I find that when you look at his work as social commentaries rather than "ART" ( what ever that means)
it's better.

I've always thought he's been a bit overrated as an artist, but he always has spot on rhetoric. I lost a lot of respect for him after the Robbo incident. Exit is one of my favorite movies, though.

My friend apparently went to school with him. I realized, Banksy likely was born rich, for him to have kept his identity a secret for this long, be bailed out of jail so many times, and afford so many prints early in his career.

More power to a man who is famously anonymous! He knows how to get the people's attention without making an appearance.

Really have grown to hate this guy the more he's made a name for himself. Being in a similar 'line of work' to him, I know that I share my opinion with a lot of people. He's milked growing up tagging trains (who knows, maybe he even made that up? ), then gone from being so anti-commercial, anti-society etc., to having his work hanging in a gallery, in celebrities' homes, and having it reproduced for fucking greetings cards. I hate it, and I hate him. Admittedly, some of his work is decent, the idea of it anyway, but original? Far from it. Stencils = Easy. Very easy. What the stencils are of? Most have been done before. Banksy has gotten to where he is because white middle class girls started hanging reproductions of his canvas' (canvas paintings... done by a street artist) on their walls, and feeling edgy/10 by speaking to other people about him. 

FUCK BANKSY.
LONG LIVE KING ROBBO.

It was never really how good he was at stenciling, it was always more of how he did it and the message behind the stencils. That's what makes him awesome.

Many times, it's not about the picture itself, but the mystery behind it.

How hard is it to create a generic anti-political statement inspired stencil?

If it was so easy we'd see more people doing it. As a matter of fact, why don't you go into to microsoft paint and draw up a sketch of what you'd stencil since "it's so easy". I'm ready to laugh at the shallowness.

If you had any clue about graff you'd know that I wouldn't incriminate myself by posting any of my work online.

Lmao you're an idiot. I didn't ask to see any of your work. I told you to do a rough sketch of a "generic anti-political statement" since you say it's easy to make.

Banksy is a good artist and no matter what you say; he's revolutionary. he birthed a style that so many "artists" try to carbon copy. He is good. Das it.
birthed a style? which style is that exactly?
