Banksy’s Street Art Comes to Life in Clever Animated GIFs

From the Upper West Side to Staten Island, Banksy has certainly been making the rounds along the streets of New York with his Better Out Than In project. In reaction to the British street artist’s handiwork, fans have been flocking to see the art in person, taking photographs and interacting with the many unauthorized pieces.

In an effort to add a new creative spin to the work, Serbian gif artist ABVH brought life to many of the artist’s murals in this series called Animated Banksy. By adding motion to the static images, ABVH adds a bit more humor to the already clever pieces. He works closely to maintain impeccable details within the slightly moving stencils, in what some could describe as an homage to the graffiti artist’s incredible talents.

This isn’t ABVH’s first time altering Banksy’s work. He is a master of gif animation and has put into motion everything from kissing cops to mischievous rats.
