Why is Banksy a good artist?
I have a whole spiel about why I think the institution of art is biased and ultimately meaningless, but I won’t go into that here.
The fact that I dismiss a lot of art doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate an aesthetic or that I don’t see that art can be a politic and can be used as social commentary. Still, I have to ask, why is Banksy such a famed artist? I don’t get it. I can spray-paint a word on a wall, but I wouldn’t be regarded as a great artist.
Explain him to me, please. This is an honest question. I need to be schooled. Just don’t be a douche about it.
