Went to check out a street art auction at Julien’s in Beverly Hills last week. They were selling five Banksy pieces that had been cut off walls. It felt kind of like being at a zoo. I didn’t like it.
The Banksy pieces sold for over $500,000 combined.
Completely missing the point of street art and Banksy’s art in particular. People, everything doesn’t have to be about money. These are stencils, for Christ’s sake. Get a grip.
"What drove him was creativity and doing something amazing."
"He believed in people and things before other people could see those things themselves."
"He just made time for everyone. He saw interesting ideas in the most uncommon or unpredictable places. He was just super-generous with his time; he wasn’t hierarchical about it."
"He was a ‘we’ person. It wasn’t ‘I’ at all. When someone is ‘we,’ and ‘let’s’ and ‘we,’ it’s so major and so amazing."
