Banksy Love like Brand Love
Here at Truly Deeply we’ve always been big Banksy fans. As creators of brands with a penchant for visual identity, Banksy’s conceptual, graphic street art has always appealed to us as visual communication of the highest order. A while back we did a blog on our favorite Banksy work called: ‘Banksy, a voice rich in story telling’, and we’ve just come across the ultimate in life imitating art (gotta love that) – with these real-life photographic recreations of Banksy’s work by artist/photographer Nick Stern.
If Banksy was a consumer brand we’d be categorizing him amongst the highest order – those brands immortalized in art. His own visual language has such universal recognition that it may be successfully satired – no mean feat for a brand spending millions of dollars on global marketing, let alone an artist who lets his work do its own talking. History may well mark our man Banksy as the Andy Warhol of our generation.
