Banksy Street Art Turned into GIFs

Banksy has never failed to provoke – the legendary street artist is both praised for his

Banksy has never failed to provoke – the legendary street artist is both praised for his politically charged messages, and castigated for his illegal methods. Yet despite his polarizing public persona, he remains an undisputed champion in the creative community, inspiring artists from around the world. One such artist is Serbian native ABVH, who has taken some of Banksy’s most iconic pieces and reinterpreted them as cleverly animated GIFs. Creating a series called Animated Banksy, the Serbian artist extends the narrative element of Banksy’s art by adding small, subtle motions. Images like the rat running inside the “no parking” sign like a hamster wheel, or the two policemen locked in full embrace are all brought to life with ABVH’s ingenious animations, which elegantly add a layer of dynamism and visual intrigue that fits perfectly with Banksy’s iconic style. Take a look at the full series and more of ABVH’s work by visiting his website.
