a quite different banksy

Being an internationally famous artist with quite strong left-wing political leanings, not the washed up rabid right wing politico that New Zealanders might associate with that name.

I ran across a link to his work over on Anarchogeek (who has simply the coolest signature graphic ever, also a Banksy piece – I’d show it here but you’d be better off reading the blog for yourself).

Anyway, Banksy’s the bloke who hit the news recently for his series of exhibits he placed in various museums and art galleries around the world. Like the beetle armed with sidewinder missiles he put into the Hall of Biodiversity at the American Museum of Natural History.

More recently, as noted on Anarchogeek, he’s apparently been in Palestine making some fantastic alterations to the wall.

View and enjoy.
