banksy

Today's site recommendation of the day belongs to Banksy. He's the graffiti writer and artist (although he feels that the word "art" has negative connotations and alienates people) that is well known for his clever guerilla tactics. He made a name for himself by sneaking his work into museums and hanging them up himself among priceless historical works in galleries like the Museum of Modern Art in NYC and the Louvre in Paris. You can read about his most recent stunt targeting Paris Hilton that got a lot of press here. Also, be sure to visit his site's FAQs for his guide to stencil cutting. I found it quite humorous. So, enjoy and welcome to the world of Banksy.
