Para mim, a verdadeira lenda do Street Art mundial. O artista urbano mais versátil e extraordinário alguma vez visto.

“Imagine a city where graffiti wasn’t illegal, a city where everybody could draw wherever they liked. Where every street was wash with a million colours and little phrases. Where standing at a bus stop was never boring. A city that felt like a living breathing thing which belonged to everybody, not just the estate agents and barons of big business. Imagine a city like that and stop leaning against the wall – its wet.” (Banksy Wall and Piece, Century 2006, pg. 97)

“Art is not like other culture because it’s success is not made by it’s audience. The public fill concert halls and cinemas every day, we read novels by the millions and buy records by the billions. We the people, affect the making and the quality of most of our culture, but not our art (…) When you go to an art gallery you are simply a tourist looking at the trophy cabinet of a few millionaires.” (Banksy – Wall and Piece, Century 2006)
