los angeles-based british photographer nick stern reproduces the work of the widely recognized and prolific street artist banksy with his series ‘you are not banksy’. the pieces re-enact famous artworks using real people to emulate the lionized scenes through staged photography.

the project echos renowned images such as ‘snorting copper’, 2005, the original currently located on curtain road in shoreditch; ‘dog’, which was created in october 2010 and located in southwark, london; and ‘pulp fiction’, also in london near old street tube station. stern captures the detail of each iconic stencil in a studio using props and models, bringing them to life.

  • I agree with the user above who said more or less what I feel: don’t really care for the art but damn! The comments here are always so friggin fantastic! Half the reason I come here all the time…designers are such an opinionated lot. Keep up the good work!

  • Most of the comment’s are retarded and unnecessary. Fine if you don’t like it.. but it’s expressing well.
    People don’t like the truth… too bad.
    Good job.
    Was not meant to please you, it was probably meant to just make a shout out.
    HOLLER.. like you can do any better

  • Banksy is a genius! Compared with Maurizio Cattelan and Damien Hirst, they are poor amateurs!

    igor
  • i love that its actually got people talking and expressing an opinion..

    J.T
  • It called “homage” people…brush up on your art history. I love it (if only because ^this many people couldn’t have done it themselves)

    JB
  • At least he did it, and quite well actually – I really like this

    Sal
  • the irony is banksy probably set up these types of shots to work from for his stencils… round and round we go!

  • Not a big fan of this, slightly pointless in my opinion but lets all not forget that quite a bit of Banksy\’s work lacks originality, check out Blek le Rat and notice the similarities to Banksy\’s stuff. There\’s nothing wrong with copying ….. as long as you copy well!

  • Interesting, when people re-create artworks from 100 years ago or more everyone says how great and creative is. When someone remake a modern artwork its copying? or bad – why?
