…Space Invaders are taking over San Diego?

The Space Invaders Walk

If you’re in the San Diego area, be sure to check out The Space Invaders Walk, a virtual tour through the city that’s led by Invader, a famous street artist who makes an appearance in Bansky’s new film, Exit Through The Gift Shop.

In addition to creating your own space invader, you can also keep an eye out for various pieces by Invader that have been stuck up around the city, all in anticipation of the group show that’s opening at Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego called “Viva la Revolucion: A Dialogue with the Urban Landscape”.

…It’s Movie Monday: Cans Festival Time-Lapse?

Cans Festival

The Cans Festival was Banksy’s street art event that took place in London a few months back.

Now, there’s an official time-lapse video of the festival coming together, and it’s a fantastic look at some alternative art coming together and taking shape.

…Banksy wants you to have his art for free?

Banksy What Are You Looking At

Banksy, the quite famous graffiti artist, got a little tired of people selling bootleg copies of his work on eBay and profiting off of those who didn’t know better, so he’s decided to give it all away. On his website, he has posted a selection of large, high-res images of many of his most famous pieces for you to download, print out and enjoy. RIAA, are you listening?
