It gains acceptance for graf, it's like a wedge in people's minds.

People struggle with big ideas, breaking them down into small pieces make them easier to accept. Banksy's artwork is a step in that direction.

Yes, some of his work is not difficult to do, but the fact is, he did it. The world is full of people who say "oh, any idiot could have done that", except the difference is, the idiot actually went ahead and did it.

Personally, I'd like graf to be given a break. I don't expect it to be legalised, but I don't like the amount of police attention that is being dedicated to it, it seems like a considerable waste of police time.

If people feel threatened by graffiti in their area, wouldn't it make them feel a bit better if we weren't villanised so much?

I don't want to harm the community, but I do want to get my name up and see more artwork on the plain concrete surfaces that dominate our modern environment.

It amuses me how you guys dislike Banksy, surely it's a good thing that graffiti is getting some respect, even if you don't particularly like the work in question?

Or perhaps your motives lie elsewhere, but if they don't, you're a bit short-sighted giving Banksy flak.

BUNGLING workmen painted over a mural by famed street artist Banksy worth £100,000.

The graffiti removal team mistook the 25ft by 4ft artwork for vandalism and coated it in black paint.

Locals in Banksy’s home city of Bristol are furious that the series of blue shapes — the earliest surviving mural by the artist and bearing his trademark “tag” — has gone forever.

One wag quickly sprayed the words, “Wot no Banksy?” on the space where it had been.

The same workmen tried to remove another early Banksy work from a house wall but were stopped by angry residents.

Bristol City Council, which has ordered all Banksy art to be preserved, launched a full investigation yesterday.




Everyone should start trying to go over Banksy.
O.E. book yourselves some cheap national express return tickets online :-)
