Banksy is one of my favorite artists. This piece speaks volumes to me. My generation has become more obsessed with "likes" and "favorites" than actual relationships. He & his art are motivation to stand against this social media sweep that is taking over this day in age. He makes me want to put my phone down and enjoy life.
Banksy. I could not get a picture of him for this board, since he is a secret, but here is some of his street art. I adore his work, but what I really love is the fact that he has not succumbed to the commercialization of art. He doesn't care about money or his own image, sometimes he doesn't even take credit for his work. All he cares about is getting his message across, and he certainly achieves that.

Another Banksy that I like. I really like the message in this one. Banksy combines gore (the authentic heart) with innocence (the sweet little girl). I really like Banksy's black and white, dripping paint style.
