Aik Beng Chia continues to take attractive photos on his iPhone and this time, he's paying tribute to the notorious Banksy with a series entitled 'I'm No Banksy.'

The walled stencils you see are Banksy's work with the main difference being that all the pieces are in the wrong country. 'I'm No Banksy' has Chia photoshopping the famous graffiti artist's pieces onto images he took of people on the streets of Singapore. The results are humorous interactive wall pieces between the strangers and the artwork. Chia was inspired to do this project after seeing that Banksy never completed a stencil in Singapore.

It may not be a Banksy piece, but it's a humorous tribute to the artist. Who knows -- maybe he'll actually do something in Singapore one day. Stats for Graffiti Phoneography Trending: Older & Mild
