    Capatlism strikes again. Banksy the "graffiti artist" is allowed and welcomed to vandalise whatever her chooses. Whereas actual graffiti artists are raided, assaulted, arrested and sent to prison. How comes the rules are different? We live in a democracy and the rules should be enforced for everyone.
    I've seen alot of hate for banksy in my area and I don't blame them.
    Has banksy ever defaced a train with wildstyle or one of his pieces? Nope, doesn't have the guts to of course.
    To be frank it's not fair that artsy guys like him get away with it.

    I don't think Banksy is allowed to do any vandalism. People paying big money on the art market is totally separated from the reality of law enforcement. I still think that if a police officer sees Banksy in action, he will have to arrest him no matter who he is. He will just probably have more money than the common folk to play the system like it is done everyday by other rich people.

    Yes it is capitalism at work.

    To counter what you've said newz12, recently the council of (can't remember where but I was a recent story) said banksy was "welcome to paint at anytime" indicating that he gets a free pass to stencil up any old building.
    I have some respect for him but it's takes little effort to do a stencil compared to more intricate pieces .so seno is right .

    banksy has some fucking awsome stuff but i never knew he was ALLOWED to do his shit. That takes away half of the balls this shit takes.
    My respect for him just went down about 4 notches.

    He doesn't go places he's allowed. His vandalism was respectable but he disrespected king Robbo. So fuck him.

    I honestly suspect he may have some kind of arrangement with his government. He does travel abroad allot you know and schmoozes with influencial people...he may be some kind of spy or something.

    If that were the case I'm sure the local authorities might be inclined to turn a blind eye here and there...

    This thread is stupid on most levels. This is a graf site and you're upset dude might be allowed to graf in some places? The nerve of that hipster bitch boy! Why I bet if you had his name and address you'd turn the scoundrel in right away, eh? After you catch Banksy and make him pay for his dirty deeds both legal and illegal you might want to turn to legal walls. That's right- across the world shit tons of people are getting up- legally! Why should they be allowed to do that?!?! Derpity derp derp.

    Ok Ray...I have a question for you then. Why do you suppose the media supports the narrative that the authorities are not aware of his identity? Or do you actually believe he has some how managed to maintain his anonymity.

    I believe he has somewhat maintained that, yes. Some of his past methods have been pretty clever. Sure he pays his associates well enough to keep quiet. If he were a spy I imagine he would be much more inconspicuous as a tourist rather than as a foreigner sneaking out at night to spray whimsical pictures on shit.

    Ok dude. If you want to believe that anyone can hide from the federal government in this day and age then you go right ahead and think that.

    You guys are retarded. Banksy is just like any other stencil artist or there. Even without his work going up for millions he'd still have more ups than majority of y'all. Shut up and sit down.
    He never asked for his work to be sold off or ripped off walls for profit. He's openly expressed disdain for it. Oh and now he has a pass to paint where he wants? So now he's the enemy? Fuck off, he's normalizing graffiti and making it easier for lesser known artists to make money off their work. If you're doing graffiti purely cuz you wanna break the law, just start doing drugs instead. We have enough toys here.
