I feel this thread would be far more efficient if it had a poll

Re: Do you have a banksy too?

Banksy is more associated with Stenciling and that is a wheatpaste

I think the poll needs a "No, but we have an original Puber" option...

Re: Do you have a banksy too?

To be honest if these Banksys spent more time working and less time doing graffiti we wouldn't have had the financial crash we did.

Ah... just got it (you could have mentioned).
Find it great - we only have the usual FCZ stuff.

How's about adding an additional poll option: Wasn't really aware of this before and find it cool - where can I buy a poster?

No.

That's like imagining every picture in the cubist style is painted by Picasso.

Many years ago, a group of friends and myself were having a general chat about art and Picasso's name came up. One of the ladies present, who had a delicious sense of humour, added her two cents worth - "Well, he did some pretty good work in his early years, but then he flipped and started painting one-eyed men looking out of wellington boots. I went off him after that".
To this day, I still remember most of us laughed until we almost cried!

Re: Do you have a banksy too?

In my home town 'up North' in England, we don't have a Banksy, but had lots of 'Wanksys'

When I first saw it, I thought it might be half of a Flat Stanley pasted upon a wall.

Re: Do you have a banksy too?

I've wondered this myself. I keep seeing these little "weasel" creatures painted on the buildings all over in different cities.
