banksy comes to life through animated GIFs

‘no stopping rat sign’ is re-imagined in GIF form by ABVH

serbian artist ABVH has conceived a series of animated GIFs reinterpreting famous artworks by banksy.
the creations transform six well-known pieces – ‘kissing coppers’, ‘no stopping rat sign’, ‘man walking keith haring dog’, ‘pink floyd: the wall’,
‘parking’ and the ‘banksy rat mural’ painted on canal st. and west broadway – by the prominent street artist come to life through
the machinations of GIF art. the work animates the original stencils through anticipated movements, such as the rat frantically
running the stop sign or the keith haring dog barking fiercely, each one enlivening banksy’s esteemed legacies.
