BANKSY

15 Jan

One of my favorite shows on TV is Sunday Morning on CBS. This Sunday I caught a quick minute of a story on Banksy the graffiti artist from London. His work is showing up all around London. The work is satirical, tongue and cheek and controversial. His work is primarily done with stencils and spray paint on very public walls, but apparently he recently had a gallery show where he painted on canvas instead of cement. His identity remains a secret.

I am a huge fan of graffiti art. Yes, I understand the controversy behind it but I think it just propels the medium even more. I do agree that is a form of vandalism but I also believe its is a new and exciting form of public art.

Decide for yourself:
