raskalls asked: How did banksy get popular in the first place?

banksystreetart:

Good and difficult question, it definitely grew steadily and not with a sudden hyped picture on the internet although I must add that internet definitely had a big positive impact on street art in general.

Banksy switched from regular graffiti to stencil graffiti in +/- 1997, and since then his popularity has been grown day by day. I personally believe it’s because of the right message in the right time period since his art is mainly on anti-war, anti-capitalist or anti-establishment and apparently a lot of people shared his opinion on those topics in that time.

In 2003 he did an exposition with Shepard Fairey (also a huge name in street art world) and it only attracted 1,500 visitors. Afterwards he produced a quantity of spoof British £10 notes and those were quite popular, followed with another exposition called Barely Legal (with the infamous pink painted elephant). These last two interventions got huge press coverage and were picked up by the public very well.

I hope that answers your question.

Last Night in Ferguson (9.29-9.30): Protesters gathered yet again, in a truly uplifting night of action and calls for justice. It wasn’t all sunshine and roses, due to the usual antagonism from the police, but it was solidarity at it’s finest. #staywoke #farfromover

Keep up with the action tonight. Follow the Argus Livestreams and/or BellaAiko from Occupy Oakland.
