#1

What do you think about Banksy?
I quite like the murdered phonebox, the palestinian children, that bear with a moloatov in Stokes Croft, and the film. So I suppose I do quite like him.
You?


#2

Whatever the consensus is. I think that.


#3

Novelty’s worn off a bit hasnt it


#4

Of his schtick or of street art in general?


#5

I’d like to take the contrarian stance.


#6

His shtick really. he’s done well to not be identified though


#7

Enjoyed his stuff in the 00s, the Christmas popups, the film and Dismayland so yeah, guess I’m a fan…


#8

He has been identified.


#9

Not a fan


#10

yes, yes he has. had to abandon my post

thanks man


#11

I like him and what he gets up to.


#12

Was that when the Mail or whoever went ‘Banksy revealed to be a middle age white guy!’ and the world went ‘no shit’.


#13

It’s weird, you’d think he’d be too busy to keep doing Massive Attack with all the spray painting and stuff.


#14

he’s a great deal better than that Emin lass, that’s for sure


#15

Street/urban contemporary has come on a pretty long way since he was initially pretty fresh. I think he’s basically now heavy-handed satire made flesh


#16

Who is he then? Didn’t know it’d come out.


#17

Robin Gunningham


#18

Are you guys saying you’d love to go to an art fair this week that can give you an insight into a better class of urban contemporary art?


#19

That’s the thing with these ‘who is he?’ mysteries. He’s just a guy who’s real name you’ve never heard of.
