Danielle Klebes, a street artist with a difference

Wednesday, 24 May, 2017

Artwork by Danielle Klebes

Danielle Klebes is a Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, based artist, and street artist. But she’s not a street artist in the conventional sense. Rather she takes her paintings, or some of them at least, and attaches them to derelict and abandoned buildings. And apparently there they stay, undisturbed for considerable periods, sometimes.

Artwork by 100taur

Toulouse based French artist 100taur, describes his work as being “halfway between innocence and horror”, as he “tirelessly works for the creation of a dark enchanted world”. That seems like a good to way to sum it up to me.

We are all Banksy, says Robert Del Naja of Massive Attack. So there

Tuesday, 6 September, 2016

Rumours have been swirling about in recent days that Robert Del Naja, also known as 3D, of Bristol based trip-hop act Massive Attack, is in fact UK street artist Banksy.

Not only is Del Naja an accomplished musician, he is also a well known visual artist. Then there is the matter of Banksy artworks popping up in places where Massive Attack were touring.

As the group performed in Bristol last Saturday, their first gig in their hometown in eleven years apparently, Del Naja told the audience, “rumours of me being Banksy are greatly exaggerated, we are all Banksy!”

A conclusive denial, if ever there was one. The plot thickens, if you ask me.

New Banksy works at the Jungle Refugee Camp, in Calais, France

Wednesday, 16 December, 2015

Artwork by Banksy

British street artist Banksy appears to have recently visited the Jungle Refugee Camp in Calais, France, and has posted photos of a series of works he created while there, to his website.

Life in the migrant camp, one of the biggest in western Europe, could hardly be called fun, but one point that is being made in these new Banksy works.

I’m not sure how long the images will stay on his website, but you can also see them at Colossal.
