London: The Whole Town Being Painted?!

london laser paint bansky walker

It is reported that Banksy’s friend and rival artist Nick Walker is taking the street’s art battle to the entire London. A handout image provided to media of the Houses of Parliament dripping in colours, showing that the town will be painted red, yellow, purple, pink and green. However, Walker is not using spray paint anymore, but a giant laser beam to colour some of British capital’s landmarks.

By the way, Banksy has just created his largest work in London to date. It was also completed after he managed to erect a three storey scaffolding behind a security fence under cover of darkness while CCTV cameras looked on.

For those who don’t know or can’t remember Banksy’s works, here are some to jolt your memory:

Girl Fight: DOA vs Final Fantasy

Monty Oum, a digital art group, is launching its series named “Dead Fantasy.” It includes the girls from the hip RPG series “Final Fantasy” as well as the girls from the 3D fighting game series, “Dead or Alive.” In this movie, you can see the girls from both games try to battle each other out (with the chicks from DOA as a team against the chicks from FF series).

Here’s what Monty said, “First thing I usually decide on when I make a movie is the “why is this cool?” And as far as this movie goes, the coolest part about the movie is how it ends. Which is what you’ll see after watching it, and why I’m really REALLY excited about getting started on Dead Fantasy II-V. But more on that later.”

So you like the first episode of Dead Fantasy posted above and longing for more? Here’s the second episode:

Forget about entertainment, it’s all about “paintertainment” now. Meili-Melo Ltd’s Living Arts Cafe started as an ad hoc freestyle group painting party, and has now developed into a highly successful creative services company with a list of major corporate clients, including Hermes. You will be given a 85 x 120 cm canvas, unlimited acrylic paint, sponges, brushes and spatulas and the rest is up to you.

Unlimited healthy juice drinks are supplied but my friends and I usually bring our own alcohol to help stimulate the flow of creative juices.
