    I see a new print is about to be released any day now for Xmas, but what does everyone think about his work?

      I've found it amusing he's put his stuff in various museums and it, usually, takes a few days to be discovered and removed.

      His work is interesting, but I do sometimes wonder about his actual personality.

        Yeah. Don't know his personality. Seems ok. I think he started as 'pukka' and has now been sucked in. It's very American rapper type thinking. Bling bling, and yet down with the street guys. I dont  believe it.
        Think his work is really good though, especially as it makes spray can youngsters realise a tag needs to be thought out, not simply 'scribbled'

    Not a fan - sorry.  He might be good technically (as far as I'm any judge), but I'm always a bit sniffy when a person markets themselves as "subversive" (or allows themselves to be marketed as such) and then makes a donation to a mainstream political party.

    Banksy uses different mediums in his work including paintings, portraits, street art, original art etc.

    The guy's influental, and the future generations will have some heritage thanks to him. Riding in a trolleybus today, I have seen a painting on the wall in Banksy's style. It made me in some sense excited – like, the town got brighter.
