More Pictures of Banksy's Elephant
Maybe its because its a freeway spot, but we really haven't seen nearly as many pics of Banky's 'This Looks A Bit Like An Elephant' as his other pieces in LA. Here are some really cool shots, in black-and-white and color, to help see Banksy's elephant better.
There is an elephant outside, but still in the room. We feel that this piece is an attempt by Banksy to call attention to the things around us that go unnoticed.
And cool to see how someone painted the backside of the elephant. Apparently, at least one other artist recognized this as a canvas before Banksy.
Bit thanks to B. Land for sending in the pics. Check out his flickr for more pics of Banksy and street art in Los Angeles.
