Banksy’s Pet Store!

Wooster Collective just posted some images and a fantastic video clip of Banksy’s latest show Village Pet Store and Charcoal Grill. It is completely unrecognizable as Banksy work as there are no trademark stencils, no wheatpastes, no graffiti of any kind in the space. Instead there are amazing animatronic sculptures – little chicken mcnuggets drinking from a bbq sauce package, security cameras perched in a nest, fish sticks swimming in a fish bowl, hotdogs lounging in cages with mustard drinking bottles.

If you live in New York city get over to 89 7th Avenue between West 4th and Bleeker Street in the West Village! The show is up until Halloween.

Are the Similarities Between Trump and Hitler TIME Covers Purely Coincidental?

TIME Magazine has just announced their “Person of the Year” is Donald Trump. Twitter users were quick to point out the striking similarities between this cover, shot by photographer Nadav Kander, and the Adolf Hitler cover from April 1941. Hitler was also named “Person of the Year” in 1938.

In both images the subjects are seated in chairs, but as Fader points out, notice the ominous shadow on the wall, and the way the colour of the backdrop complements the suit. For reference you can look through the past “Person of the Year” covers here.

Many are also suggesting that the “M” in TIME gives Donald Trump the appearance of having devil horns. Are people reading too much into this or were these intentional decisions? Have a look at both cover images below.
