Art News: New Bansky Up in Los Angeles Area & Muybridge and His Moving Pictures in D.C.

A elusive British graffiti artist known as Banksy, has left his graffiti marks on two buildings in Los Angeles, and some say the value of the buildings he chose as his canvas may have just doubled in value. (Come paint my house please!)


Here are other Banksy peices in Los Angeles…

Not one to do interviews or even show himself in public, not too many people know what he looks like, but they sure do know his work. via ktla.

EADWEARD MUYBRIDGE, THE MAN WHO MADE PICTURES MOVE

The largest retrospective of Eadweard Muybridge’s work ever assembled is starting a multicity tour at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.

Structured in a series of thematic sections, the exhibition includes numerous vintage photographs, albums, stereographs, lantern slides, glass negatives and positives, camera equipment, patent models, Zoopraxiscope discs, proof prints, notes, books, and other ephemera.

Eadweard Muybridge fundamentally changed how we think about photography. The images he produced in the late 19th century — sequential photographs of men walking, or horses at a gallop,(by projecting them through a brass and wood contraption he invented called a zoopraxiscope) by which their movements were broken down frame by frame — have become iconic.  via npr.
