Banksy’s “Exit Through the Gift Shop”
The story of how an eccentric French shop keeper and amateur film maker attempted to locate and befriend Banksy, only to have the artist turn the camera back on its owner. The film contains footage of Banksy, Shephard Fairey, Invader and many of the world’s most infamous graffiti artists at work.
I have seen a number of Invader’s pieces around London, and other areas, I don’t think I have seen a Banksy in the wild.
While I don’t really consider some of the stuff they do to be Art, and in a number of cases down right vandalism; (and those who emulate them Vandals as well) I can see that there is some more skill in what they do than in the Tagging that is prevalent in all metropolitan areas of our country.
