When Banksy slaps some paint on a wall ... is it world class art or just really cool graffiti? Hmm ... let's ask the rival street artist who dared to paint over one of Banksy's pieces?

Oh, and ... who the hell is Banksy anyway??!

Some taggers are downright talented. Banksy fits into that category. Justin Bieber & Chris Brown don't even come close.

In the 80's, the worst thing you could so was tag the word "toy" over their work--good times!

Why damage other's art ??? You can't get attention from your useless art so you have to go after others and damaged theirs??? Someone is jealous and in the need of attention just pathetic

Altering somebody else's property without permission is a crime and they should both be punished.

PHANTOM STREET ARTIST    

BANKSY is a Post Kolonialist Con-artist who has lifted his infringed vocabulary and catalogue as a lexicon from the Urban Graffiti and Street Artist Movement and School. The Banksy Biter R US agenda serves itself a meal card plan of jackd styles in marketing itself as a self promotional means which is fundamentally wrong, culturally ignorant and historically bias The wanna be Ghetto Artist is ever so forgetful of its reference source taking credit for its rip offs of concepts and styles, Banksy has intentionally misappropriated the use of Blek Le Rats motif for his contrived media act to which he has never given proper credit to its Original Artist on FACEBOOK Xavier Blek le Rat... Banksy has been declared in the Media by his Publicist Jo Brooks, Gastman and Deitch as one of the Greatest Art All Stars of MOCA's "CA$HING IN ON THE STREETS" Exhibit along with his "BUTTER the PAN NOW TWIST & $HOUT " NYC residency which was finally revealed as nothing other than a Conjured PATHETIC Publicity Stunt whose career manufactured climb of ascent and now its inevitable crash of descent rode in on the DOUBLE DEITCH BUST..
