Poor old Banksy


His art work speaks volumes.. All he was trying to do was brighten up the old grey matter of London, make humanity a little more colourful..

And giving our souls something to reflect on..

Now it looks like Banksy is going to be reflecting on prison and porridge time.

Lets do the man a favour and send him some spray cans in prison..!

Tribute to Banksy :











I love Banksy

Sorry, not sending a guy that doesn't want money...any money.


IMO, he's way overrated as an artist. I stencil graffiti and it's not hard or very time consuming.

I never stated I would send him money.. Just spray cans.

Cause I don't autograph my work, thus not getting myself arrested. HAHAHA.

Also, I forgot spray paint was free...weird.

Do I detect undertones of jealously in the above comment. A touch of the sour grapes so to speak...

I do not know what planet you come from. Maybe you live in some communist regime or something. Here in the UK we like earn and pay for goods. Do you come from the back end of Russia. If so I would be happy to send you spray paints. Here we have them in a multitude of colours. Not just in red and white.

I like Banksys work and for your information he did not get caught....

What does this have to do with wasting money on spray paint? Dumbest post I've seen in awhile.


Haha, jealous of what?


I don't do art for recognition or money. I have my priorities straight.

This sucks. He´s one of my favourite contemporary artist, because he´s both talented and has powerful messages that can make people think about social justice and other important issues.

ETA: this is probably hoax news, just google "banksy arrested".

I don't think anyone is insinuating that his work is hard or time consuming. The thing with Banksy is the message - nothing more. He has inspired possibly thousands of people around the world to do the same as him. Some better and many worse, he has a uniquely wry sense of the world that he effortlessly translates into an image and message that people 'get' straight away.

IMO he has done a huge amount of good, he has motivated and empowered people to do and say something.

By the way... Nice thread Fluffy!!

No he wasn't arrested and no his name is not Paul William Horner.

Banksy is awesome, his social commentary and satirical artwork is just fantastic.

Don't get me wrong, his message is the best thing about his work.


As an ARTIST he's overrated. Strictly as a street artists. THAT'S IT.


Opinions.

Sorry bud, I don't even like signing up for e-mail. I'm not about to take pictures of work and upload them anywhere. I can describe the last stencil I did, it was on a McDonald's and it was Ronald McDonald doing a Ballamy Salute with a Hitler Stash.

I'd be jealous of Banksy as well

Well, THE message IS the work.

Also, have you seen his paintings? He's far from just a street artist...
