The Thing Banksy Hates Most About Advertising

Here's something for all you ad heads to ponder over the weekend. Banksy is arguably the most famous graffiti artist, and I tend to agree with him.

  3. What Banksy says about advertising is interesting; what he says about modern art seems to say more about him than modern art--which I suppose shouldn't be surprising from a provocateur. What does Banksy expect art to say? What does Beethoven say? To me it seems all sound and fury signifying nothing--but what sound, and what fury.

    But your blog shows good evidence that he's at least partially right about advertising; and some advertising can rightly be called art.
