Banski


LifeUrbanist

One of the most appreciated graffiti artists worldwide is the Brittish pseudo-anonymous Bansky, possibly named Robert Banks.

Starting off as a butcher, Bansky became preoccupied with this urban art form during the great Bristol aerosol boom of the late 1980s. Most of Bansky’s works combine graffiti writing with a distinctive stencilling technique and have a strong satirical character, tackling politics, ethics and culture. His works have appeared in London but also in various cities across the world.

When discussion his technique, Banksy commented “I use whatever it takes. Sometimes that just means drawing a moustache on a girl’s face on some billboard, sometimes that means sweating for days over an intricate drawing. Efficiency is the key”.

You are likely to found humorous drawings occasionally combined with slogans in his creations, with strong messages against war, capitalism, establishment. The stars in the art of the graffiti artists are monkeys and rats, policemen, soldiers, children and the elderly.

Reidar Finsrud

Reidar Finsrud is today counted by many as one of the worlds most versatile artists. He works within the majority of thinkable formats and techniques. Painting, drawing, graphic and sculpturing. He does lectures at many topics, and has held his own art school since 1975. He's been thorough the fields of new and modern thinking, especially around technical inventions and industrial design. The technical insight of Mr. Finsrud is shown throughout machines like his handmade grand scaled graphic printing press, and all the machinery in context with his own techniques of casting. The now world known Finsrud Perpetual Mobile from 1996, came as a climax in the line of his numerous technical constructions.

Kenneth Snelson

From Wikipedia

Kenneth Snelson (born June 29, 1927) is a contemporary sculptor and photographer. His sculptural works, composed of flexible and rigid components, are arranged according to the idea of tensegrity.

Snelson claims that Buckminster Fuller, who was once his professor, took credit for Snelson's discovery of the concept of tensegrity. Fuller gave the idea its name, combining 'tension' and 'structural integrity.' The geodesic domes which Fuller popularized are the most commonly known structures whose composition depends on tensegrity.

The height and strength of Snelson's sculptures, which are often delicate in appearance, depend on the tension between rigid pipes and flexible cables. This is achieved through "a win-win combination of push and pull."
