Banksy: Perfect Fraud For Our Time?

Jonathan Jones thinks so. He issued the opinion in this article: ‘Banksy, the king of the streets, is currently holding an open-air exhibition, called “Better Out Than In,” for a whole month, on the streets of New York. It’s a rite of passage for a street artist: he’s following in the footsteps of those 1980s heroes of art-as-popular-culture, Haring and Basquiat. He may be banal and untalented, with absurd Warholian aspirations, but because he stretches his limited gifts across the urban landscape, he has a much cooler reputation.’
