Banksy aka Robin Gunningham = Lame

July 15, 2008 at 12:52 pm 10 comments

Well, apparently, street art guru and general trendo mystery Banksy, is not so much of a mystery any more.

Thanks in part to a spazztastic newspaper we have here in the UK, anyone who cares on this rainy little island will now know that Banksy aka guerrilla graffiti god is no other than Mr Robin Gunningham from Bristol…


This is so not news worthy, in fact it’s so boring I’d rather read every bio of every contestant on this years Big Brothe… ok no I’m being dramatic, but this is still super dull…. But for some unknown reason people have been going mad about this. Seriously there are chat rooms and forums dedicated to this topic right now, discussing to ad nausium the who’s, the whats, the wheres and the whys –

How could they out Banksy?” erm. who cares?

Apparently hes middle class” oh god no, not middle class.

Banksy is such a hypocrite selling his work for millions when he’s meant to be for the people” Nope. Just smart. If Brangelina wanna spend a 3rd world countries GDP on a bit of canvas and some spray paint then who’s the fool here really guys?

I particularly enjoyed this response:

“Spray painting other peoples property, without their permission, is vandalism. It hardly matters to the victim (for all you trendy lefties out there, that’s the property owner who has to pay the clean up costs) whether the creep responsible was lower, middle or upper class.”

Meh! This is dull and we’ve heard it all before, miserable it may be, this gimp might actually have a point, but will we let him have it? neeeeeeveeeeerrrrrrr.

It’s a standard fact that Banksy is cool, if you don’t agree? Then well you’re wrong… and a mega ‘tard. We can’t be bothered to explain why he is cool. You’re so late to this party.

So just in case you care, here’s some good old examples of ‘vandalism’ for you to discuss to death. Enjoy.

      Dear Henis, If you actually read what the post was about, you will see we do not say that Banksy is lame…. just the obsession with trying to ‘out’ him, if you were anywhere near the uk or aware of the press coverage during that time you would be aware that the desire to know who the ‘real’ Banksy was nothing short of a witch hunt, with no one being happy until they knew the truth… for whatever good that was, and to be honest, his true identity has never been denied or acknowledge, with Banksy, himself, stating on his website:

      “ I am unable to comment on who may or may not be Banksy, but anyone described as being ‘good at drawing’ doesn’t sound like Banksy to me. ”

      So there you go!

    Read again dear boy, we never say he isnt one!

    I can’t wait till I can go to John Lewis and buy my Bansky cocktail napkins!!!

    When the anonymous artist wanted to be famous, well that’s when irony made him lame.
