Yesterday, on November 25, the United States and Canada, as well as other countries, celebrated Thanksgiving Day, probably one of the most beloved family holidays of the year. One of the ideas of the celebration is sharing gratitude with people you value and love. No one would argue that doing kindness is one of the ways to demonstrate how thankful you are to others. But what makes people kind in the first place? Let’s try to look into the matter from an unusual angle and see how original Banksy art can actually make you a kinder person.
Banksy doesn’t usually arrange exhibitions. The street artist either sells his artworks online or takes over the entire Bristol Museum to show his pieces. However, you can find and buy Banksy paintings in different parts of the world. For example, you could do so in Austin, the capital of Texas, United States. There, from May 15 – July 11, 2021, the international art gallery West Chelsea Contemporary organized an art exhibit “Icons & Vandals.” The exhibition was dedicated to works by some of the most influential art innovators. Among them, there were Banksy paintings for sale, which was a big surprise for local art lovers.
Another day, another piece of interesting news. It has been recently stated that one Banksy original rat graffiti was painted over by Christopher Walken during the shooting of the TV show The Outlaws. It wasn’t, though, an attempt to mock the iconic contemporary street artist. Official Banksy sources confirmed that the anonymous mural painter sprayed his trademark rat on a wall specifically for the set. That’s how he left the mark, a sort of Easter egg, in the final episode of the show.
The fine art industry hinges on cooperation and partnership. Art institutions, private art galleries, art collectors, and artists – street artists included – unite to organize grandiose art shows, fairs, and events. One such fruitful collaboration sparked between the NYC-based art moving company Fine Art Shippers and the annual art show Asian Art in London (AAL). Let’s see how an art moving company has become a sponsor of the fresh edition of the international event.
