AT HOME ART DATE | read watch make art
“Your mind is working at its best when you're being paranoid. You explore every avenue and the possibility of your situation at high speed with total clarity.” ― Banksy
Banksy is a pen name for an English graffiti artist, political commentator, and filmmaker whose real name and identity are unknown and a topic of conjecture. He uses a unique technique of stenciling. Banksy’s mischievous graffiti and biting social commentary have been seen all over the globe since the '90s.
This AT HOME ART DATE is a chance to make your creativity a wild adventure.

(element three) MAKE ART in public without anyone seeing you. Embrace Banksy’s paranoia. Build a rock sculpture, bring materials from home, leave your project in public, write a poem, leave it in a public bathroom, or slip a watercolor in a ziplock bag under someone’s windshield. Be sure to make the art in public and not at home beforehand. Keep it legal. Do it with a friend at night!
How does it feel to be an art desperado? How does it feel to give art anonymously? Please take a photo and send it to a friend or send it to me. I would love to see what you have created! Try always to share your art.
Finished? Congratulations. Well done, artist!
If you seek perfection, you will never reach completion.
