The hype around Banksy doesn’t seem to come to an end, and the maker community is also inspired by the street artist. Here we show you a selection of impressive reinterpretations of his works of art, all from the 3D printer.
Girl with Balloon #1
The picture “Girl with Balloon”, which, after the hammer fell at Sotheby’s auction, transformed from a shredder built into the frame to a new art object titled “Love is in the Bin”, Maker “daveab” took on the 3D project. However, he did not install a shredder for his picture painted with acrylic paints, but integrated a money print magic trick with which he only creates the illusion that the picture will be destroyed. And if you change the crank direction, you conjure up an oversized dollar bill. Great! …whether Bansky actually shredded his work…?

Girl with Balloon #2
Maker “cyber_punk” interprets the new work in his own way: He printed not only the frame but the whole picture in keyboard size. Not a bad idea!

The masked man, who looks more like he’s about to throw away a Molotov cocktail, holds a bouquet of flowers in his hand. The picture is originally a stencil graffiti and sprayed on a garage wall in Bethlehem. Except for the flowers, the work is in black and white. Maker “SaltyDoodler” provides you with a small 3D model version for this expressive graffiti. For example, you can glue the flower thrower to the fridge as a magnet or use it as a key ring.

The stencil graffiti “Smile” appeared more than ten years ago on the wall of a London pub. According to a newspaper article it was probably sprayed on the bright day, because the pub owner didn’t notice anything when leaving his pub around 10 o’clock in the morning, when coming back at 11 o’clock the colorful letters “Smile” were already there. Two months later the girl was also immortalized. -Almost immortalized, because there were also intermezzi: in the meantime it was sprayed into a burka by an unknown person, later the original picture, also by an unknown person, was restored. Makers “xxEYCxx” 3D object of “Smile” measures 12.4 x 8 cm and there are two different files to choose from: A simpler and a more complex one.

If you want to start your day with art and spray a little love, then print this stencil and decorate the milk cap on the coffee with cocoa hearts! Print it except of the outline with a high printing speed and a relatively high layer.

NYC Gangsta Rat
Banksy commented on his rat representations as follows: “They exist without permission, they are hated, hunted and persecuted. They live in quiet desperation between the dirt. And yet they are able to bring entire civilizations to their knees.” Maker “Chalter” provides you on the subject of Banksy rats with a 3D model of the famous “NYC Gangsta Rat”. On the picture you can see how the whole thing could come out of the printer: A remake of the “ratranche” model.

Murdered Phone Booth
The “Murdered Phone Booth” project triggered a debate at the time as to whether this was still art or vandalism. For this 3D-printed art replica you don’t have to knock over a phone booth, attack it with an axe and spill blood, just let the filament melt!

One is not quite sure whether the panda with one gun in each hand actually comes from Banksy. It was first sprayed incognito on a wall in Paris and some people think that it could have come from a French artist who designed the logo for the record label Bad Panda Records…The original designer of this Panda Stencil is “Plastic_Innovations” and Maker “txankete” made a remake of it.
