Well, neither really. Anyway.

Do these look remotely familiar to you at all?

These are photographic recreations by Nick Stern of some of Banksy’s best known masterpieces!

I find they bring them slightly closer to home, that stronger sense of reality of them perhaps. I wouldn’t go as far to say that these or the photograph is more powerful than the painting (for the record- never) but, just, simply that there is a difference in effect. & that’s interesting. How there is something gained but then too, something lost. Still cool.
