Banksy’s subversive street art transformed into stunning GIFs


Tumblr user ABVH is vandalizing the iconic vandal’s work with incredible GIF animations. 

Famous street artist Banksy once wrote, “Some people become cops because they want to make the world a better place. Some people become vandals because they want to make the world a better looking place.”

And some people become GIF artists to make that world come to life online.

ABVH has masterfully transformed some of Banksy’s most famous works, including his take on Pink Floyd’s The Wall, into smooth, looping animations that add another dimension to his subversive and provocactive style.

The GIFs have become the latest craze on Tumblr. His six animations have collected more than 6,000 notes combined.

Pink Floyd + Banksy (324 notes)

Parking (1,949 notes)

Kissing Coppers (178 notes)

Rat king (227 notes)

Dog (287 notes)

Mouse trap (4,271 notes)
