1 Recent Art News – How Artists Are Showing Support for The Victims of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

After the horrendous events in the Middle East, this story seems all the brighter and more positive in comparison. Artists are trying to help through Instagram Live Sessions, print sales and in some cases NFTs as well. Often the focus has been on Palestine, but artists have been showing support for the victims on both sides and have been at pains to point out the oppressive treatment of the Palestinians by the Israeli government forces.

2 Recent Art News – Banksy in Trouble over Trademark Case

Art News – Banksy Trademark Trouble for ‘Laugh Now But One Day We’ll Be In Charge’ 2002 Spray Painting

The European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) ruled against Banksy in a trademark case over his 2002 ‘Laugh Now But One Day We’ll Be In Charge’ work. The street artist’s monkey painting has become iconic over the years and one version of the spray paint work was sold recently at Christie’s for over $2 million. The case has all come about from a complaint in 2019 from the company Full Colour Black, which alleged that Banksy’s trademark was “filed in bad faith and that it was non-distinctive.”

4 Recent Art News – Saudi Arabia’s Modern Architecture is Under Threat

In a time of rapid redevelopment it seems easier to destroy existing buildings and replace them with new ones. Buildings such as the beautiful Al Rabooa mosque have been demolished to make way for a much larger place of worship. Many Modernist and Post-Modernist 1970s and 80s buildings are in danger of being torn down, hence the forming of Saudi Architecture which is leading the fight to conserve these beautiful buildings.
