Taking the Piss Out of Banksy


The British have a saying that you 'take the piss out of' someone, and this graffiti bomb takes the piss out of Banksy's bulldog in Beverly Hills.

Not sure what the letters say?  (KHA? )

Mad respect for the SYB/KHA crew for what they do all over LA, and for the balls to hit this hot spot in Beverly Hills.  The names on the left carry some heavy weight in Los Angeles and have been getting up for years.  That said, the Banksy piece is one of LA's iconic street art pieces, and getting bombed like this will most likely lead to it being buffed and the painting being altered in some way.   Dig the piece, but believe it would be better suited somewhere else.


***Big thanks to M&F Contributor Riley for sending in the pics!***

  1. TREASON. Poor whack ass haters wish they had the skill to earn Banksy's attention. If their shit was any good, they could put it on a wall and get notice, but instead, they spot jack at a community center. Not sure if there are any unscathed Banksy's left in L.A. Thanks, dicks. Can't wait to see your sorry scrawl buffed.

    These idiots are like the Taliban, when they blew up a 2nd century Buddha statue carved into a mountain because they don't believe in that religion.

    Anyone who thinks this is cool, you're likely a depraved social outcast who can't tell positive recognition from negative attention because you never did anything positive to know the difference.

  2. The fact that this piece went untouched for over a year doesn't make these twerps brilliant for fucking it up. It shows they were the only ones dumb enough to ruin it when everybody else everywhere knew better. Whatever cred you had, it's gone.

  7. The beauty of graffiti/ street art is that nothing is permanent. It's all illegal and there are no rules. Getting buffed is part of the game.

  11. it's like if the Louvre handed out crayons...
    people should be getting their ass kicked for this type of "big-headedness"...look how they "think" they deserve to have their crappy piece work next to something that actually has taste (thank the yes men in your corner). If you put a pile of shit next to a gold brick..it's still a pile of shit and you just make the gold smell like shit too. If you're going to spot jack or cap someone, PLEASE make sure what you're getting up is at least the same if not better than what is already up. In this case, Avery & Co.'s graff was very weak and unimaginative. Hell, even Felix's hit on that spaulding wall was more creative than this?! Another case of a talentless nobodys trying to get attention. Avery, you and your team blows...stick to making office products you tool.

  13. yo i think it compliments the piece. its says kleen yo chakras and the dog usin it's apana prana dispelling the toxins out of it chakras. ha. its actually a funny joke if you can get over yourself. kill your ego and silly established rules. break rules and truly live your own individual true life. the moment you establish you take away from the spirit in it all. close minds need to open up and see other perspectives. whats true to you may not be to someone else already making it not a truth the truth is in many perspectives. if there was just one way one perspective that was the truth life would be boring. open your hearts and minds. go out and live and have some fun motherfuckers!.ha.

  14. Lol oh no not on the banksy.. It's pure l.a. graff, no respect and no rules. Maybe it's a form of payback for all the times he has gone over people on street spots. Dont worry I'm sure your British friend will come back and create more extraordinary works of art... (sarcasm)....

  16. No artist is "better than the other" Just because I don't like bubble letters does not mean they do not have the inalienable right to write all over my pieces. It is kind of ironic to me, Also sad to see other art being ruined in the name of art. It was all in good fun I am sure.

    Street artists are pranksters by nature.... This will never change. Banksy needs to put up more stuff to stay up. Just like the rest of us, like it or not. I am sure Banksy could care less.

    Correction the dog is using his apana to balance his prana and in turn clear his lower triangle chakras. If we are going to use East Indian terminology lets stick to the rules. LOL

  18. Nadi shodhana pranayama (psychic network purification)

    Concentrate- on the breath. inhale fully expand the stomach. exhale fully empty all the air in your stomach.

    Starting position- a comfortable, upright sitting position Back Straight!

    Repition- start with 20 rounds from one nostril to the other than back to the start nostril is one round.

    Practice: Concentrate for 3-5 minutes on your normal breath. Sit comfortably, spine upright, then raise the right hand to Pranayama Mudra. >Close the right nostril with the thumb and inhale through the left nostril slightly deeper than normal. >Open the right nostril, at the same time closing the left nostril with the ring finger. Exhale slowly and gently through the right nostril. >Perform 20 rounds of this alternate nostril breathing. >Return the hand to the knee and concentrate for 2-3 minutes on the normal breath. >Again raise the right hand to Pranayama Mudra. >Close the left nostril with the right ring finger and inhale deeply through the right nostril. >Open the left nostril, at the same time closing the right nostril with the thumb. Slowly exhale through the left. >Perform 20 rounds of this alternate nostril breathing. >Return the hand to the knee and concentrate for 3-5 minutes on the normal breath.

    Benefits: Nadi Shodhana purifies the blood and respiratory system. The deeper breathing enriches the blood with oxygen. This Pranayama strengthens the respiratory system and balances the nervous system. It helps to relieve nervousness and headaches.

  20. I actually kinda like it. It looks pretty sick. A few more throwies like that in the area would be sick there. Not gonna lie, everyone get ill with the throwie sickness and do the Dinosaur. Turn and Cough, Dr. Throwie is here to administer your medicine.

    also smoke more ganga

  21. There is art and there is vandalism. This is vandalism. They both do it for fame. I doubt that Banksy cares about it nearly as much as the people bitching here. The only rule is don't get caught cuz neither own the wall. Don't hate the player, hate the game. Fuck 90210!

  22. Banksy is probably laughing his ass off. Dumb American fucks, he thinks.
