Art is not what you see,
but what you make others see TOK Presentation by Eleanor Strickland How it all relates... Personal Experience In my opinion... I can relate... Opinions on the situation Another Real-Life Issue How the Art Effects REASON How Art Effects EMOTION Banksy, himself To what extent are the values that we attach to art affected by reason and emotion? How the piece looks now... The, "Mona Lisa" by Leonardo Da Vinci was stolen August 21st, 1911 It was NOT right for the FAA to steal Banksy's piece and sell it without authorization. I am a student in the IB taking Higher Level Art Mr Vaugh: The Real-Life Issue Stolen and auctioned in February 2013 A Banksy mural was ripped from the wall of a north London shop and been auctioned at a sale in Miami "Slave Labour" by Banksy "Slave Labor" appeared on the wall in Wood Green, North London, in May 2012 Fine Art Auctions featured the art work on the front page of their website. Expected "Slave Labour" to reach between $500,000 (£328,063) and $700,000 (£459,288) Haringey Council launched a campaign to bring it back to the UK. Sale halted at last minute, with no explanation a pseudonymous England-based graffiti artist, painter, film director and political activist His critical street art and subversive epigrams include dark humor with graffiti made in a distinctive stenciling technique Art features eye-catching and humorous pictures mostly combined with slogans. His themes are usually anti-war, anti-capitalist or anti-establishment. The cover of Banksy's 2005 compilation,
"Wall and Piece." Reason: is one of the human mental faculties that is able to generate conclusions from assumptions or premises; justification/explanation for a belief or action Emotion: A natural instinctive state of mind deriving from one's circumstances, mood, or relationships with others. People appreciate a piece more when it effects them emotionally:
They can relate to it
Makes them happy/sad
States an opinion/belief In this real-life issue, there were different REASONS on who owned the piece and who had the right to steal and sell it. Location of theft: Musée du Louvre, Paris Estimated Value:1962 at $100 million dollars. Today is worth $743,000,000 or priceless Status: Found in 1913 after the thief, Vincenzo Peruggia, attempted to sell it The FAA did not take Banksy and his fans emotions into consideration. "I was very embarrassed when my canvases began to fetch high prices, I saw myself condemned to a future of painting nothing but masterpieces."
- Banksy (Edgar Degas) I am learning about:
Artists from different time periods
Different art mediums
Artists reasons on the creation of pieces
The emotions people can feel from art
How pieces can be interpreted in different forms Bibliography Luscombe, Richard. "Sale of 'stolen' Banksy Mural Cancelled at 11th Hour." The Guardian. Guardian News and Media, 23 Feb. 2013.

"In this situation, if Banksy wants the grafitti
to stay in Wood Green on that wall,
it shouldn't be moved." Councilor Alan Strickland: "The community feels that this art work was given to it for free, and that it should be kept in Haringey where it belongs, not sold for a fast buck." www.mirror.co.uk The artist?
The fans?
The FAA?
Anyone's at all? This issue was taken very seriously, because Banksy's art is so much more than just, "art" for the people of London EMOTION
