In my former blog post l showed a few examples of street art photography taken from the pages of The NYTimes to pose the question "Banksy in Venezuela...?" Perhaps even more interesting is that The NYTimes has used street art photography in it's paper a great many times. Below are just a few examples, in addition to those shown in my former post.

It's been awhile since my last post, but finally found an interesting set of observationns that fit here. The following photo was in the New York Times the other day as part of a story about the death of Chavez and the impact on Venezuela. Notice the stencil of Chavez on the wall amidst graffiti writing...then check out the photo below that one, also from the NYTimes, this used in a story a week before about the confirmed Banksy image stolen off a wall in London, England. Similar, eh?
Note the use of stencil to create the image in each wall graphic, a technique used extensively by Banksy. BUT, it must be said that it is not yet known who did the stencil of Chavez. It is an interesting puzzle that has been posed before... and a year or so before in the NYTimes. (see image/article below.)
