Banksy is a political graffiti artist that also makes some wonderful documentaries, such as “Exit Through the Gift Shop”. After initially finding out about him, I now own a couple art books that have his art and writing in them. They’re excellent and very thought-provoking. Although, I don’t recommend them if you don’t enjoy dry or dark humor. His works also pose some great questions about what we should consider vandalism and what we should consider art, and where to draw the line. And I like art a hundred times more when it poses questions to me.
So, what do you think of graffiti? Vandalism? Art? Or something else entirely?
