Blek Le Rat: Ratical
WHY? GLAD YOU ASKED!
[quote]Born Xavier Prou, in Paris, France in the early 1950s, the founder of the original stencil movement has graffitied walls across the globe, inspiring hundreds if not thousands of other artists, including the elusive Britton, Banksy himself. Forcing critics and the world to re-evaluate anti-Establishment street art, he pioneered stencil graffiti and brought underground art culture into the spotlight, which is where the “rat” reference takes its origin, which is also wittingly used as an anagram for “art.” The exhibition is very appropriately titled “Ratical.”[/quote]
