Review: “Marks & Stencils”, feat. Banksy

26 Nov ’10

We’ve been down to Soho and taken a look at the new Pictures on Walls show.  It is really two shows, “Marks and Stencils”, a collection of originals and prints from a range of great street artists including Banksy and “My Everyday Life” which is French street artist Dran’s solo show.  My Everyday Life by Dran takes up the entire bottom floor of the show with Marks and Stencils primarily occupying the top level. Some of the highlights from Marks and Stencils are below.  We’ve dealt with Dran, My Everyday Life in a seperate post.

Not too impressed – what I always liked about Banksy was his wit. This stuff all looks a bit half-baked crank it out. His stuff will always sell because he has built up his fame and notoriety (all credit to him for that) but smacks a bit of ‘buy a piece of cool’ rather than buy a great piece of communication. Just one guy’s opinion…
