I first read it as Barney. Who wouldn't want to whoop up on the purple dinosaur?

I'd class those as a good couple of levels below Banksy.

Not enough "SOCIETY IS BAD" for your liking?

Link is sad and useless.  No, seriously.

I like them. A little bit of whimsy is much needed these days.

I like them but Banksy is a once in a generation talent. This is about a top 5% talent.

Disney will be filing a copyright suit against him over that.

I know Banksy. Banksy is a friend of mine. Cal, you're no Banksy.

Why compare two totally different types of artists?
These are whimsical, I love them in a different way than Banksy's work.

Meh. It's occasionally clever, rather than brilliant. If people like it, then they like it. That's cool. De gustibus non est disputandum. But the work is not saying much, and art has the potential to be a lot more than amusing. Banksy at least makes us think about the role of art as political within public spaces, and he asks us to reflect on the ills of the art market. Stylistically, his work is identifiable too, having a cohesive personality behind it. But hey, I'm just and art historian and this is still the Trump epoch, so as someone who really knows art, I'm the least qualified to judge it.

Those were quite amusing.

It's not particularly "street art" if the artist takes the photos and posts them on the web. It comes across more as desperate.

I  am less inclined to want to scrub these off the walls than the bansky stuff.

Why? ... because the comparison between disparate bodies of work that are linked in terms of practice yields a better understanding of each, particularly once you have interrogated each independently? Also, the slide comparison is a tradition in art history dating back to Heinrich Wölfflin. Frankly, within the grand scheme of contemporary art, this and Banksy have a whole lot more in common than separates them.

Do you compare Warhol with Dali simply because they were contemporaries?

It insists upon itself.  So fetch French.
