I mentioned before about Banksy’s little trip to the middle east. Well it went mainstream on tv today. ITN’s middle east correspondent took a trip out to see them. he interviewed palestinians about them who were generally positive. they even managed to get a statement out of banksy. In reply to the question “what are they for”, he said:
All grafitti is about comforting the disturbed and disturbing the comfortable.
There are some nice banksys on Flickr for anyone interested. The pulp fiction take, above, is in cambden and is huuge.
update: or maybe not cambden. hoxton i’m told. fuck, it’s somewhere i walked past recently.
