Oh, this is great. Love me some Banksy.

/and he some purdy eyes.

Banksy seems like a man that not only knows how to quarantine, it comes naturally to him.

Could he not stick to walls instead of messing up an actual nice car?

That car is likely now out of service, and in the process of being auctioned off to the highest bidder.

The car will then be shredded, increasing the value of by tenfold.

I'm pretty sure that the only market for used subway cars is metal scrappers.

"I get locked down, but I get up again." Nice. Is he the first person to make that connection?

Why is the car not just as nice, if not nicer, than it was before?

Funny how no one ever sees Banksy and Betty White at the same place at the same time.

Because graffiti is art like McDonald's is food - cheap, quick, requires no talent to produce, is harmful to the environment, and is usually enjoyed the most by those with no taste.

His works on paper sell for as much as, or more than, most of the modern masters. So either a whole bunch of people with decades of training in art are idiots, or you are.

Hmmm... decisions, decisions. Let me take a guess on where you are with mask wearing

For all the naysayers, "lighten up, Francis."

I did some googling as I was curious what line the art was on, when I found the sad news.

Why, TfL?  I always thought highly of you after you recovered, to my shock, my daughter's cell phone, left behind on the Bakerloo line.

As children starve and mass evictions loom - they should be first against the wall. Yes, a spray stencil rat... that's what the resource-hoarders spend their hard-stolen cash on. fark 'em.

Next you'll explain the particular genius of Mondrian's squares or Rothko's BS. Modern art is clownshoes... rescind those grants, see who pays for the garbage then. 9 out of 10 "artists" are just used car salesman types that happen to have a more colorful scam.

Personally not a fan of Mondrian. Rothko is actually pretty cool. If you think all Banksy does is paint rats, then you are woefully ignorant of his true talents. His graffiti that touches on societal issues is brilliant. His works on paper show his true talent. He donated a print to a hospital in England, which you should check out.

THOSE MURALS ARE NOT GRAFFITI, DUMBASS

Graffiti is, by definition, done without permission. It is also usually just the "tag" of the spanker that posts it... and if there is a picture, it's usually scrawled.

There are graphic designers in corporate roles that create better art than Banksy.

I went to a Chicago Art Institute exhibition on graffiti; so I think that's a settled question among everyone except idiots.
