Another Banksy
Leaving the GreenFlea
2 weekends ago
I spied this doorway.
ToonMan thinks its Bob Dylan.
No idea
what the snake is about,
but
I have seen/snapped it
elsewhere

EDITED to add, if you want to see another post about Banksy, head over to Pagan Sphinx

  3. You've see the snake elsewhere?
    Looks like Dylan to me.

  4. I thought Dylan as well

    I love the building too, beautifully decrepit

  5. I'm thinking a gang of some sort and hope you share when you discover what it really represents, the snake I mean.

  6. Clueless here. Let me know if you find out. It is intereting though.

  7. He looks like Bob Dylan to me too. Maybe he hates Bob...

    Banksy came through Birmingham last year. He painted a person who had been hung on the side of an abandoned building in the heart of the hood. The people who lived around there didn't appreciate it and it was gone by the next day I think...painted over. I guess he meant it as a social statement. They took it as further oppression.

  8. Love it, whatever, whomever it is. If it was Dylan, surely it would include another clue of him in the figure. Yes, he smoked, of course. And did Dylan
    dress like that? A really wonderful mystery picture to ponder! I am still looking for Banksy's murals!

  9. I love this. No idea about the snake either but I think it's Bob Dylan too. Looks just like him in the late 1960s.

  10. My first thought was Dylan, as well. I bet those under 40 may say someone else, however.

  11. LOL...I thought it was a happy seahorse. Need new glasses. Sigh.

  12. From a distance it looked like Belushi. And my glasses are new. Sigh...

  13. My first thought was Belushi, then I thought Roy Orbison... Not sure what the snake represents, I'd be interested to know!

  14. Absolutely Dylan. The snake or dragon or whatever it is, I don't know. But it's well done.

    I posted about Banky recently on The Pagan Sphinx. I think he's brilliant. But I can see why certain styles of art don't appeal to all people.

  15. Looks like Bob Dillan to me too! The snake??? Who knows, but it has us thinking about it doesn't it?

  16. Wow! I LOVE this artist! Wikipedia has a great piece on him. He's quite controversial. Must go stalk you blog for more images. (BTW - Bansky not Banksy, I've discovered.)

  17. like that it is framed in the boarded up doorway...makes for a nice composition.
    have a great evening.
    hugs

  18. Man that Banksy gets around doesn't he?

    Could be Dylan I suppose. But I wouldn't want to say that with authority.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Totally Dylan. And he had a song about animals, and left out the snake part...
    Anyway, you are KILLING me with your awesome pics! Again - there's my colors and it's such a kickass shot/s!

  20. Another cool shot, Daryl.

    I'll be RIGHT over for the printer...12 hour flight each way, the return with the printer on my lap......um, never mind LOL

  21. It doth look a bit like Dylan, so Toon Man is probably right as usual!

    Not sure why anyone would paint such a picture in such a place, but hey, maybe a dying Dylan fan?

    Don't need a printer, but that's nice of you to offer ...

  22. that is so cool. I think ToonMan may be right!

  23. That is really excellent. The man is a genius.

  24. hhmn a cross between Belushi and Dylan? Banksy is great! Great pic too!

  25. It's clearly Bob Dylan in the mid 1960s. Note the harmonica holder around his neck. I couldn't find a photo with him in this pose, but here's a link to another photo of him from the same era.

  26. That was my first thought, Daryl, Bob Dylan. :)
