“I Have A Dreamcatcher” Banksy er No? Montgomery, Alabama

The questions is as always, Is it Banksy at work? Did Banksy visit Montgomery, Alabama?   It may seem far fetched to some that famed British Graffiti Artist Banksy would visit little Montgomery, Alabama.


Consider this, there has been one prior visit to Alabama in 2008. The art suddenly appeared on an abandoned building in downtown area of Montgomery on March 26th.  This so happened to be the 50th year anniversary celebration of The Selma to Montgomery Voting Rights March. Led by Dr. Martin Luther King 50 years prior.   A few people have been around the area for this celebration.  President Bush and Obama in Selma, Oprah Winfrey, Marvin Sappe, Patti LaBelle, Rev. Bernice King, U.S. Senators and so on.  No big deal just a few people popping into town.

Since hearing of this cool piece of street art, I had been wanting to go take a look myself.


“Everything about it screams Banksy,” Carolyn Wright, a local aficionado of the British street artist, told the Advertiser after examining the new mural. (Huffington Post-4-9-2015) http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/04/09/banksy-martin-luther-king_n_7029142.html


 A little bit about Banksy Art. You be the Judge.

  • Banksy, known for sometimes dark satirical graffiti/street art.
  • Political Activist
  • Unique Stencil Technique
  • Epigram style
  • Social commentary
  • Underground

I understand the 50 part and have to wonder what the artist meant by the second piece? More work to do? I love street art!  I vote Banksy.

MEGASTARS ***** I give this art work a full 5  MEGASTARS!

      Bob, thanks for read. The last time that I drove by, the art was still in place. That was perhaps a few months back. It is located downtown Montgomery on the corner of Washington and Perry Street on the side of a brick building. I loved checking it out!
