liters of paint, and according to the author’s design project is a monument to the river, to remind citizens that once there was water on the ground of the road.
