    Some of this is really cool. A fresh take on that sidewalk chalk art stuff.

    Yeah, we have one or two of those stencil artists in town too.

    It's interesting if you see this once. But after awhile, it gets pretty damn annoying. I never tire of seeing the stenciled Geordi LaForge one though.

    The art is great, but this quote just sent me into hysterics:
    The time of getting fame for your name on its own is over. Artwork that is only about wanting to be famous will never make you famous. Any fame is a by-product of making something that means something. You don't go to a restaurant and order a meal because you want to have a shit.

    Yeah, these are very cool... Ive seen them before and a good friend actually has a book of his... amazing he doesnt get bagged for doing this stuff... Yeah, what he does to the master paintings are crazy.. he sneaks into the museum and somehow puts his painting alongside the other paintings without being seen.... something out of thomas Crown affair

    Banksy owns. We got his book at work, flip through it every time I get bored. Combining art with a real message, and a lot of cleverness.

    Oooh wow I didn't know that the stencilling was a sort of "style" which some people subscribe to... I've seen it around in Seattle before, nothing quite so cool or controversial as what's hosted on that website though Really awesome, lol@shopping cart rock!

    I love me some banksy

    He's got brains and crazy balls for doing the things he does... he's definitely one of my favorite graffiti artists.

    Probably because the avatar was taken from (or inspired by) Banksy's work?
