IS OSCAR NOMINATED ARTIST BANKSY SENDING US A MESSAGE?

We love guerilla artist Banksy’s humor and his art, so we were delighted when the documentary he directed and stars in, “Exit Through The Gift Shop” was nominated for an Oscar. (Watch the trailer above) Following the news, this large piece of street art appeared in Los Angeles. It features Banksy as a gold Oscar, surrounded by Star Wars storm troopers and has a red carpet leading out to the sidewalk. Hmmm. Who could be responsible for this….

    He is not an artist. He is a vandal and thus a criminal. He also abuses animals – Look up his “elephant in the room” exhibit in Los Angeles from a few years back. Witty puns sprayed on public property with paint are not the 21st Century version of sonnets and haiku. It is trash creating trash. Period.

    I have never heard of Banksey before, but this looks interesting. I agree with the first commenter to a degree. I wish the gang graffiti crap that is everywhere would be so entertaining, but, truthfully, the walls near me have to be constantly repainted by the owners and the city to obliterate eyesore crap that pops up overnight over and over again. A clean wall can’t just be a clean wall, and I’ve NEVER seen anything even remotely like art of any of the walls that have been defaced to great expense to SOMEBODY in city after city I’ve seen. It’s ugly and even demoralizing.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

    Love him or hate him, this guy is a loudmouth who doesn’t hesitate to tell it like he sees it- but there’s one thing he NEVER talks about: his prostate problem. Long story short: he LEAKS! He likes to project an image of macho virility, but under his custom made suits are custom made “diapers.” He’s VERY self-conscious and has absorbent but undetectable “panty liners” sewn into all his underwear, to avoid wet spots. Thanks to his arrogant behavior, he has more than a few enemies and he’s terrified his secret will be exposed and he’ll be forever ridiculed!
