In 2012, graffiti artist Tilt took on a project at the Au Vieux Panier Hotel in Marseille, France. Tilt was welcomed to paint a room in this hotel in his classic graffiti style. The end product is this room divided perfectly in half by Tilt’s sick graffiti and crisp white walls, which they aptly dubbed “The Panic Room”.
Banksy seems to be hard at work as of late. Yesterday he unveiled his 3rd new piece in about a month. Banksy’s latest work is a recreation of artist Johannes Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring masterpiece. Banksy substituted the pearl earring for a yellow alarm box located on the wall. The unveiling comes on the heels of a Banksy arrest hoax.
Now, we’re big fans for graffiti at Sneakhype (see here). But this is not the kind of art that we co-sign. There has not been any light shed on the situation just yet, but in Seattle, someone decided it would be a good idea to paint a penis on the hood of this $2 million Bugatti. So disrespectful. Thoughts?
The ever-elusive Banksy made his return to the street art scene today. He took to his website to unveil his latest piece of work. This is the first we’ve heard of Banksy since his month long “Better Out Than In” exhibition, which took place all over New York City. His new piece is obviously poking fun at our obsession with smartphones.
