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.

Got a picture or a link to some of your work?
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.

1- The difference between an "artist" and someone who designs graphics IS the message
IMO. And Banksy somehow comes up with stuff, no matter
how simple, that is original
and moves people, and makes people think. And I I'm pretty sure his message is usually as clear as it is
2- Aside from that fact that I don't believe you, I mean at all
, you criticize banksy as over-rated, and that's the kind of thing you
(allegedly) produce? Cute, I guess....however.....
A- Bellamy salute? So, basically you mean the nazi salute. More or less the same thing, except the Bellamy fell out of use, oh, I don't know,
several handfuls of decades ago....
B- What exactly is the message, there? McDonalds is Fascist? Capitalism is evil? Clowns are nazis? I don't get it...
C- You probably could
have been more unoriginal
if you tried. But not much more, I'm sure.
Ronald McDonald Hitler
So yeah... I guess with brilliant work like Adolph McDonald on your resume, I could see how you would think a guy like Banksy is "overrated."
