Graffiti Artist Banksy Arrested In London

Na, wenn das mal so stimmt :-) Die Nachrichtenseite NATIONALREPORT berichtet mit Fotos von der Festnahme BANKSY´s.

London, England — The elusive graffiti artist, political activist, film director, painter and long time fugitive that for years has gone by the pseudonymous name of Banksy, was arrested early this morning by London’s Metropolitan Police. After hours of questioning and a raid of his London art studio, his true name and identity have finally been revealed.
The City of London Police say Banksy’s real name is Paul Horner, a 35-year old male born in Liverpool, England. The BBC has confirmed this information with Banky’s PR agent Jo Brooks along with Pest Control, a website that acts as a handling service on behalf of the artist.

London Police Chief Lyndon Edwards held a press conference to answer questions about Banksy and how Horner was finally apprehended after all these years on the run.

“We had a 24-hour Anti-Graffiti Task Force monitoring different groups where Banksy was known to frequent. We received word that around 2am a group of individuals left a flat speculated to be one of Banky’s art studios. This group was followed by agents and once vandalism had occurred, we then arrested the group, 5 men total. These individuals all had ID on them except for one, and that is the one we believed to be Banksy,” Edwards said. “We then raided the studio where this group was last seen leaving from. Inside we found thousands of dollars of counterfeit money along with future projects of vandalism. We also found a passport and ID of a Paul Horner who matched the description of the man that we are currently holding.” Edwards continued, “Horner is currently being held without bail on charges of vandalism, conspiracy, racketeering and counterfeiting. We are also holding the other four individuals whose names we are not releasing at this time.”

Horner was arrested by London Police in Watford, a town and borough in Hertfordshire, England, about 17 miles northwest of central London.

SP38 bei Freshmilk

Freshmilk.tv hat SP38 im Stattb ad getroffen. Via:

Wir haben den französischen Künstler SP38 zu seiner Kurzausstellung “No Money No Art” im Stattbad Wedding zum Interview getroffen.

No Money No Art
SP38 hat sich durch seine Kunst im öffentlichen Raum einen Namen gemacht! Mit seiner eigenentwickelten Typografie und seinen kontroversen Statements wie “I don´t wanna be your friend on Facebook” oder einfach nur “ESCAPE”streift er durch die Straßen der Welt und klebt seine Botschaften an Häuserwände, Säulen oder Türen. Die Open Walls Gallery präsentiert sein aktuelles Werk “No Money No Art”, in dem sich SP38 mit dem Noch-Bürgermeister von Berlin, Klaus Wowereit auseinandersetzt. Zufall oder Schicksal? Denn bevor er mit dem Projekt startete, stand der Rücktritt von Wowie noch nicht im Raum.
