A word on Banksy

I have a confession to make. I think well placed graffiti is artistic in the most glorious and wonderful way. And when that art has a purpose and makes a statement, well, that is even more beautiful. I think graffiti with these qualities is great because it demonstrates the most raw elements of art. Banksy is a master of this kind of graffiti. His works are satirical and painful in the best way: they tell you something you already knew but wouldn't admit on your own. Here are a few of Banksy's "pieces."
