    Banksy in Jakarta ?

    This made me wonder....the concrete balls are scattered about for sitting on.

    Re: Banksy in Jakarta ?

    Banksy is a UK street artist who was one of the first to use stencils. Much imitated, never matched, for his wit and humour. I would doubt very much that this is a 'Banksy' - but perhaps inspired by him. Good shot though.

    Actually, Banksy inspires quite a lot of urban artists .. here is one (artist unknown) who is explicit in his admiration!

    Cheers

    Its O.K.,Frog ,

    (Mike,we must have posted at the same time)

    - I just got into Banksy's work,last year,after seeing some of it online.He is an Brit. graffitti artist whose work is witty and thought provoking -.well worth a look.

    The painted 5-a-side goal net positioned behind the concrete ball (about up to my knee in height) made me think of how he used existing stuff like telephone boxes,signs and stains on walls in his work.
