Banksy’s Artwork Recreated in Real Life

If you are a fan of Banksy’s work, then this is a must see! Photographer Nick Stern has recreated the work of the world’s most famous graffiti artist Banksy in real life.

British-born Nick Stern, who is now based in Los Angeles, spent months meticulously gathering and making props for this thought-provoking series of images in order to capture Banksy’s controversial art through film.

“You are not Banksy” recreate eight of Banksy’s iconic images, including the gay kissing cops, Jesus with shopping bags and the Mona Lisa with an RPG.

“I have always been intrigued by Banksy’s work and thought it would be fascinating to try and recreate some of his most famous images on camera,” told Stern.

    Not a fan at all. He should use his talent for something useful instead of ridiculing Christine values. What a very vulgar mind.

    i think in a way, its a tribute ti Banksy. The fact that he made phenomenal graffiti and Nick goes through the time, trouble and effort to capture it is almost like honoring Banksy. 

    Fan of them both :)
