Banksy

Recommended Posts

I'm not one for his 'aesthetics' and think it's a bit 'old hat' now, but I do enjoy the messages.  I guess that's the thing about art though, it can still be enjoyed even if we don't like what we see...

Generally his stuff is pretty cool, there's normally a message, often hard-hitting, and even if you don't agree with it, you can usually find some merit in the work, unless you prefer watercolours of fruit bowls and pastel kittens.

And he definitely doesn't take himself too seriously, so what's not to like?

🙂

I prefer his work to something like Ermin’s unmade bed, but each to their own.

I saw that in the Tate Modern just after she did it.  It really was a poor excuse for art.  Most of the stuff in there displayed very little skill or imagination.  The best bit about the trip was the building itself.
