31 Reasons Why Banksy Rocks

From Water Wall Writing to Primate Cover Art

— March 3, 2010 — Art & Design
Who doesn't enjoy looking at work by Banksy? He is basically a national treasure in England and now, thanks to this newfangled interweb talking system we've got here, he has become an international star synonymous with modern art and expression. Put simply, Banksy rocks.

From water wall writing to primate cover art, check out the 33 reasons why Banksy rocks.

Implications - The idea of graffiti is to defy the establishment and laws set out by the government. Artists such as Banksy use this forbidden appeal to showcase strong political and social messages through their work. Graffiti artists are able to flaunt their talent in a way that doesn't require them to sell out, which is another appeal for street art.
