Banksy in NY

Hey, I don't know if you remember the days of Santa's Ghetto, Pictures on Walls and some guy called Banksy from the early 2000's? I remember being a keen young thing and schlepping to the west end (this was before East London was East London) to see the street art on show at Santa's Ghetto.

Anyway, since then Mr Banksy has made a very, very big name for himself, and is currently spending some time in New York, promising a new artwork a day. They've been popping up all over the city, and the selfies and hilarious photographic moments haven't stopped.

Better still, Banksy decided to sell some of his artworks for $60 a piece (signed) on the streets of New York, but only managed to sell a handful. I guess art imitating life imitating art isn't so easy to sell (think all of those rip off Banksy canvases you've seen...)

Things Come Apart

Todd McLellan's Things Come Apart has been entertaining me for months so I thought I should share it's splendour with all of you. 

It's a coffee table book that really packs a punch. Todd has been taking things apart for years and now has made a beautiful book of everyday objects from then and now, all beautifully opened up, laid out and photographed. Highlights include the digital watch, the analogue watch and a grand piano.
