Escape Monday: With Satirical Art

satirical-art-pawel-kuczynski-19It’s been a long-ass time since I posted last, I’m going to try to make up for the shocking lack of posts by NAILING IT every day this week like I normally do, but I can’t promise that that will happen.

At the moment, I’m locked into the final huge sprint for the finish line that is December holidays and it’s pretty brutal. All there is to do is keep your head down and keep on keepin’ on. The only way out is through.

In the meantime though, here are some thought-provoking pieces of satirical art from Polish illustrator Pawel Kuczynski so you can feel like you’re sticking it to the man yo!


Escape Monday: Banksy’s Most Iconic Work

banksy-painted-charles-manson-as-a-hitchhiker-on-a-london-street-corner-in-2005I realised when putting this post together that I know pretty much nothing about the street artist who calls himself “Banksy” other than the fact that he calls himself “Banksy” and he’s a street artist.

Turns out that the guy is pretty secretive though so I immediately felt better about not knowing more about him. Also, apparently he’s been doing street art for 20 years now.

That blew my mind a little as I only remember finding out who he was and seeing his work about five years ago, but this guy’s been giving the finger to the man for some time now and has built up a pretty awesome body of work in that time.
