New Indoor Works from Banksy

My favorite of the bunch has got to be the ballerina on pointe, balancing on what appears to be a tightrope. The brilliant part is that the stencil is printed on the back of a framed painting and the rope is what’s normally used to hang said painting. Instead of questioning whether a work of art deserves to be framed, why not turn the frame itself into a work of art? I feel like the lesson to take away from this is that art is everywhere. It just takes a creative force like Banksy to open our eyes to it.
