Dominic Baker, in his excellent Aestheticons piece a few weeks ago, cast an artist’s view over the work and influence of the iconic street artist “Banksy”. See Dominic’s piece here Banksy
Dominic’s piece drew an amazing reaction from our Aestheticons’ audience, who clearly enjoyed not only his excellent study but also revealed a profound interest in Banksy, his work and rather sadly, his identity.
Tantalising pieces appear in publications all over the world seeking to unmask Banksy – today’s Daily Mail being a typical example – here Banksy at last unmasked
Why? I am not sure what difference it would make. I like the guerrilla even anonymous nature of his work, often under cover of darkness, a new and challenging piece of art is born.
