Banksy Cave Art

April 17, 2010 Art, Contemporary, Street No Comments

In honor of Banksy’s latest film playing in the city, I’d like to share a photo (credit goes to some guy off of flickr) of one of my favorite works from him.

This finely preserved example of primitive art dates from the Post-Catatonic era.

The artist responsible is known to have created a substantial body of work across South East of England under the moniker Banksymus Maximus but little else is known about him.

Most art of this type has unfortunately not survived. The majority is destroyed by zealous municipal officials who fail to recognise the artistic merit and historical value of daubing on walls.

It was originally unveiled to the public in 2005 at the British Museum. You can read about it >>here<<. LOL.
