Well, here we are. I never actually made it this far last year because I didn’t finish my posts, but now here I am and it feels good. Also, happy birthday to me!
Here is everything I used over the course of this project:
Wikipedia article: The general wikipedia article for Banksy. This includes a general overview of his career, information on the possibility of his identity, notable artworks, technique, social and political themes, and his critics.
Banksy’s Webpage: Banksy’s website, includes photostreams of public arts, photostream of sketches and drawings, information about films Banksy has produced and directed, and Q+A.
Wikipedia article (Graffiti): General information on various types of graffiti, legality, etc.
Exit Through the Gift Shop: Film directed by Banksy, discusses works both public and private by Banksy and other street artists.
/r/graffiti: Subreddit about graffiti, less focused on art and more on ‘tagging’ (the act of painting your name or graffiti handle in public spaces. Interview source.
/r/streetart: More general subreddit of other types of street art such as stencil art, wheat paste, and 3D installations.
