    Hey, I bet you've been wondering what Banksy—the maverick graffiti artist and filmmaker from England—thinks about advertising. Who hasn't?! I'm gonna take a wild stab here and say … he's against it! That would be a logical conclusion based on these potently pissy paragraphs.

      BANKSY ON ADVERTISING. He's not happy. A statement (is this a statement or a memo?) has emerged on Twitter claiming to be the musings of street artist Banksy on the world of advertising. We spoke to the people that authenticate Banksy's work and awkwardly they don't do statements from the artist. Just his art. More details as we get them. Expect colourful language.

      Banksy's take on advertising. Never thought about it this way. But where/can does one draw the line?

      Banksy on Advertising: Any advert in a public space that gives you no choice whether you see it or not is yours. It's yours to take, re-arrange and re-use.

    • Todd LeMieux

      I agree with Banksy here. Advertisers invade too much of our public space. Food for thought...

    • Carlos Ricque

      Can't say I completely disagree. And I'm one of the guys making this stuff.
