New Banksy piece just in time for the Olympics

You can always count on Banksy to create a stir in the media when he comes out with a new piece. His latest work popped up in the streets of London. Even with heightened security surrounding the Olympic games, he managed to place two awesome stencils in the city.

Toronto –

Hello Everyone,

I just read in ‘What’s AGO: what’s on art gallery of ontario’ that 147 masterpieces from the Picasso museum in Paris ¬†are going to be shown from May 1 – August 25 with pre-showings, April 27, 28 & 29. I really wish I was in the city longer, as it would be a joy to see his works outside of Paris. Whenever I’m in France, I always make an effort to visit the Picasso Museum, as it always fuels my creativity.

Today, I spent a majority of the day walking around the streets of Toronto. It was a beautiful sunny day and the perfect time to visit the various art galleries to see what emerging artists were producing. I liked some of the pieces I saw at the Blue Dot Gallery. There were two amazing sculptures that I would die to own one day.

At 11pm, I visited the private wine lounge where I am hosting my exhibit on Tuesday night at The Vintage Conservatory. It was a pleasure chatting with the members and seeing my work with the night lighting. I’m really looking forward to the party next week. It will be a blast.

Here are two sneaks peaks of some pieces that are going to be included in the exhibit. I will be adding 4 more pieces:

Never Forget to Play
Harlequin Dream

Happy Easter Sunday !
