Almost as soon as reports of a new Banksy in Hastings came in, local observers feared it could be victim of the buff of Hastings Borough Council. Well worry not. Hastings Observer reports that the piece will be granted a reprieve:
Councillor Jay Kramer, deputy leader of Hastings Borough Council, said: “I think this is great.
It’s been a while, but it appears Banksy’s back putting up, on home soil no less.
This piece has just been captured in Hastings, which EINE calls home.
Banksy’s been quiet of late by his standards, but that silent spell might have been broken over in Portland, US. Either that or there’s a very accomplished impostor at work, judge for yourself ..
Most notably, there’s this blue rain NOLA that just went up.
This photo was taken by Tim F.S. Brown, who spotted it at [...]
By now you may well have heard that Banksy was amongst the artists who donated a piece to join the Rooftop Burner Fund to aid friend Rowdy, who lost everything when his house, including his studio, recently burnt down.
Banksy’s donation came in the form of a unique version of his NOLA print, originally released [...]
This was a pretty big week for auctions featuring solid Banksy originals. Bonhams held their Vision 21 sale at Knightsbridge on Wednesday, while Sotheby’s had their Contemporay Art Day Auction the previous day. Often, these sales unearth some rarely seem gems from the hands of private collectors, and this week’s auctions were no exception.
Perhaps most [...]
Banksy hasn’t hit UK shores for a little while, but he still hasn’t broken with tradition with an appearance at Glastonbury. Back in 2007, he created a portable toilet sculpture as well as that police stop and search piece, along with many confirmed and unconfirmed sightings before and after.
Fast forward to 2010

In the aftermath that followed Banksy’s visit to New York, the destruction of a couple of his pieces was caught on camera.
Now, the creation of one may have come to light.
Much of the UK press claimed Banksy was caught on CCTV in London recently, and as initial suspicions confirmed, this was a fake. This time [...]
Banksy’s homepage had another update, including a couple of gems not seen before. Here are the all new Banksys from the update that we haven’t already documented here.
First up, in Brooklyn.
This one seemed to pass by almost unnoticed by the internet until appearing on Banksy’s site, give or take a grainy Twitpic a couple of [...]
These days, it seems no sooner has a Banksy gone up, it gets either cut from the wall to be resold, buffed, reworked, or “vandalised” (as much as you can vandalise vandalism). Banksy’s latest stop on his US tour, New York was no exeption.
The culpit in this case seems to be a tagger going by [...]
