Lasting Impressions

Last week, English artist Robert Banks (better known as Banksy) was in the news again. According to an incredibly funny article in the Guardian, Banks smuggled his newest creation--a dead rat in a glass-fronted box--into the British Natural History Museum. Apparently, the "work" was actually exhibited for several hours until the staff caught on.

As a sub-genre of graffiti art and "street art," Banksy has largely earned his reputation for his stencil work. A recent week in New York also reminded me how much I like this form. (If you didn't notice, the cop is a stencil too.)
