The Wall



***Original design for the little girl is by a famous graffiti artist named Banksy.***

This monoprint was done by carefully cutting pieces of different colored cardboard and taping them together. Then I got a second layer of cardboard, the blue squares, and put them on. I got some pieces of string and put them in various places on the cardboard. I also got some scissors and scratched lines into the cardboard to make it look like a real wall. I applied a large amount of a white paste like substance and sprayed it with glossiness. This would make the ink lift off of the cardboard and look nice. I applied a layer of brown ink and then a layer of grey ink. Then I put on the blue ink on the second layer to make the blue squares. I got a good sheet of monoprint paper and placed it on the cardboard. Finally I ran it through a monoprint press and forced the ink onto the paper. When the paper was dry i drew the little girl on there with charcoal.

Took me 3 weeks. This is probably my favorite so far.

Nice Monotype

I would have liked it better without the Banksy character. I don't see why you had to add it... ! The textures you achieved through the press were more than interesting enough to hold their own.

It was for the assignment haham plus I REALLY love Banksy ;)

still my fav

I remember when you worked on this in print shop. This is still my favortie one of the works. Hey do you possibly have a picture of the one we did by putting two slides together?

FatKidWitAJetPak responds:

I don't, Mrs. Shultz has that one. No wait a sec.. maybe I do lol. I will have to go and check in the attic. I'll talk to you on skype or whatever.

I like it

At first I though it is a texture play, but the descriptions woe me. When I see the art, what I feel is both of awe and a pity. Awe of flying, pity of the cold 'conrete'.

I found it funny how common people reacts to art that show distinction with other arts while originality is in the eyes of beholder. Every art, is replicating others, because they actually originate to what we percieves, either with ears, eyes, nose, etc.

FatKidWitAJetPak responds:

And our noses are not original. ;)

Come on

You can't expect to rip off another artist and then pass it off as your own work. This is pretty much identical to a piece done by banksy, and you've clearly used the same stencil as him. The girl's in exactly the same place as the original as well.

I gave you 2 points because I like the wall, but massive points off for copying someone else's work.

FatKidWitAJetPak responds:

HAH! I did not rip off of any artist my dear fellow. I did all of this by myself. The little girl with balloons was inspired by Banksy yes, but I drew her myself. i originally planned to put an elephant with baloons there or a little girl with baloons, but once I saw Banksy drew a girl, it really inspired me so I did a little tribute and hand drew her there. Everything else has nothing to do with banksys work... I didnt use any stencil. The girl is not in the exact place at all, if she is then that is pure coincidence.

However, i will give credit where credit is do and state that the little girl was inspired by Banksys little girl.

Also, just to proove I wasnt trying to "rip off" of an artist, here is a thread I posted 3 days before you made this review where I clearly stated that the girl was originally designed by Banksy.



Don't really get point of fullscreen and to guy below me are you high?

FatKidWitAJetPak responds:

Its abstract so a lot of people might review what they see in the picture. The point of fullscreen is because it looks a lot cooler when in fullscreen, you see a lot more of the scratches and it looks a lot more like a wall or a skyscraper or whatever you want it to look like.

Hehe, take some acid and stare at this. lol.

This artist has not been scouted yet.
