I am not a big fan of the typical graffiti 'tags' as I don't consider that art under any semblance of the term. Murals and other artistically rendered art, such as Banksy's, I definitely appreciate even if it does encroach on vandalism.
I am a fan of Banksy and those who do similar work and have been unofficially following his 'career' in the media. The most recent being the collecting and selling of his work without compensation to the artist for such. In fairness, it's hard to recompense someone who retains anonymity as a way of life... then, only if that anonymity is real and not a fabricated aspect of his brand. Only he knows, I suppose.
This image definitely has a Banksy feel with its strong political message and the use of stencil art mixed with a more casual spray painted motif. What this lack, as a Banksy, is the tongue-in-cheek humor he is so known for. A great piece, nonetheless.
