    how we solve the crisis of youth crime?
    how we get these kids to kill the right people?


    Banksy is unarguably the greatest british poet ever.

    if he has an original, then i hate you, and i;ll be robbing your house very soon...:mad::teeth:
    nah, banksy does limited editions of mostly past stencils of his.
    it his only part that i dont appreciate 100%, but id be a hypocrit then, as i two want to make a living of my art, so fair play.

    they are pretty expencive for a piece of canvas, but propably the only other thing id allow on my walls, next to my '95 Στέρεο Nοβα gig poster.
    dusty, quite something them pieces, no ??
    which one you have?
    im planning to get the molotov flowers at some point, hope there still some left after i finish uni..

    Banksy's rat stencil's came free with a magazine a long while back, can't remember which mag though...

    a mate does a lot of stenciling, piece of piss if you have the patients...however the concepts and themes of Banksy are a cut above any stencil artist about.

    I think Banksy made his position on 'original' pieces at 10,000 quid a shot quite clear with this:

    The most I'd pay for a print would be a 100 quid and there is no chance of finding one at that price.

    Instead I cut out a stencil and sprayed this onto canvas.

    Might put it on a wall.

    That said, I've got a piece of abstract art that costs as much as a good car on one wall. Would cost me as much as an 'original' Banksy. Edward Dwurnik (Dwornik) if you want to check him out on the web.

    My baby momma had her portrait done by him while pregnant and I've also had my portrait done at the same time. Stark naked so don't expect any pics. Hehe.

    Anyway, I'll be spraying something onto a wall at my new flat, I'll post pics when it is done.

    my mate has a Banksy from about 5 - 6 years back, original on canvas. was very cheap compared to the prices mentioned above.

    Well he's got a car then.

    Banksy prices are insane.

    Same for Wilhelm Sasnal (you may not have heard of him but his paintings costs hundred of thousands and five years ago they cost hundreds...)
