This morning I awoke to the giddy & delightful news that British grafitti artist Banksy has infiltrated the Top 10 at HMV in London UK. He managed to Photoshop several copies of Paris Hilton's new CD with new packaging and a "topless" cover, and then covertly smuggled 500 copies into 42 HMV and Virgin record stores in the UK, complete with barcodes, where they were eventually purchased and then launched into a media frenzy.
I'm so happy that art is becoming fun again. Instead of blathering on and on about how much I love this guy, you can check out his official website... OR, better yet, there is a Banksy group on Flickr that has a more comprehensive collection of this outdoor work.
