i believe that its just an artists evolution and transition from underground to mainstream. that isnt necessarily a bad thing.
If thats the case, and banksy has managed through his popularity to not have to do just clandestine pieces, i find that this gives out a great message. Be good enough at an illegal art form, and you will be allowed to do it.
Got nothing but love for banksy. (y)
