It also helps that Bansky is doing it in NYC, London, and Berlin. It's not like Orlando is really going to appreciate anything.

You live in Hollywood and are (apparently) proud of it. You have zero room for dissing any city about taste in art.

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.

To be fair, Monet did landscapes. My aunt Shirley does Fartzilla.

Hebjamn: Simple test to tell if it's graffiti or art : Would anyone be willing to pay for?  I bet a lot of people would pay Banksy.

Uh but they won't. Remember when he set up a stall on the street and no one bought his stuff?

Because People in power are Stupid: I hope they don't track my bathroom vandalism. It's international. Perhaps you've seen my tag:

fireclown: LemSkroob: I'm guessing education is not going to be a high priority in a hispanic family with a hyphenated last name.

Why not?  That's a really weird combination of stereotypes.

Uninspired trolls are uninspired.

And check out the ITG comments on this one. Reminds me of how the guy who invented Skate Stoppers received death threats. I hope that wall coating catches on.

In my neighborhood, we started adding "SUCKS" to any graffiti tags. So if "RTMISS" tagged a sign, we added "SUCKS" underneath it.

Our neighborhood is now relatively graffiti-tag free.

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.

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...

Yup... here in Columbus, we have Vinchen. He's reached the point where most of his stuff doesn't get removed.
