Nick Walker show approaches – check the projections!

So, with talk of the queues that will be forming for the print release at the Nick Walker show tomorrow, i thought i might get down there early and do a live blog from the queue. May not do that now, as apparently the queue is already 36 people strong, just under 24 hours beforehand. There were people queuing from midday today no less.

The art collecting world has officially gone completely mad then, and think i may blog on this more sometime soon.

But, that said, a cooler thing happened last night, Nick Walker did some projections to promote the show, one on St Stephen’s Tower of the House of Commons, and the other on the Bank of England.

Here’s a couple of shots that have been sent in of the Bank of England piece

The other

Here’s one on the Commons, taken from Westminster Bridge.

The mini press release for this says;

Walker projected his famous ‘ Bowler Hatted Vandal’ character onto both the bank of England and Big Ben. Titled ‘V for vandalism’ these huge projections featured a city gent in a pin striped suite giving the V sign. This is the first time any street artist has used projections to do street work and it thought to be the largest work done by any UK street artist including Banksy.

Which made me think ‘Didn’t Banksy already do street projections back in 2003?’ but what do you know, they were censored

  2. There’s a lot of bullshit going on with the people that promote his shows – when I was in LA, they were trying to spread rumours that Banksy was in town (implying he was there for the show? I mean, wtf) because they hadn’t sold all the pieces on opening night. Wish they would let Mr Walker’s name stand alone, rather than having to keep tying it to Banksy, it’s not like he’s not oozing with pure talent as it is.
