Some street art spotted near Arcadia at Glasto this weekend playing on Tesco’s well known phrase, Every Little Helps.
It looks cool and made me laugh momentarily, however it does feel like someone thought of the ‘Very Little Help’ play on words without actually having anything against Tesco.
Perhaps I’m wrong but it’s the impression I got as it was sprayed in a shot location and could have been part of a bigger piece to make a bigger impact. Also, did they really need to underline the V and E, do they think people are that stupid? What do you think?
I’m not shoving my nose up Banksy’s arse here but he’s already done Tesco pieces that, in my opinion, are bigger and better than this one.
As Tesco is a client at my work I should probably remind y’all that views on this blog are my own and that this piece is very, very naughty.
Just seen this nice series of Obey posters being pasted up in Shangrila at Glasto. You like?
I saw this being built over a few days last week but could only get glimpses of it as gaps in the surrounding fence were broken. Now that it’s finished it looks awesome and then when you read the information about it, you become even further intrigued.
It’s called DROP and is a giant magentic coin-shaped metal think plonked outside of the Royal Festival Hall. The idea is that you can slap your magnetic 1 pence and 2 pence coins on there and at the end of the installation they’ll be counted up (providing the homeless haven’t nabbed it all) and each penny will be converted into 1 pound before being donated to Banardo’s charity.
The Size + Matter installation runs until the 26th Sepember and you can find more information on the London Design Festival website.
Just wanted to share a few favourites from the shots I took at Glastonbury festival this year. Click on any of the pictures for a better quality version, especially the large landscape.
Glasto was truly incredible this year and I’m still struggling to get over my post-glasto-blues! Bring on 2010!!
If you’re that interested you can check out the rest of my Glasto snaps on Facebook here, here, here and here.
Last week at Glastonbury festival I was walking over the old railway by Shang-ri-la and noticed a bit of commotion going on with some security guards. I couldn’t work out what they were saying through their angered Glaswegian accents but I could definitely tell that they were livid. They had some chain and padlocks and were trying to patch up a small break in the wire fence parallel to the main wall of the festival. Understandably I was intrigued as to what the fuss was about and went over.
On closer inspection I spotted this pretty awesome piece of street art, which I’m sure is one of Banksy’s. It’s good enough quality not to be a fake, it’s just his type of humour, I’ve seen his stuff at Glasto before and Exit Through The Gift Shop was being shown in the Glasto Cinema so I’m sure it’s one of his. With all the security commotion and faint whiff of fresh paint it was obviously pretty fresh. Of course when I whipped my camera out the security guys asked, “You know who done this?” and I couldn’t help but reply, “Yes, it was Banksy”. They weren’t happy.
So I’ve just entered Trident’s Perpetual Festival competition (with only 4 minutes left before the deadline) where the winner (hopefuly me) will go to 30 festivals around the world in 30 weeks. They’ll also get £30,000… How cool is that? Very, that’s how.
As I only had about an hour to submit my entry I didn’t have enough time to film a decent video about my life so I had to quickly upload an existing video made last year for a house party we had at uni with my own cruddy titles.
Let’s hope it works!
Don’t know where is was taken or what event this was but I love the photograph. Reminds me of being at Glastonbury festival. If and when I get married I’d love to give each of my guests a Chinese lantern like this to release into the nights sky. I’ve always thought they’re an amazing way to conclude a celebration.
