After all the stories about Banksy's work being stolen, hijacked by thugs who charged-per-view, and painted over, these guys did nothing to protect it, (a single layer of anti-grafitti paint counts?) much less move it, while drawing up a sales contract. And it got trashed. With grafitti.

*rolls eyes round and round*

It's called getting your piece burned and it's a given when you put up paint on the wall. You can find who burned you and burn their shiat or you can throw up something even better and make them look stupid for having nothing else besides the shame of being a toy.

Is there anyone else who read it quickly and thought "Who the hell vandalizes giraffes?"

Way to really one-up him, guys....

I would respect Banksy more if he defaced his own property.

For years I thought it was Bansky until just now when I Googled him and got a suggested alternate spelling and thought "That's what I typed" before realizing it wasn't."

This. I doubt Banksy is losing sleep over it.

Getting burned is just a good excuse to paint a wall you know.

Art on an otherwise unused blank wall is nice. Taggers should be burned at the stake.

Right, unless it is your wall and you do not want any sort of "art" on it as you will have to remove it.  And who are you to judge what constitutes "art" and what constitutes simple graffiti?

Banksy is the Elvis of graffiti. How else is his common graffiti treated so special?

Serious question. Why is his graffiti considered better than anyone elses? Social commentary? I don't buy that.

Well, I know what I like.

Yes it is.  With permission of the property owner, of course.

OTOH, if you paint something, whether crude tags or cutting social satire, on someone else's property without their permission, you're just a dick.  No matter how highly regarded you are by art critics,

I'm not at work, but if you are, heads up on some NSFW images on the side panel in the link.

Literally

Retarded liberal hypocrites in the Guardian whine about a little grafitti but dont see a problem with putting thousands of hideous bird-chomping giant rotating swasticas all over the countryside. Stupid leftie hypocrites.

Help! Police! Somebody sandblasted my graffiti!
