The artworld is always evolving, and there is a never-ending appetite for development. Even street art, a relatively young art movement, is now at the epicenter of innovation. As you might have already heard, Banksy painting “Love Is in the Air” was cut into 10,000 separate NFT pieces to be sold online. One of the most famous Banksy artworks was fractionated by Particle, a team of leading figures in the world of blockchain, art, and technology. The initial sale had to begin on January 10 and would last through today, January 14.
If you pay attention to the development of contemporary street art, you probably know that today’s situation has never been better. Little by little, “vandalism” is transforming into a full-fledged form of art. Throughout the last several years, many talented people have joined the streets to express their opinions with the help of stencils. It is hard to argue that Banksy is a beacon for many beginning painters. Not only is he known for some controversial artworks, but he is also a big popularizer of what he is doing. To prove it, let’s look at the evolution of Banksy art in 2020 – 2021. You will be surprised to hear how much has already been done.

Even one of the most sacred festivals of the year cannot make the famous Bristol artist maintain public and creative silence.

With time, Banksy Christmas art is becoming more and more relevant since it features hard truths that some people are still unwilling to swallow.
