A short, Banksy-approved documentary on Banksy’s visit to/art attack on NYC last year.
Jamie Hewlett (Gorillaz, Tank Girl) has collaborated with Pretty Green and Teenage Cancer Trust to create these three limited edition t-shirts to raise money for charity (available here).
With a white guitar as the stand out symbol, the designs created by Jamie Hewlett depict classic guitar poses inspired by three rock idols. Featuring Phil Lynott, hell raising frontman of Thin Lizzy, the legendary Pete Townshend of The Who and the original ‘modfather’ Paul Weller the collaboration plays on both Teenage Cancer Trust and Pretty Green’s rich music heritage.
I love the idea that one thing can be different for different people. Everything’s that way…and then there are films or writings that you could read once and then ten years later read again and get way more from. You’ve changed; the work stays the same. But suddenly it’s got way more meaning for you, depending on where you are. I like things that have a kernel of something in them. They have to be abstract. The more concrete they are, the less likely that this thing will happen. The maker has to feel it and know it in a certain way and be honest to it. Every single decision passes through this one person, and if they judge it and do it correctly, then the work holds together for that one person, and they feel it’s honest and it’s right. And then it’s released, and from that point on there’s not one thing you can do about it. You can talk about it - try to defend it or try to do this or that. It doesn’t work. People still hate it. They hate it. It doesn’t work for them. And you’ve lost them. You’re not going to get them back. Maybe twenty years later they’ll say, “My God! I was wrong.” Or maybe, twenty years later, they’ll hate it when at first they loved it. Who knows? It’s out of your control. —David Lynch
I don’t want to produce a work of art that the public can sit and suck aesthetically…. I want to give them a blow in the small of the back, to scorch their indifference, to startle them out of their complacency.
