Here is another example of how Banksy’s art has been capitalised:
The point of graffiti is that it is illicit, anti-establishment and creates art for the masses without being monetised.
All of Banksy’s art is worth a fortune. He puts his graffiti in places hard to take away and makes it difficult to cash in on. Most people manage to find a way by completely cutting out walls and stuff.
The message of his work seems to be overlooked. Graffiti is cheap, mostly easy to do and reaches people. His work alludes to anarchism, trying to open eyes of the masses to the pitfalls of its current state.
All people can see is how much is it worth?
