    how long before someone rips one of the walls off with a backhoe and tries to sell it on ebay is what I want to know

    as a side note fauxreel will feel emboldened by this and our city will be wallpapered with his clone-banksy throwups for the rest of the summer.

    i bet it's not in 3D!
  8. Be kind of an odd sell to promote a 3D movie about images that are 2D on a wall, wouldn't it?

    Clever, artsy, but odd.

    saw it at the sneak preview. it's good.

    it's also funny that he had to make a movie to address all the fan fare and pseudo-celebrety he has.

    the whole thing is a giant commentary on how everybody is a pathetic ball washer who jumps on the bandwagon so hard. it's full of all kinds of funny ironies and commentaries on the popularity of graffiti these days.

    I want to see the movie, and if the weather holds this weekend, take a trip and spot some of these out and about the city.

    It was painted over by yesterday afternoon. Now, I'm not on Banksy's bone like so many others, but I can appreciate the fact that he is probably the most popularly recognized contepmorary artist of the last decade, with Brangelia buying works for over a million pounds. And here is a work that lasts only hours before being taken down. If nothing else Banksy gets a lot of people talking about what constitutes art and its boundaries, which is what it's all about, I suppose.

    i wonder how it will be over-intellectualized in this year's intro to media class :p :p
