Boo_Guy: Sounds like the father needs to have his house tagged, then see if he still thinks it's not a crime.
MaliFinn: Clemkadidlefark: Graffiti is not art and these criminals need to eradicated. I mean wiped from the earth. Hosed with gasoline and set in fireArt is communication. You don't have to like either the method or the message.

msP: THX 1138: digistil: Thought his name was Robert Banks and from Bristol, England.There's a theory that this is him. Not many (if any) other photos out there:I would like to think Banksy is someone much sexier than that guy.
LemSkroob: I'm guessing education is not going to be a high priority in a hispanic family with a hyphenated last name.
digistil: Yeah, if I were to guess, I'd say there's a reasonable chance that's him. How many people in Jamaica (where I believe that pic was taken) look like that AND use stencils for street art (as seen in the pic)? But really, I'd be sad if he were truly outed.

Hoopy Frood: Monet does it and it sells at Sotheby's for $54 million. Your aunt Shirley does it and Salvation Army throws it out.

quatchi: Meh, paying for repainting buildings after they've been tagged by graffiti can sometimes cause an honest shop keeper his business so I says fark this tagger guy.In terms of what Banksy does I'm more open to the argument that it's art and the fact that a Banksy tag enhances property values due to his fame or infamy or whatever you want to call it certainly enters into that argument.Up here in Vancouver we have a tagger who goes by the name "iv" who does some stuff people consider Banksy-esque to the point where Banksy actually posted pics of one of his pieces on his site.This one...[i.huffpost.com image 640x640]
I'm just asking questions: Banksy isn't an artist, he's a stencilist.
Lsherm: lindseyp: These days he probably still would if he did a piece on public property and was busted before posting on his website.Yeah, and I doubt he'd be able to successfully throw up an "art" defense, at least in court. If my "art" is taking a shiat on a police car, that doesn't mean I still can't be arrested for it.
fusillade762: lindseyp: To be fair, banksy would have been arrested a long time ago if his identity was known.Was gonna say. The main difference is Banksy doesn't get caught.
