Banksy exhibition a success

During the Bank Holiday weekend, 9,500 people a day descended on Leake Street, near Waterloo Station, to see the Cans Festival, the subculture blockbuster of graffiti art organised by Banksy. Nearly 500 of them added their own stencils to the pieces by Banksy and the 38 other artists from around the world he invited to take part. And although the exhibition officially closed at the end of the Bank Holiday, the paintings are all still up there on the walls – and a steady stream of people has been turning up to see them.

Sotheby’s results show that art has kept its value even as times are bad, he said, with buyers likely seeing it as a better investment as the real estate and stock market suffer losses.

At the Glasgow Gallery of Modern Art was a Jim Lambie exhibition. The floor was covered with black and white sticky tape; LPs…

He says “I paint what moves me – sexiness” He also admits to making mistakes with licensing his images and wants to stick to selling prints and posters rather than umbrellas.He has published a new book featuring his three exquisitely furnished homes, in Kirkcaldy, London and Nice; his painting techniques; his continuing obsession with women of a certain type.
