SUMOskinny magazine is the ultimate guide to college life. Part local, part national, and all college.
Relatively unknown in the States before Exit Through The Gift Shop, the doc(mock?)umentary about the street art revolution, Banksy was thrust into the world spotlight after the film's release. It was even nominated for an Oscar, which it should have won if not for the uptight buttholes in the Academy. He has steadily made waves ever since, appearing and disappearing from the public eye.
Now he is back with some new gallery works. Although some of these are more "reimaginings" than fresh, new designs, they still have his flair and style of simplistic yet thought-provoking imagery. Check them out below:
My personal favorites are the second and fourth ones. "The Girl With The Red Balloon" has always been one of my favorite pieces, but the chimps in Parliament is hilarious. I look forward to more releases from Banksy, as his first book is due out in July, You Are An Acceptable Level Of Threat. Hopefully we get more new art as well coinciding with the book's debut.
