Streetart


Found on the streets of London, is what’s said to be world-renowned British street artist Banksy’s latest piece. The piece features Union Jack flags draped across the wall, and applied to the artist’s signature stencil of a child working on a sewing machine. According to locals, the piece appeared early hours in the morning at Turnpike Lane, at the side of Poundland on Whymark Avenue. Created in line with the royal Diamond Jubilee celebration to mark Queen Elizabeth II’s 60-year reign, it’s said that the piece hopes to put spotlight on child labor issues. According to Hookedblog, the location, style and cut of the stencil is highly likely to be Banksy’s work.

Portuguese street artist Vhils makes portraits by hacking, drilling and ripping into buildings. His first monograph has just been published by Gestalten and contains some striking imagery of his work. Love this. Excellent street art.

This is a cool idea.

Red Bull is sponsoring “Street Art View“, an online collection of places on Google Street View where street art is present. Anyone who come across street art on their way can tag it on the website and help build the biggest art collection in the world.

The Street Art View site was developed at LODUCCA, Sao Paulo, Brazil. (via The Inspiration Room)
