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.

Palmitas, photo by the German Crew

The Palmitas district, of the Mexican city of Pachuca, has been transformed into something rather spectacular, thanks to the efforts of a number of organisations working together as the German Crew. Some two hundred homes are now part of what must surely be one of the largest murals in the world.

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.

Melbourne street mural by Rone

Melbourne based street artist Rone has, on the side wall of a nine storey building in downtown Melbourne, created what is said to be Australia’s largest street mural produced by one person. Going by the evidence that looks to be a pretty sound claim.
