Banksy's shredding prank worked in rehersals, but still punked the elite art-collecting world IRL.
I had a fun evening helping Mona Caron cut out the stencil she designed for this mural. We had tried before. A while back, I was going to cut/paint another stencil for another public art project of hers, but the muraled utility box was taken off the streets before the stencil could get painted. In the best way, these utilitarian stencils allow the viewer of the mural to see it at its best angle. Mona painted this ribwort plaintain weed in a way that makes it look flat on an unflat surface. Watch the video, and the stencil marks the spot to stand and see the magic!
