Banksy will have his works on display at Adipa Gallery in London throughout the month of June, as the Gallery will showcase their private collection of the Bristol artist’s work. Adipa calls it an “un-paralleled collection of iconic and sought after original works by Banksy, from the collection of Andipa Gallery, one of the largest in the UK.”
What could be better than an underwater sculpture that doubles as an artificial coral reef. Jason deCaires Taylor is interested in his works relationship with its environment and he has found a pretty cool way for them to interact. He is documenting their transition with some pretty amazing photographs.
We love it. This dude up here who looks like a French Paul Weller on a country streak, has a collection of 271 Picasso paintings, drawings, sketches and lithographs, many of which were previously unknown, dates from 1900 to 1932. This guy showed up at Claude Picasso, 63, the late painter’s son office, with the works in hopes of getting them, um, legitimized. At first thought to be forgeries, on close examination many of them were found to carry a numbering system known only to the painter.
Pierre Le Guennec is the man who has these pieces, and the Guardian has this crazy story. Hopefully this isn’t another “Oh, these are my Ansel Adams pictures that you can now pay me $250m for.”
