Flower power by Banksy

    Newer Older

    Reminds me of my views on that commercial rip off known as Valentines Day :-)

    One of the Banky images in the collection of his work, titled Wall and piece, which was a present from www.flickr.com/photos/solarider/220092303/. Ok their parents might have had something to do with it :-)

    I snapped this with my camera using the light from my study table lamp. For more Banksy on Flickr see the Banksy groups, in particular http://www.flickr.com/groups/banksy/ and also check out the banksy tag.

    Also see the Banksy section on the excellent Art of the State site.

    And now for something completely different:

    Satan: So if we're just all biological accidents, how do you explain love?
    Dave: Love is a complex of perfectly concrete natural impulses.
    Satan: A survival mechanism?
    Dave: Exactly
    Satan: In that case I can understand why you love Edie but why does Edie love you. Any purely biological unit attempting to mechanise it's own survival would seem likely to pass you by. I'm sorry you're less than reliable.

    From Hal Hartley's The Book of Life

      I am not a big fan of this, Sometimes its necessary throw a breakor molotov cocktail, cuz flowers just won't solve anything. Very romantic idea tho.

      My name is Mihaela and I am the chapter coordinator of the Zeitgeist Movement Romania and I would like to use some of his gorgeous works on our non profit & pacifist new website. I already sent a request on www.banksy.co.uk but still got no answer :-). Can anyone tell me where I can find a free download or if his pictures are copyright protected? Any answer will be appreciated( mihaella@writeme.com)

      Thank you in advance,

      peace, wisdom and a wonderful life ;),
