Casting an unconventional eye on the futile things in life – that’s what makes Pierre-Arnaud Gillet tick. Seen through his lens, the invisible becomes outstanding and the insignificant, sublime. The floor-markings are transformed into part-painting, part-raw material, part-photographic pictures. An astonishing representation of an unsuspected reality that P-A Gillet’s precise eye composes through the lens, thus breathing new life into these once hidden treasures. This photography series has been realised in April 2006 in Hong Kong.

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:
