Banksy


One of the famous Banksy's graffiti, which the people of Bristol voted to keep.


Another typical satirical Banksy's graffiti, or as he likes to call "outdoors art".

An anonymous artist, or a glorified vandal according to city councils that have to clean up after this guy. Either way, Banksy is a British graffiti artist whose identity and biographical details are uncertain. Yet his "interventions" has left a mark on the underground world of many cities, which are documented and exhibited in many galleries that are visited by the likes of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Banksy's work is mostly satirical pieces of art on topics such as politics, culture, and ethics, presented in a distinctive stenciling technique combined with some catchy graffiti writings.


A excellent idea that Microsoft can use against Mac, to strike back at their stupid "Mac vs PC" campain.

Hey! Now what's wrong with MACs?

I'm enjoying your blog by the way...

I don't see many comments, but anyway thx for sharing.

I'm happy to find a sudanese likewise-architect with mutual interests and a common appreciation of art

Thanks for passing by B...

I am a strong pc enthausiast and have to say that the cheap shots that mac were taking against pc were very irritating :p

Anyhow hopefully you will find more of Sudanese and other Arabic architecture as long as modern architects are brave enough to explore new ideas.

"Arabic architecture"...hmmm..I wonder what exactly that might be, bash mohandis?

And is Sudan "Arab"? Now we move to the bIG qs..

Arabic architecture... hmmm... well I don't know if this is scientifically proven but I like to think that Arabs invented the light filtering windows, or the mashrarabiya.

So I guess wherever I see a screen in front of a window I can't help but think of it as an Arabic contribution to the architecture of the world.

What do you think?
