Graffiti or Art? - 12th Sep 2016

Banksy: Wall and Piece

Graffiti is the lowest form of art. Graffiti is even lower than that and is just plain vandalism.  Graffiti  is art at its most pure and honest.  Graffiti is a symbol of a decline in society.  Whatever your opinion, this book of Banksy's will certainly make you think.  

Banksy's own opinion is, "The people who truly deface our neighbourhoods are rhe companies that scrawl giant slogans .. trying to make us.. buy their stuff.  They expect to be able to shout their message.. from every available surface but you're never allowed to answer back."  

He says a lot more and says it succintly and wittily.  If his words are thought-provoking, the work itself is more so.  Treat yourself to a really fascinating look at a world many of us don't bother to think about and after you've perused this book carefully then you can decide what your answer to the art vs. vandalism question is.

PS.  Banksy also said, "Copyright is for Losers."  However, he is identified as the author of the above book under the Copyright Act.
