One of the most prolific and well known designers around, resident nice guy Benny Gold offers up this video interview with the San Francisco Gate’s Art Adventure. The feature ranges from his past projects with Huf and Nike, the background behind him choosing Benny Gold and upcoming projects on the go. Definitely a good look into the personal life of a designer who’s had a big influence on many in more ways than one.

Amongst the most well known street artists today, Banksy has struck again in perhaps his most ironic piece of work yet. Seen painted on the side of a post office, his slogan “One Nation Under CCTV” was conducted behind a large fence with CCTV (surveillance camera) coverage. The job required the construction of three stories of scaffolding to complete the job and represents one of Banksy’s boldest attempts and the irony is brought on by the fact this was all happening under the “eye in the sky” surveillance cameras. However, with the surging popularity of Banksy, increased publicity and large sums his works command (however this was done on a post office), maybe somebody willingly turned the blind eye?
