Banksy

Banksy is a graffiti artist renowned for his distinctive street art and his contempt for the establishment. The constant war over whether his work is vandalism or art has kept him in the limelight, as have his unconventional epigrams.

Banksy: The ironically titled 'Bent Coppers' piece, being of course a play on words. The fact that it was considered so provocative at the time it was first seen is, unfortunately, a sad indictment of the attitudes of the time.

Banksy: Verrrrry nice... :}

Banksy: perfect aphorism...

Banksy: Happy Choppers. Lovely bitta ribbon, there.

Banksy: Well-timed photo of this mural, as the passer-by carries on walking, oblivious...

Banksy: Not all love is entirely healthy.

Banksy: Almost the perfect anti-war statement, in one monochrome stencil.

Banksy: Topical...

Banksy: A Molotov bouquet...

Banksy: Well... we've all thought about it at one time or another...

Banksy: Hey, when you gotta go, you gotta go...

Banksy: "Imagination is more important than knowledge" - Albert Einstein

Banksy: A smiley face on a soldier's body, with little tiny angel wings.

Banksy: This one always makes me chuckle...

Banksy: Brilliant!

Banksy's film, Exit Through The Gift Shop. His directorial debut, it tells the story of street art as seen through the eyes of a French immigrant in LA. Nominated for an Oscar, featuring music by Richard Hawley and Geoff Barrow (of Portishead), narrated by Rhys Ifans.

Banksy: This is a reasonably new piece, I think. Continuing the theme of graffiti within graffiti.

Banksy: More ironic stencils. Love this one, it's one of my favourites...

Banksy: Ahhh, irony... :}

One of Banksy's many classic rat stencils...

Banksy: "Nooo! That's impossible!"

Classic ironic Banksyism. Banksysm. Banks-- thing that Banksy does.

Banksy: Harsh but fair...

Banksy: Some would say they have been for years... :p

Banksy: Really not in Kansas anymore...
