Banksy, a woman? Sure why not?

Thursday, 13 November, 2014

Something I’d not thought of before… if the identity of UK street artist Banksy remains unknown, what’s to say Banksy isn’t a woman, rather than a man, which is more commonly assumed?

During the very first interview that Banksy gave to The Guardian, another figure was present (“Steve,” Banksy’s agent). Another figure is always present, says Canadian media artist Chris Healey, who has maintained since 2010 that Banksy is a team of seven artists led by a woman – potentially the same woman with long blonde hair who appears in scenes depicting Banksy’s alleged studio in “Exit Through the Gift Shop”. Although Healey won’t identify the direct source for his highly specific claim, it’s at least as believable as the suggestion that Banksy is and always has been a single man.

It would be nice to think that the streets of our cities and towns didn’t… develop pot holes, but when – or if – they do, shouldn’t we all adopt Chicago based artist Jim Bachor’s solution for dealing with them?

Every ant nest is a work of art in the making

Friday, 7 November, 2014

Live/Work by Brad Troemel

New York based artist Brad Troemel, and his “Live/Work” installations, turn ants into sculptors, by placing colonies into clear plexiglass cartridges, filled with a nutritious gel, leaving them to create sculptures as they go about building tunnels in these nests.

And if you happen to be in New York City, you can see Troemel’s ants in action, at the Tomorrow Gallery, until the end of November.

Tuesday, 28 October, 2014
