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.

  • I don´t see it as stealing his art. I think it´s more an homage to banksys´ work. I don´t think that the Gif´s steal away any of the attention to the original. It´s more like sampling and bringing it to another medium. He seems to do this animating other artist for quite a while. I liked it. 🙂
