    Wall and Piece

    I like the front picture of the wall and piece book. It is totally unexpected. I have a large poster on my living room wall of the Policeman stencil sniffing coke in Shoreditch.

    Why I admire him

    “How illegal is it to vandalize a wall,” asks Banksy in his website introduction to his Wall project, “if the wall itself has been deemed unlawful by the International Court of Justice? The Israeli government is building a wall surrounding the occupied Palestinian...

    I Love His Work

    I think one of my favorites has to be the one of a young angel wearing a bullet proof vest and holding a childs skull with a baseball cap on, it really highlights the growing crime amoung the young people of Britain today. Another favorite is the one of a cold stream guard going...

    I absolutely love almost every piece by him, but my favorite would have to be his Balloon Girl, and this one in particular. Every time I see the picture, it makes me believe in the world again.
