banksy is king

whether or not mr. brainwash is real, i thoroughly enjoyed exit through the gift shop. it gives the viewer a whole new perspective. it makes you question, what is art? and can just anyone be an artist? the documentary covers the following: -
  • satire brilliance
  • inspiration meshed in misinterpretation
  • good things being overkilled by commercialism
  • mentality
  • society's foolishness
  • ... and then some
banksy (if it really was him) quotes: -
"Most artists take years to develop their style, Thierry seemed to miss out on all those bits."

"There's no one like Thierry, even though his art looks like everyone else's."

"Warhol repeated iconic images until they became meaningless, but there was still something iconic about them. Thierry really makes them meaningless."

"I used to encourage everyone I knew to make art; I don't do that anymore."
