“It’s a very frustrated feeling you get when the only people with good photos of your work are the police department.”
“People say graffiti is ugly, irresponsible and childish… but that’s only if it’s done properly.”
“Speak softly, but carry a big can of paint.”
“Graffiti is one of the few tools you have if you have almost nothing. And even if you don’t come up with a picture to cure world poverty you can make someone smile while they’re having a piss.”
“Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable.”
Banksy, Wall and Piece
