Guess What? Not All Street Art is Banksy

This may come as a surprise to many of you, but not all street art is "a Banksy."

Banksy-fied "Elephant" Tank Was Actually Somebody's Home

TV Junkie: An Appeal To David Letterman - WTF Dude?

Is This ANOTHER Banksy Crayon-Inspired Piece in L.A.? [UPDATED]

Reader @mrlongsworth Tweeted us this morning with what could be a fifth Banksy to pop up of late, and the second one with the crayon motif. Still not confirmed by Banksy's official website, the wall at Washington Boulevard and Compton Avenue is far south of the street artist's usual Hollywood/Melrose/West Hollywood domain. Do we have yet another Banksy piece to ogle? [UPDATE: It's confirmed. This, and 2 other pieces, are by Banksy]

Banksy's Sunset Blvd. Billboard Taken Down

It was fun while it lasted. Street artist Banky's cheeky "Living the Dream" Mickey and Minnie Mouse billboard on Sunset Boulevard and Crescent Heights, one of at least four pieces that cropped up around town this week by the Oscar-nominated Brit, has been--not surprisingly--taken down.

2 Troublemaking Brits in Westwood: Banksy & Jamie Oliver

When British Chef and TV personality Jamie Oliver set up his "Food Revolution" studios in Westwood, a lot of folks went "Huuuuhhhh?" considering the neighborhood is largely a blend of high-end living and the UCLA college town.

It was inevitable the two would...

Good Grief, Another Banksy!? Charlie Brown in Hollywood

Looks like street artist Banksy is not only very much in town, but also recapturing his youth. First, it was the "Crayola Shooter" in Westwood, and now it's Charlie Brown--a cheeky arsonist version--in Hollywood. The location of "Charlie Brown Firestarter" has been described as "on Sunset Boulveard" and "on an abandoned fire damaged building," (The Pursuitist). These photos came to us via The Dirt Floor, and are used with their permission....

Banksy Getting Busy: Billboards and More. 5 4 Pieces So Far!

Look who/what showed up overnight on this billboard at Sunset and Crescent Heights! Could this be another Banksy?* Wooster Collective says yes. The irreverent Mickey and Minnie seem to fall in line with his other pieces that have shown up in L.A. this week, like the "Crayola Shooter" and the "Charlie Brown Firestarter" which pair childhood icons (crayons, Charlie Brown, now Mickey) with something darker (shooting, arson, booze-fueled lechery). Melrose and Fairfax have a reader...

With Exit Through the Gift Shop (aka the Banksy movie) getting a Best Documentary Oscar nomination in the wee hours of Tuesday morning, in the wee hours one morning a few days later this large piece of street art showed up on La Brea at San Vicente, in the oft-used Mr. Brainwash space.

Banksy-esque Street Art Pops up on Melrose

Photo via unurth.com, used with permission A new piece of street art has appeared on Melrose.

Box Office Review: Ass-Kicked!

The smart money had the fantastic Kick-Ass winning the weekend box-office race after a month of promotion and hot buzz. Good thing people can't bet on movie futures yet, because How to Train Your Dragon experienced a strong surge in its third weekend to best all comers.

Weekend Movie Guide: Kick-Ass!

The months-long wait to see Kick-Ass is almost over! Can't wait! May see it twice this weekend. Sure it may be nihilistic and inappropriate (e.g. the obvious sexualization of a pre-teen Chloe Moretz), but God damn if it doesn't feel full of energy and evil wit. Plus, it features good Nic Cage (as opposed to bad Nic Cage). What I won't see is the astonishingly unnecessary re-make of Death at a Funeral. It begs the...

Video: The Banksy Heist. Sale or Theft? Or Both?

Almost as soon as it went up, it was gone. But did this portion of the elusive Banksy's art get stolen, or sold? JetSet Graffiti was given this video that shows two people slowly removing a chunk of the artwork in broad daylight from the wall of 410 S. La Brea. They also have learned that "it was the infamous Doug Christmas of Ace Gallery in Los Angeles that organized the removal and impending...

Banksy Street Art on La Brea Avenue Already Gone

Photos: Ahem, Banksy is in Town!

In celebration of tonight's U.S. premiere of the Banksy documentary, Exit Through the Gift Shop, here in L.A., the mysterious street artist himself has come to town.

Photos: On the Red Carpet and the Art at Banksy's Movie Premiere

A large crowd gathered last night at the Los Angeles Theatre in downtown for the U.S. premiere of Exit Through the Gift Shop, the documentary film by the elusive and anonymous street artist Banksy (LAist film review forthcoming).

Scenes from Thursday's Downtown Art Walk

Thursday night's Art Walk had throngs of art lovers, food truck lovers and scene-loving Angelenos pack Downtown's art galleries and restaurants. If we had to pick our favorite stops from the night, it would come down to Crewest Gallery on Winston Street with its great Pedals and Prints exhibit (up through April 27) and the vendors in the Art Park (in a parking lot) on Main Street between 4th and 5th streets. The Art Walk's...

Lazarides, The Guy Who Brought Banksy to L.A., is Coming Back for 4 Months of Gallery & Street Art

Art by David Choe The last time British art promoter Lazarides came to Los Angeles, it was a hit, to say the least. It featured the work of the famously elusive Banksy, who also left the gallery behind to hit the streets, installing a British phone booth in Chinatown and a Guantanamo Bay detainee at Disneyland. Later this month, Lazarides is embarking on four months worth of art shows. While Banksy is not part...

Banksy, Shepard Fairey Art Show Slammed with Gallery Goers

Bansky Identified? Does It Matter?

Photo by xxjetlab via LAist Featured Photos on Flickr A week ago Sunday, the London paper, Mail on Sunday, revealed "compelling evidence suggesting" the identity of the famous and anonymous street artist, Banksy, as Robin Gunningham. To date Gunningham nor Banksy's agent or spokesperson, have not confirmed this. And a note from Banksy's on his website says "anyone described as 'good at drawing' doesn't sound like Banksy to me." Banksy frequented Los Angeles and...

LAist Asks: Who is this Street Artist?

Stuck in traffic down Laurel Canyon Blvd. this weekend on the metropolitan side of the hill, we took note of this stencil, below. We can't identify the artist, can you? It looks like Bansky, but sources say no. Blek le Rat was in town, but that's not his. Herakut just opened their show this weekend, but Carmichael Gallery of Contemporary Art owner Seth Carmichael says it was not them and that he noticed this piece...

Blek le Rat opens Subliminal Projects tonight.

Before Banksy and Shepard Fairey there was Blek le Rat. The French street artist is quite possibly the first person to use stencils for graffiti, a style he pioneered to veer away from the NY city tags he had witnessed. His first stencils of life sized rats invaded the streets of Paris in the early 80's. From there he moved to stencils of popular icons of culture and some self portraits. To say he is...

If I Could Put Tai in a Bubble*

Stunts come in all shapes and sizes, but the one planned for next week at the Santa Ana Zoo is absolutely elephantine--at least for one pachyderm named Tai. According to cbs2.com: "Artist Fan Yang plans to briefly envelop the elephant in a giant soapy bubble at the Discovery Science Center in Santa Ana on Tuesday as part of the center's annual Bubblefest." Admittedly a strange stunt--and one that will "set a world record for the...

The title of this article was going to be Moona Lisa. Then I realized I'm not actually 8, but 28. There I am, jumping next to the latest mural by Nick Walker. (Why am I jumping?

Bansky, Banksy, Are You Out There?

LAist contributer Osmany Rodriguez found a few fresh new Banksy paintings near the New Beverly Cinema. As you may already know, Banksy is the elusive guerrilla street artist responsible for some of the most interesting art in the city (not to mention the entire world). He's a trickster figure who never shows his face, but joined Steve Jones in the Indie 103.1 studios earlier this week (that's how we know he's been in L.A....

Brangelina Blow Nearly $400k On Trendy Art About Rich Whites Picnicking; See No Irony

Millionaire beautiful people Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie did a lot more than just browse while attending the latest Banksy show in downtown LA; they scooped up three pieces, including the $226,000 painting "Picnic", which depicts a family of white people eating while several Africans look on hungrily. Some say the husband in the party looks similar to Pitt. But the spending spree didn't end there. According to Star Magazine, and reported by the...

Banksy Strikes Again...

This British phone booth -- or part of it -- was spotted this morning near the intersection of Alameda and Main streets Downtown, across from Philippe the Original.

Banksy Banksied Twice

Earlier today art.blogging.la reported that LA artist Jeff Gillette pulled a Banksy on Banksy by installing a piece of art in the British artist's show near the 10 freeway.

Banksy Sez Paris Too Stupid To Get Joke

Street artist and prankster Banksy, who snuck 500 altered Paris Hilton cds into UK record stores last week, says that the LA heiress is probably too blonde to understand his dry wit, according to PR Inside.
