Got me there. I went to state school

My general reaction to a Banksy is, "Neat." I could see a lot of his stuff on a shirt from Hot Topic. He does make a good point about commercial art though

    The thing I hate the most about advertising is that it attracts all the bright, creative and ambitious young people, leaving us mainly with the slow and self-obsessed to become our artists.. Modern art is a disaster area. Never in the field of human history has so much been used by so many to say so little.

God, how many people have I beaten over the head with that quote. To make it truly ironic I lifted it from the .sig of a friend who works in advertising.

As if it being from an Adbusters interview wasn't enough.
