Sickboy. . .

Still not entirely sure what the Temple resembles (I'm off to read his new website where I may or may not find out)

However and whatever, as per usual, I care not for explanation, reason, cause or anything like it.

It just looks the chuffin nuts :o) The Colab with Sweet Toof and Cyclops recently are hopefully the first of many. Lots of lush stuff to come from them all if they do or not either way. Long may it continue...every damn where!

Cept Hits Sclatter Street. . .With a vengance!

Fairly hot on the heels of the new Eine going up (it may have even been at the same time) This new piece by Cept went up on his fave spot in East London. Am gutted that I haven't documented the spot better than I have as there has been some amazing stuff over the years.

So for now, you just have to make do with the ones I have!

This one was particularly interesting and cool, changed from the FULL colour version above, to the erased version below.

The Message where "Dont believe the type" is said "One day a real rain will come. . . " followed by this at the other end. . . .

Eine - Scary

Scary is how quickly he finished it. . . it was all still outlines yesterday afternoon. This quote from the man himself ( from )

"So 3 weeks ago i started a new painting and finally after more problems then i care to share its done, all morning climbing up and down ladders using a bin bag of spray cans, normally once i got the photo's job done, but now i have this thing. Sit in front of a computer joining photo's together, merging layers, changing contrast, image size this, save that, crop, image this, crop and size Ahhhhh.The thing is when i read the emails from people all over the world who have visited my site it makes it easier to do with blisters and a backache "

Adam Neate

I really cant wait to see this show in the flesh. The stories have already been told far and wide of how ridiculous the buy to sell market is flooding the street art (call it what you want) market. Where will it all end? (and I really stopped caring for being mad about chasing the next big print a long long time ago (when the price rose above £250 a pop - but it's a phase a lot of us have all gone through)

All we will really know is that the real up turn in all of this didn't start with Banksy anymore. . .Mr Neate is pissing all over him from a great height.
So in honour of him, and by rather bizarre coincidence (posted spot on at 2am) I hadn't seen this print until searching for it now but knew the title and decided to come and post something about the show. I searched and found Elms Lesters - the gallery where it's at

And found this :

Banksy vs Warhol exhibition

Have been waiting ages for this, and thankfully I won't have to wait too much longer.

10 August - 1 September 2007

A face to face show of classic drawings and paintings by Andy Warhol set against the infamous graffiti work of Banksy.

Campbell’s or Tesco? Grace Kelly, Muhammad Ali, Winston Churchill, Mick Jagger, Queen Elizabeth, The Beatles, Smiley Man police statue, Andy Warhol himself and others make for a potent cocktail of celebrity, satire and voyeurism.

The Gallery at The Hospital, Endell Street, London WC2. Admission is free.
