seen 2009 at BLKriver festival Vienna based graffiti & street-artist BUSK takes a reflexive approach to the subject. In having his portrait taken in public space (i.e. Vienna’s historic city center St.Stephens Square) by another ’street-artist’, BUSK’s action raises questions on the economic mechanisms of adding and siphoning value in arts and the current hype on the global arts market which accompanies present day graffiti & street art.
"I took the photo in Central Park and sad to admit I had never heard of Banksy at the time. I was in Central Park on the May 17th. I was in the city to see an exhibit and went to the park afterwards. It was one of those moments where I happened to have my camera on me, but almost missed the shot. I walked by completely unaware of him at first and the friends I was with pointed him out to me. I wish I had said something to him, but he gave me a nervous look as I got down to take the picture and thought it best to hurry on my way. Now that I know more about him I am really kicking myself for not taking more/better shots."
guest8888: I also cannot post in the 'Art for Sale' section. Do we now have to have over 50 posts?

Payazo: Why can't I find a Help Button or Contact button anywhere on this site to communicate to someone about my seemingly being banned from posting with no plausible reasons?
