Is Keyboard Cat The Next Great Street Artist?

If you haven't seen it, Exit Through The Gift Shop is the acclaimed 2010 indie documentary shot by famed street artist, Banksy. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and if you have any interest in Banksy, street art, or interesting documentaries in general, I highly recommend you check it out!

Keyboard Cat is currently involved in a new project called Exit Through The Pet Shop, a one-part video, one-part art exhibit experience, inspired by the film.

In this video, which will probably make more sense to you if you've seen the original documentary, we get a look into Bento the cat's life as a graffiti artist on the run.

In addition to the video, the project also includes a real-life collection of Keyboard Cat paintings by Charlie Schmidt, done in the style of famous pop and street art icons such as Andy Warhol and Shepard Fairey.

Below are just a few of my favorites from the collection, which are for sale along with a host of other Keyboard Cat works of art.

Our mom happens to have the movie Exit Through The Gift Shop and loved it, so she watched this video and thought it was terrific! As for Sam & myself, it gave us some really good idea of what to do with those paint cans in the basement ;)

I love the Keyboard Cat paintings and would really like to have one, but I'm afraid to ask him how much they are. Probably too much for this meowster's budget.
