29 Jul Word on the street: Banksy in Africa
The guys at We-Are-Awesome got the scoop on legendary and anonymous street artist Banksy’s visit to Africa. I thought I’d repost the news just in case you missed it on their site yesterday. Apparently the artworks were done earlier this year in Mali stretching from Bamako to Timbuktu. Rumours are circulating that he has also been in Cairo. There was some speculation that it was an admirer of his style that created the pieces rather than Banksy himself. But the work being uploaded onto his site has been taken as confirmation that it is really him. See here. The Peaches Geldof one is a personal favourite but news is that it has been partially painted over and tagged by more than a few local artists trying to claim it as theirs.
Thanks WAA for the lead!
