Seen: Banksy - Barely Legal (09.15.06)

The show everybody's talking about.  The enigmatic urban artist and prankster with no peer.  Banksy. Barely Legal.  Downtown LA wherehouse.  Quite possibly the show of the year.  I got there around 2:30 on Friday.  Just right - not too crowded but plenty of people enjoying themselves.  Highlights?  Some might say the police van or the painted live pink elephant or the stenciled semi outside, or the flying gas-mask clad spraypainting angel...  Those were amazing but I myself prefer the large stenciled canvases that squarely take aim at almost every aspect of western society -- some are stark and other works made laugh.  Of course, I did my thing and snapped pic after pic -- most everything should be here.  Warning: If you live in LA, make the trip out.  It's more than worth it.

Brilliant stuff, definitely puts the art back in art, have always loved his stuff, would actually like to see it in person some day, and an exhibition like this would be awesome!

One request however, Is there any chance that the author of this page could upload the original file of the artwork at the top of the page, of the trolley hunting scene, I would love to use this as a desktop. Hopefully this will be possible... many thanks!!

Banksy is our hero. He's a real artist and he gets to do whatever he wants, in the streets, galleries, and sometimes museums!

Thanks for the pics. Like the elephant...do you know what kind of material he uses...?
