Before I even clicked the link, I was wondering, "Is two Bobbies kissing going to be in there?"

Very cool.  I love me some Banksy.

Yay, let's celebrate criminally defacing other peoples property, because stencils are great art!

or

Make them scrub it clean and time it. Then make them spend double that time in jail.

It would be hilarious if the guy that is defacing Bansky's works shot them all with a paint gun as he forked 'em.

Is it necessary to damage other peoples property at the parties you go to? You must be a peach of a guest.

As far as graffiti and graffiti "art" goes, these are fairly innocuous.

He really should quit copying bland high school level art projects, though. (College freshmen "art major" class, at best)

So...the dude copied the graffiti with photographs? How pointless and boring. How is this even artistic or interesting?

I'm waiting for the painted reproductions of these photographic reproductions of the painted graffiti.

And then the next counterculture artist can graffiti those paintings onto walls, and divide by zero.

I'm waiting for Abed to re-enact it using fingerpaint.

A lot of the faces are off, and it is really bugging me.

The Beefeater picture is thrown off because the guy looks like a confused bum that hasn't shaved instead of a soldier.

The maid looks like she is posing with that duckface crap instead of looking like she is trying to hide something.

The vandal looks like he is smiling underneath the bandana instead of looking angry.

Congrats on discovering the basic tenets of pop art and appropriation.

The photographer didn't try very hard to get the lighting or the poses correct on any of those.

Pretty half-assed attempt, IMO.

/no, I'm not going to try to 100% copy a Banksy piece IRL
//wonder if Banksy is having another "Exit Through the Gift Shop" moment with this guy's sudden "fame"

I'm choosing not to be overly critical of the photog's work as others will do a fine jorb of nitpicking the crap out of it. Instead I say bravo, Banksy is a great artist and honouring him in this way is laudable.
