This Summer The Streets Are Yours

Who else but Banksy?

There’s no difference between being a vandal and an artist, it’s just a societal judgment. ‘This is a valid activity. It’s good.’ So they put you in a show. When I go down a street that’s completely wrecked, I’d personally rather look at things with drawing and paintings on them. The worst bombed-out corner with glyphs on it is more interesting than a lot of museums I’ve seen. The only difference between the Sistine Chapel ceiling and the graffiti on a sewer wall is marketing.
