to feel completely at ease
in your own private moment

exit through the gift shop

banksy really
is the real deal.

and i'll be honest.
I didn't want to
believe it.

he radiates a level
authenticity I can't
quite pinpoint.

and says
brilliant things
in a matter-of-fact
kind of way

what stands out,
is that unlike most artists,
banksy really doesn't over-think
his words or talk ironically to assert
some kind of cocky authority
over the graffiti scene.

he seems at
ease with himself
and his work.

do you know
what i mean?

I just saw it last week. I went in thinking, oh more banksy hype.
I left thinking, he is it! He is true with a capitol T. Agreed, brilliant.

yeah, it was the best movie i've seen in years. so funny/brilliant/ironic. conspiracy theory: is he duping us? did he really do all that work [mr. brainwash] and it's a huge hood pulled over the art world and us? i hope so, i don't doubt his genius.

Love the blog. Been following for a while.

I hear he has a second-in-command who does his soundbytes and one liners for him.

Obviously just hearsay, but I think Banksy is more of a machine comprised of individuals than one single entity.
