i think a lot of dudes on this thread are misinterpreting the foundations of graffiti thinking that it can only be rough-hewn bubble letters sprayed by black/hispanic dudes calling out their crews or gangs...smh at your guys' ignorance, if you read up on your history you'd be well aware of dudes like Basquiat, Richard Hambleton, Blek le Rat, and most notably Keith Haring-- a white, homosexual man who garnered the respect of the entire hip-hop & fine-art worlds simultaneously. foh with your "only i know what art is" BS, the whole point of art, especially in the postmodern, is subjectivity. you don't have to like it, but saying it isn't art makes you just sound like an elitist douche.


Not to mention Banksy did the traditional Graf for a long time before he started doing stencils and then performance art etc

I can understand why a lot of people hate on him, he has gained a popularity way beyond his skill, or his worth to humanity/society

But there are a few thing he's done that amuse me, like hitting up Disneyland or prominent art galleries, or the Israel/Palestine wall.

Pretty sure he was the first person to do some of that stuff

I think Banksy also has a very prototypical, British, sense of humour. A lot of people don't get British humour, so, don't get him.
