Frits vs. Winston

I spotted this situation not long ago, the utterly disgraced but hilarious statue of Frits Philips in Eindhoven, and it reminded me of the story behind Banksy's Winston Churchill image, as he stated in Swindle magazine;

" B: The most perfect piece of art I saw in recent times was during an anarchist demonstration in London a couple of years ago. Someone cut a strip of turf from the grass in front of Big Ben and put it on the head of the statue of Winston Churchill. Later, the demo turned into a riot, and photos of Winston with a grass Mohican were on the cover of every single British newspaper the next day. It was the most amazing bit of vandalism, because it was the perfect logo for this eco-punk movement that was trying to reclaim the streets, bring an end to global capitalism, and defend the right to sit in a park all day getting wasted on discount lager."

In this case ,concidering the fact it was done in Eindhoven after the carnival-period the motive probably was nothing more than wasted kids getting rowdy after the bars closing on their way home in their funny suits. And no, it's not such an iconic image to make a stencil of...I think only the photo will do for now.

Thank the buff!

Rotterdam 2000...

...and Rotterdam 2008.

Thanks to the Rotterdam municipal this electricity-house piece is still up after 8 years. Apparently the cleaners thought it was an official commisioned artwork (and what kind!) so they took care of it all this time. They put back the official stickers (post no bills/no smoking), cleaned some toy-tags that crossed it, and at one point I even remember it completely covered with posters, being removed some weeks later. How kind and thoughtful. Hopefully it will last 2 more years for the 10th year anniversary restoration.

Schoonmakersdilemma / A citycleaner's dilemma.

After a full year of graffiti-cleaning, Eindhoven is very clean, no matter what happens it is cleaned within a week, sometimes even the same day. Strange that even some electricity-boxes with tags from 20 years ago suddenly got cleaned. Talking about damage...

From a technical point of view there is only damage if this text will be cleaned.

John Körmeling's rotating house.

Eindhoven's finest John Körmeling built a rotating house in Tilburg, soon to be opened, or started, or how do you say that? A house driving by you instead of you driving by a

Photoshop disasters.

Since this blog-thing is new to me, I guess I am allowed to make some beginner-mistakes, starting with adding the familiar unlimited hyperlinks of hyperlinks of haha-topics and fun-for-the-family-blogs.

This one is actually so good, it is a great beginner's mistake.

> ZAP the scribbleface.

...talking about interesting tv; what better to do during an evening of numb zapping than sketching people from tv? 20/30-second sketches copied from the sketchbook combined in this zine; ZAP the scribbleface. Some last copies left, get in touch in case interested, before nobody does.

Banksy on the Dutch news.

The 8 o'clock news that is.

Sotheby's blabla 10.000 pounds blabla guerilla-artist blabla.

Oh. And some people got shot somewhere, and here's the wheather presented by Erwin Kroll.

Banksy did it again.
