Some great art street paints by Banksy

Recommended Posts

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."

Banksy had an exhibition 3 years ago here in the UK which I went to and it was frickin' great! Here's a BBC article about it-

Plus there's a movie he's made called "Exit Through the Gift Shop" which is well worth watching.
