New Banksy stencils

I got an email yesterday with 'Banksy' in the headline and I blushed a little.

It's been a while since I'd seen some new Banksy since he released that terrible documentary Exit Through the Pop-Up Gallery.

Anyway, I like this angry granny. Typical old lady clipping young punks' ears. Spanksy has made her act in contradiction to her message, though. Now that I think about it, it might be a self-portrait.

But it's pointless trying to keep Britain tidy. Especially with all those fucking street artists and graffiti writers.

And fucking bloggers.

Love you too. Even if your heart's only running Pentium 4.

Does Banksy go out of his way to appear rough because it looks more authentic than the skilled, polished artist he is?

Banksy is consistent at least. Consistently Banksy.

I agree with you the hype created about bansky is fucking annoying and that he is a talented stenciller (who is trained in art) also so was blek le rat that doesn't kill the message it just makes it more universal. but i disagree on the documentary, for me it was asking what is the meaning of art. you see in it how diverse the reactions of art is. and shows how true street artist having no respect for people like mbw. it all depends on your outlook i am pro street art you may think differently.still i get what you mean in some senses.
