Re: Getting away with it

Two of the most talentless fuckwits in history who have successfully manipulated and convinced the world that they are supremely gifted. Scam artists.

1. Damien Hirst
2. Tracey Emin

Banksy is far from talentless imo, big fan of his work. All subjective of course

Re: Getting away with it

The stuff Banksy has been doing around NYC is pretty cool. Stumbled across a few of his works by accident, didn't know it was him and thought they were good.

1. Paris Hilton
2. The Kuntdashians
3. All those Towie cunts
4. Katie Price

A one-trick pony perhaps?

Re: Getting away with it

Because he makes the most mind-numbingly mundane statements.

So you're a big Banksy fan? Just so we know what level we're dealing with here.

Re: Getting away with it

Sabotini's had it in for Banksy ever since he did the kissing policemen.

Re: Getting away with it

My argument against Banksy is that its all very obvious stuff that he does... ideas wise its the kind of thing 6th form art students come up with, and graffiti wise there are way better graffiti artists than him.

Saying you like Banksy is a bit like saying your into house music because you have Tiesto CD.

I'll also add in Mark Rothko... the lazy shite.

Cutting out some paper and making bland statements about nuclear war don't really make the grade in my estimates.

Saying Banksys work is all very obvious is a fucking joke. If its that obvious Amps why arent you up a ladder with your paintbrush making oodles of money yourself?

That tired old begrudgers position of 'anybody could do that'.

I wouldn't go so far as to say his work is obvious but his subject matter is undeniably very sixth form.

Re: Getting away with it

Would you prefer blowing paint around with a straw maybe, Sabo? Nice & easy for a small mind like?

Sort of the point of the whole thread.

Re: Getting away with it

The argument isnt whether his stuff is cutting edge or not. Its whether the chap has talent or not. Clearly he has.

Got one of his prints above the fireplace by any chance Creeps.

I dont actually. Plenty of PNW Indian art round my place.

Might be a bit complex for your taste though.

Re: Getting away with it

..Banksy is a fucking genius, i've heard the 'obvious' line trotted-out before and looking back at his body of work some does look twee in retrospect. The fact that he's become so ubiquitous that market stalls sell 'canvases' & t-shirts of his work doesn't help, but generally speaking, in the context of the time they were made he's not done much that hasn't been on-point IMO.

Sure, he has his themes, smilies, rats, coppers, bombs, rioters... show me an artist that doesn't? and who else was doing that stuff before him?

I'm a mad keen collector of street art, have been for a few years now, it's properly rekindled something I hadn't really bothered too much with since I left Uni, I have shitloads of great art on my walls now, no Banksy (I've had opportunities to buy, but can't afford the pieces I'd want), writing him off as talentless is just daft trolling
