Fuck, this one sent a shiver through my spine...

Bansky is kind of a lowlife but that is a good quote.
What?
I'll need you to explain to me how he is a lowlife.
The man is a genius with the ethics of Gandhi.
I'm not a huge Gandhi fan tbh.

This bansky character vandalizes buildings and he has a tendency to disturb the peace with his antics. Probably doesn't even have a tv license. He's a lowlife if there ever was one.
I don't give a tinkers cuss about climate change, I bash baby seal heads in, eat their hearts raw, then wipe my mouth with their furry carcasses, if the sea ice dissapears, I switch to some other furry creature.

I don't know if Bansky ever did anything so low to be compared to Gandhi.

Vandalises buildings?
I think you'll find he adds massive value to them. Often his graffiti is carefully removed and sold for many tens of thousands of pounds.
I'd love him to ''vandalise'' one of my trucks.

Disturb the peace?
Peace is his main message.

For legal reasons, we are not threatening to destroy U.S. government property with our glorious medieval siege engine. But if we wanted to, we could. But we won’t. But we could.

Seems like a pozzed leftist.

Not even a controversial message in his art. Totally safe and approved. CNN Art.

"It's Okay to be White" totally trumped anything Bansky ever did in every way.

meh. I've chuckled at a couple of his murals, but overall I think he is just a poseur. There are so many cameras around the UK, I don't believe for a second that the authorities don't know who he is. Its just choreographed. Like that auction where his painting shredded after it got sold. That was clearly a publicity stunt that the auction house was in on. The mystique around his subversiveness is all marketing too, and really Banksy just reinforces bien pensant views. He's about as rebellious as a super bowl ad.

I like his art.
I thought no country for old men was shit.

There's literally nothing controversial about what he does. He might as well be paid by the globalist banksters to do what he does. Maybe that is why he calls himself Banksy.

The It's Okay to Be White campaign was actually transgressive art and cut to the heart of the primary form of bigotry hurting millions of people in the West today. Bansky doesn't do that. He reminds me of that Trevor Noah douche talking for over an hour in a standup about white racism and how hard it is to be a black man from South Africa, with absolutely no sign of recognition of the hypocrisy while his own people are actually genociding white people.

Whatever. If you are going to do political art, at least be transgressive. Don't just push the globalist groupthink narrative. Sad.

In terms of craft and style, I think he has talent, though. He just doesn't use it very well. Imagine if Basquiat, instead of producing fine art, just started doing USPS advertisements or some such bullshit.
