Banksy Street Art Gets iPhone Treatment

Street art fans rejoice!  A Banksy iPhone app has recently hit the Apple Store.  This gallery tool allows you to immerse yourself in the world of Banksy.

For those of you who don’t know, Banksy is a pseudonymous English based graffiti artist known for his political and satirical pieces of street art that combine dark humor with colorful stenciling.

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…
