Banksy Street Art Gets iPhone Treatment

Have any of you out their in Fort Lauderdale seen “Exit Through The Gift Shop?”  If you haven’t…you just haven’t lived.  The movie follows a bunch of street artists including Banksy.  If you live under a rock and don’t know Banksy, he’s a pseudonymous England based graffiti artist, political activist, film director and painter. Basically…the epitome of awesome.

Anyways, a Banksy iPhone app has recently hit the Apple Store.  This gallery tool allows you to immerse yourself in the world of Banksy.

The iPhone app isn’t actually linked to the artist, though.  App creator, Simon Hassett, is a huge fan of Banksy’s work and says that he used to obsessively search through cities he visited in search of Banksy art.

The app includes a map of tracked Banksy art around the globe.  Banksy fans can get directions to specified art pieces, or upload pictures and locations of new pieces via the app.

Maybe someone will catch the illusive Banksy in the act…While we’re waiting, check out the gallery of Banksy’s work.
