OaKoAk takes what the city gives and create a witty street piece out of it for our entertainment. A lot of these pieces are simple statements very well done.
Banksy is an anonymous British graffiti artist, political activist, film director and painter. His street art often combines irreverent dark humour with graffiti done in a distinctive stenciling technique. They have been found on streets, walls, bridges of cities throughout the world. Banky's stencils feature striking and humourous images occasionally combined with slogans. The message is usually anti-war, anti-capitalism or anti-establishment. Subjects often include rats, apes, policemen, soldiers, children and the elderly.
I heard that Banksy started creating stencils for speed incase he was caught in the act, and could potentially be charged for vandelism. So prepares the stencils beforehand so on the scene, it takes less time to create his art. Because of all this recognition now, it has also been said that if you live in an area close to a piece of Banksy's work it increases the value of your house..
I like how his work is so distinctive, it tends to nearly always be the figures in the art being this particular style and colours, of black and white stencil. The best work in anything, is that which is instantly recognisible, and Banksy is really distinctive so has therefore become successful and known worldwide. Here are a few example of his work.
