I had a look in the windows this morning, fun to waste 5 minutes looking at whats on offer but I don't think I'd bother going back for a second look (I think you're better off going after dark if you want to have a look, the sun shining against the windows made it a struggle to see some of the stuff at the back)

God knows how much any of this stuff is going for online (I couldn't see a link to the website/actual store in the windows) but I think I can live without paying a couple of grand for a scrunched up Morrissey poster and similar.

Good bit of positive publicity, and dare I say it, tourism, for CR0!

I knew Banksy early on from my Uni days, and although he was never accepted by the graff community 'purists', he transcends street art more than anyone else ever has arguably in history, and I include his chief-influence Blek, Baquiat and Haring with Warhol in their corner, and people whose imagery has helped sway public political opinion with Shepard Fairey recently, going back to Rodchenko and Tschichold etc. He has borrowed heavily from predecessors, but which artist hasn't?!

Amazing to think how much influence arose from that small corner of Bristol in those few years, from Bansky and all the other street artists and skaters / bmx riders, to the trip-hop of Portishead, Massive Attack, and DnB of the likes of Roni Size.

There are many parallels between Bristol and Croydon, not just the size being similar, but also art and culture and outlook (albeit Bristol being more chilled), so I'm glad he chose Croydon to do this. I'm just waiting for someone to nab everything he's put there, especially after his almost 'come and steal me' plea!

Walked past it on my way home last night. Some interesting displays, couple of not so interesting ones. Can see it being busy on Church St this Saturday. Still, I guess it's good for the area.

It amazes me how someone who basically goes around stencilling things on people property get famous. If i went and rag rolled the outside of Mayday hospital no one would be creaming their knickers.

Autocorrect seems to have altered "shit" to "nice" for some reason.

Yes. Paint on canvas, not other peoples property. The one of the chimps in Westminster is quality, and not vandalism. Stick to that.
