Maurizio Bongiovanni Posted by Scott 07/05/10 I’m not to up on the world of fine art but these paintings by Maurizio Bongiovanni really caught my eye. For a split second I thought they were manipulated photos, they look very Photoshop-ish with that stretch out effect.

I’m especially impressed with the backgrounds and branches. I’d like the first and third hanging on my wall. 4 Shane says: July 5, 2010 at 8:25 pm These are badass. First one is killer.

I was sure the artist was using a photoshop technique I hadn’t heard of. Incredible work! 8 Alex H. says: July 6, 2010 at 9:02 am These are awesome!

I might have to try and find some of his works for sale…beyond my thing…love it. 12 Jason Warth says: July 8, 2010 at 12:34 am “too”—not “to” (Sorry to be grammar police) I had the same thoughts when I saw those the other day though (that they were done with a motion blur in PS). Very cool. 13 Noel says: July 8, 2010 at 9:41 pm those. are awesome. 14 roggersmith says: August 2, 2010 at 5:56 am Banksy makes us all realize that there’s a lot of the world undocumented, un thought of and hidden from everyday view, and that things can always be twisted and a funny side can always be seen, even if it is dark satirical comedy. It’s not often you see banksy work for sale , in fact a lot of it is on non moveable walls which makes for a difficult sale. If you see a banksy for sale – buy it – then set fire to it or do something seemingly anarchistic.
