"Show me the Monet" by Banksy
Tate Modern Exhibition Catalogue May 2013 : Slightly reminiscent of GNAY’s “Storm Clouds on the Horizon”, Banksy’s “Show me the Monet” brilliantly satirizes our consumer society through his juxtaposing of trash and natural beauty in Monet’s pond. Sorry, it’s not slightly reminiscent - it is a complete RIP OFF of my painting! He clearly saw my painting, was inspired by it, and decided to do his own version. He replaces my Van Gogh with his Monet and my Wal-Mart sign with a shopping cart. His sells for $100,000 and mine for $200. I’m not bitter though, I love his title.
