So here’s the story behind the story. It’s not really a Banksy film. Well this trailer isn’t. It’s a Thierry Guetta film.
The biggest counter cultural movement since punk. Street Art.

Know The Not Known

Curiosity Rewarded

I found this interesting short which is a combination of graffiti, advertising icons, interesting space and one poor Curiosity Rewardedbloke on a chair.
It is part of a campaign to create interest in Tiger Beer and involves a huge web of interactive incitements that will involve their target audience in engaging proactively within the campaign. It is a clever mix of treasure hunt and orienteering using all the digital paraphernalia we have available to us today and a wide range of creative fields. It harnesses digital, outdoor, magazines, media partnerships, PR, trade relations and events. And all turn their talents to directing the target audience to a FaceBook Hub page where their curiosity is rewarded with invites to underground, invite only, Tiger Beer events in pubs across London.

Has anyone been to any of these?

There are supposed to be special edition four pack out this year too for those who are not faint hearted:)

I’m quite pleased about that. There’s always the risk that someone will play it safe with an older, classic  piece by a more established name and then the ‘gift with value’ card will have  been seen to be played. (a bit like Mr Brown’s very politically correct Victorian timbers from an anti-slavery ship, pen holder). But dealing the modern art card is definitely more peppy, risky and shows a good deal of faith in the value of modern artists. Obama gave Cameron a signed colour lithograph by American artist Ed Ruscha, one of leaders of the Pop art movement. Continue reading Pop Art – a Presidential Gift
