Peace...!

i found this very very REFRESHING  8)



British street artist Banksy is in Los Angeles for his Oscar-nominated film 'Exit Through The Gift Shop' - a documentary which he directed that tells the story of a man's obsession with street art that includes footage of such artists as Shepard Fairey, Invader and Banksy himself - and he hasn't wasted any time making his mark on the streets of LA and of course, causing a bit of a stir.

"one of the most talked about pieces in recent days has been an image of a drunken mickey mouse,
putting his arm around a scantily-clad model, with minnie mouse watching off to the side,
which bansky painted over a billboard advertisement for las vegas company the light group.
situated above norm's 76 petrol station located along the sunset strip, the art piece was removed today by the billboard's owner, CBS outdoor, even though the garage employees had offered to pay 10 000 USD to let it stay. CBS now claims that they own the bansky artwork, and there is no word on what is going to be done with it".

you just gotta love it  ;D


the forums are having quite a field day regarding the piece, whether its ART or VANDALISM and so forth....just thought id share it with youl too...!
