Lush And Banksy - Referencing The Greats
Banksy had a strong presence at 'Lush Sells Out in LA'. So much so that one person asked, 'What does Lush have against Banksy?'.
We don't want to speak for Lush, this is purely our interpretation of it, but when it comes to art, the biggest artists are not only creating impressive pieces of art, but they are also having conversations with other 'big' artists through their art. Its what Basquiat did, and at least to some degree, that seems to be what Lush is doing. Lush references not only Banksy, but also MBW, Keith Haring. The conversation Lush is having with these artists may not be high brow but it is exactly on Lush's level.
Here are some more pieces from Lush referencing Banksy, or 'Wanksy' as Lush might call him.
