    I really like Banksy's work all of a sudden.

    I don't know why...

    Best banksy

    A friend bought me a book of his work for Xmas and it's fantastic, great mixture of humour and political comment!

    I'm not that keen on art.. but i really like banksy's work too.

    he's a sell-out and is now known as TSB Lloyd's Banksy.

    anyway, i'm no art expurt or nuffin, but the handpainted Tesco bag surely discounts this as being a proper Banksy? or maybe some wag decided to add/edit something he'd posted?

    I think i read somewhere that they think it means all the inflation and power supermarkets are using [rising on a flag pole]

    i read somewhere that a lot of owners of buildings have been tryng to sell his art/graffitti for thousands of pounds so he's been going round trying to destroy it! a lot of places have boarding covering it up

    It' a shame really, because it's not exactly their work, albeit it's their property nontheless.

    now that'd make sense, but such a sudden change in style would be like Francis Bacon sticking a pokemon sticker on one of his pics to note how Japanese style has become influential in the UK.... surely?

    Banksy was asked to go and open the new £3million art block at the Foundation School my old man works at last year (Sir William Romney). He declined as 'nobody must know who I am'. even though the school pointed out that he's their most famous ex-pupil of recent times and via the art department, every kid in the school knows bloody well who he is!

    I think they're great too. Clever, brilliantly painted, fun, thought-provoking and interesting.
