Have you been following the Banksy debate? Our former Chair, Paul Gough, wrote the book on Banksy and makes the following comment:
"There are three ways you can tell a genuine Banksy - first it will be featured on the official website, and presently the only image that pops up on the Banksy site (http://banksy.co.uk/index2.html) is this one of the two lovers peering at their mobile phones; nothing else appears on the site. Secondly, Banksy's stencils have a very particular quality of stencilling; the paint is feathered on, white is used as well as black, and Banksy uses mid-tone greys in a way that few other urban street artists can manage; thirdly, context is important and Banksy may be sending us a message that the Broadplain Trust, which caters for children with special educational needs, is in trouble and needs urgent financial support. This is his way of acting as a silent sponsor"
You can pop into Bristol Museum and see the piece this weekend on your way to the RWA!
