INSPIRATION






Hey! I'm J Baby and I'm a new writer to DTY. I've been reading this blog ever since it was started, I check up on it daily to see what's new so I thought "why not write for them?". I'm interested in a ton of different things but I thought for my first blog I'd tell you all about someone I love...

Banksy! He's a graffiti artist out of Bristol, England. What I like most about him is he's pseudo-anonymous. No one knows exactly who he is or what he looks like. Most of his work is done in stencils which gets him in and out really fast. His work is comedic, political, and just makes you think. Half the stuff he does I sit back and think "how did he come up with that?!?!". Like in the picture you see above with the pig, that's just from a hole in the wall. Crazyness!

He doesn't sell any original prints or anything but if you'd like to see more of his work check out his website

"Think outside the box, collapse the box, and take a f***ing sharp knife to it" - Banksy

LOL that's okay I think I know which one you're talking about. I heard about him last year too from a friend of mine who tags. I've never seen anything like Banksy's his work, he's dope.
