Banksy going legit

Well almost.  I love this guy.  He is the single artist responsible for giving me any real interest in art.   I'm a northern bloke and "We don't do Art" :)  The social commentary in his art is very profound and is a great reflection of the world around us.

He has an exhibition in his home town at the city's art gallery.  In true Banksy style it was a stealth mission.  For the first time in my life I'm disappointed that I cannot get to an art gallery. 

The article on the show can be found here.

Slide Show here.

And for those of you who've never seen his work you can see it on his web site here.

I never thought I'd be posting an article on art.  Next thing you know I'll be eating tofu and going to yoga :)

Finally a fact pulled from wikipedia not even his parents know he is Banksy "banksy's parents think their son is a painter and decorator.".  Are they going to be impressed when they find out.
