Street art is one of my favorite art forms, and has inspired my own work tremendously. Banksy obviously is a huge pioneer in the street art world, this Russian artist, P183, has been dubbed ‘Moscow’s Banksy’ for obvious reasons. He emulates, maybe borders on copying?, Banksy and creates an interesting commentary often about industrialization. What do you all think? Too similar or just as brilliant?
And MOMA has a new addition to the fourth floor, James Rosenquist’s F-111, ‘ a monumental 23-panel piece, is being exhibited for the first time since 2006 in the original 1965 configuration that the artist created for his debut show at Leo Castelli’s 77th Street gallery.’ It’s huge and breathtaking. Sometimes bigger isn’t always better but in this case helps accentuate it’s message. Here are F-111 (first image) and some of his other great works
