Exclusive: An Interview with Banksy

By Keegan Hamilton Wednesday, Oct 9 2013

http://www.villagevoice.com/2013-10-09/art/banksy-better-out-than-in-new...

"Confidential."

That was the beguiling subject of an e-mail seemingly randomly addressed to the Village Voice in mid-September.

"I represent the artist Banksy," the message began, "and I would like to talk to you at your earliest convenience." The name and phone number of a British publicist followed. There were no further details or explanation. It was mysterious and intriguing. The secretive graffiti artist had been silent since last year, when his distinctive stencils appeared in London during the Olympics. Because Banksy rarely grants interviews, the cryptic message also felt like the prelude to an elaborate practical joke.

A few minutes of sleuthing confirmed the identity of the publicist, Jo Brooks, who represents several British artists (not to mention Fatboy Slim), and turned up evidence of her professional relationship with the elusive stencil master. A subsequent message from Brooks revealed more: a draft of a press release announcing that Banksy was on the verge of unveiling an audacious new project: The artist intended to create one new piece on the streets of New York each day in October, a "unique kind of art show" titled "Better Out Than In." Billed with the tagline "an artists [sic] residency on the streets of New York," the show was to include "elaborate graffiti, large scale street sculpture, video installations, and substandard performance art."

Brooks promised the Voice an exclusive interview with Banksy, who "feels an affinity with people who provide quality content for free on street corners."

“She found us. She came in here and asked for permission. She’s taken over,” said Anissa Malady, the center’s librarian, who has watched the artist’s work evolve for the past two years.

“She is definitely a San Francisco eccentric,” Malady said. “I’ve never seen any other street artist in high heels.”

She’s known as Eclair Bandersnatch – the last name is a fictional creature in several Lewis Carroll works, elusive and hard to catch. They’re traits that San Francisco’s Bandersnatch also possesses.

15 Oct : MBW "Pop on Paper" (London)

We are excited to announce the arrival of Mr Brainwash and 40 fresh works on paper from Los Angeles to our dear old Westbank Gallery. This will be an unmissable exhibition set during the time of Frieze. If you can get yourself down to the preview night from 6-10pm on Tuesday 15th October, 2 days before the official opening of Frieze and Moniker Art Festivals, make sure you send an email right away to guestlist@londonwestbank.com. We will be showing some completely fresh works (the paint will have barely dried on them) on both floors of the gallery as well as some revisitations of his classic Mohammed Ali and Madonna and Britney Spears images but on a larger scale and on paper (also freshly painted).

Banksy Painting Up NYC for Month of Oct.

Attn. New Yorkers, drop everything and run - RUN - to Banksy's twitter feed (or possibly other street art Tweets) to see where he strikes next. Do it NOW... before it gets stolen, tagged over, or buffed. Quit your job if you have to.

Or... shrug.

Banksy presents:

Better Out than In

An Artists Residency on the Streets of New York

[hmm.... why did he drop the apostrophe and make artist plural? - Ed.]

A pair of British artists have created this stunning installation of 9,000 silhouettes on a D-Day Landings beach to mark international Peace Day.

The project, named, 'The Fallen' is a tribute to the civilians, German forces and Allies who lost their lives during the Operation Neptune landing on June 6, 1944.

The design was the brainchild of Jamie Wardley, 33, and Andy Moss, 50.

Together with a team of volunteers the pair travelled to Arromanches beach, Normandy, to create the silhouettes, which were individually drawn into the sand.

Juxtapoz chats with Adam Feibelman

Original found here: http://www.juxtapoz.com/illustration/adam-feibelman-do-with-me-as-you-wi...

Juxtapoz recently sat down with Adam to discuss his daily antics and process for his upcoming show at Guerrero Gallery. Hannah Stouffer in conversation with Adam Feibelman:

Hannah Stouffer: Hey Adam, what are you wearing?

Adam Feibelman: I am currently topless in my hot summer time studio. I do have bottoms on, though, which are jeans.

HS Tell me about your process for your upcoming show 'Do With Me What You Will' at Guerrero Gallery- how long did the series take for you to put together? How do you feel your work has evolved at this point from exhibitions in the past??

AF About a year ago, Andres from Guerrero Gallery approached me with the opportunity, knowing that my work takes a long time to make. I think he wanted to give me some elbow room, time to fully realize an idea, and fill such a large space; so, I have been working on this series for a year. In terms of evolution, the large amount of time let me try new things, ideas for techniques were put into practice. It afforded me the time to really sink into some personally ambitious work, like a view of looking up at redwood trees that took seven months to cut. They are called "The Love Songs."

HS Do you typically show both the paper stencil and the final, layered painting?

AF Yes, a couple of years ago it started to become clear to me that people who were looking at the paintings weren't fully understanding of the process; I felt there needed to be another level of deconstruction. That is when I started cutting apart, collaging, and sewing back together the "tools" (stencils). I felt that it was the best next step for me.
