:man_shrugging: does it matter all that much? idk really, thought it was all pretty funny

Yeah I don’t really disagree with any of that that, but I still found this pretty funny.

(and wanted to add that I think Banksy is a vacuous prick because I don’t think I made that v clear before)

Not staged.

This the standard setup for a high profile art auction. The people in the photo are Sotheby’s employees relaying with phone bidders.

reminds me of the time my Kasabian CD detonated and took my CD player and roof with it

According to the backstory it was acquired in 2006 but that may well haven been incorrect, and part of the prank.

I read this as “You’ve been banished mate” and was hoping this might be the start of some sort of text based group rpg on the boards.

I think it’s hilarious. He has always been a cut above the 1000s of imitators who follow him in his wake. As Xylo says these people trying to latch on to stencilling. Bambi is an example of over promoted under talented imitators.

Also, he does a lot for charity and raising awareness etc. The hotel on the West Bank, raising funds for different causes.

Donated a few pieces to graffiti artists that have been given custodial sentences too.

I like him. He seems to massively irk insecure people just by being popular and probably privately educated. Never understood why folk are so petrified of admitting to like popular culture.
