Banksy in Singapore…Almost (4 photos)


One of our favorite (and most talented) iPhone photographers Aik Beng Chia just sent over some very cool photos that pay tribute to street artist Banksy. Chia shot strangers on Singapore’s streets and then used the Blender app to combine Banksy’s pieces with his subjects. Finally, he used the Cross Process app to add some finishing touches.

When asked why he created this series he calls I’m No Banky, Beng told us this, “I always wanted Banksy to do a piece in SIngapore but since there are none, I decided to recreate it with my street photography.”

Well done!




I asked Aik Beng to give us his top 10 iPhone apps for those that were interested in taking up this type of photography. Here they are, in no particular order. 1- Filterstorm 2- Camera+ 3- Cross Process 4- ShakeItPhoto 5- Perfect Photo 6- PhotoFX 7-Juxtaposer 8- PictureShow 9- Touch Retouch 10- Cameramatic Thanks, Aik Beng!
