Little Tart loves it all…most of the time

Banksy worth a look

Posted on: July 8, 2007

I’m writing a critical essay for school comparing two pieces of artwork. I have chosen Banksy’s “The Picnic” a large canvas piece purchased 6 months ago by Angelina Jolie. I have to say his work is interesting and certainly worth checking out. . You might not like it, might question if it is art, you might even ask if it was worth the $400,000 Angie paid for it ($400,000 for 3 pieces actually), but it will make you question art, which is the ultimate goal isn’t it?

The second piece I selected is Marcel Duchamp’s “The Fountain”.

I will post the essay later today.
