Banksy is an artist essentially known for his graffiti art. He's also a political activist : the stencils of Banksy images are humorous, occasionally combined with slogans & the message is usually anti-militarist, anti-capitalist or anti-system.
Some thoughts from Banksy :
- "Some people become cops because they want to make the world a better place. Some people become vandals because they want to make the world a better looking place."
- "Become good at cheating and you never need to become good at anything else"
- "A lot of people never use their initiative because no-one told them to."
- "It's a very frustrated feeling you get when the only people with good photos of you work are the police department."
