Art is surely just a personal opinion and judgement. Nobody is right or wrong. I like Banksy's material and think he's clever and original, but I don't understand why people will pay millions for Van Gogh or Cezanne or Matisse or Picasso. I don't rate them at all.

 

The difference is Van Gogh, Cezanne, Matisse and Picasso will never know the appreciation of their work. Banksy hopefully does whether it's art or graffiti.

Equally entitled to make his mark as a social comment but not to deface the work of another. That's the difference between art and vandalism. The yob/yobess who defaced the picture is not entitled to

I wonder exactly what you get for your money.

 

I think you'll get exactlywhat it says, a print on canvas. My-picture .co.uk will produce a canvas print from a photograph from £6.50...  (100x75 for £52)

I think the owner of the building is just protecting his assets, the wall will most problerly be removed & sold along with the bike, the Banksy artwork on the garage in Port Talbot sold for six figure sum :Shock: there was a new bike there this morning.

I actually prefer that to  Banksy. To say it's all done with a rattle can there's some serious skill and talent gone into it.

I agree that kind of 'graffiti' requires skill and ability and I don't have any problem with it - although I'd still prefer Banksy to the subway stuff.

 

The so-called graffiti I can't stand is the 'tagging' which ruins any blank wall or space anywhere in the city. It's impossible to find a wall or fence which hasn't been ruined by someone thinking they need to put their signature on it.

That’s nice.  I didn’t even know there was a subway there, I’ve always been too busy looking at the traffic to take notice of what’s on the pavement or under the road.
