People can call him “So yesterday” but I still LOVE Banksy’s art. I do not believe in the rule that an artist has to die to get his fame back after his expiry date… Making art that sometimes provokes people is why he is a hero! I love to see reality instead of an artist painting the world beautiful. Tagging on public walls is his technique to spread the word. His yesterday’s work could be removed tomorrow, as some people call it vandalism instead of art. Mega billboards hanging on the side of the road are allowed, but a person expressing a serious portion of professional creativity is a criminal action.
London, famous for its street art, is becoming stricter in removing graffiti. Over painting graffiti art is like taking down a historic building. It is cultural self-destructor.
Being in the wave of the almost finished Olympic fever has manifested in amazing tagging all around the bricks of London’s walls. Some of them lucky enough to remain, some replaced by a thick layer of white paint.
