Quite possibly the most pointless bit of writing ever? Pretty cruel thing to do in my eyes.
I don't care myself about who he is or isn't, but everyone's been speculating on who he is for ages and ages, n'est pas?
yeah, definite proof it's him!
'The paper says it has identified the "guerrilla artist" from a photograph taken four years ago in Jamaica, which shows a man kneeling by a spray can.'
gets a bit dull when you live in Bristol
if they thought it would shift more papers.
I did think it was a cruel and pointless thing to do. i think anyone with an interest in Banksy liked the fact that he remained an enigma and those that had no interest in Banksy wouldn't have given a toss either way. Unless, of course, they were of the mindset that Banksy should be punished for acts of vandalism and criminal damage, which i full expect to be the Daily Mails next move on the matter.
Details please - for those of us for whom actually buying and reading The Mail is tantamount to genocide.
giving out personal information about someone, including private medical facts, and naming friends was a bit off.
who, i'm told, comes up with the ideas bit doesn't physically make his pieces. he has assistants that do it for him.
so it's quite plausible.
who did some of Hirsts stuff for him. i never knew that he did that at all!
i'm going to say 'ooh maybe!' which means no. as i am too lazy.
well, that their styles were similar, anyway. i didn't really think any more about it
was one of my favourite things I've ever seen on telly. It made me like him a lot more, I think. I'm not really sure why.
Renaissance artists had them, the artist would do the outlines and assistants would do colouring and filling to help them, they would then finesse it at the end.
I love the way people crack the Hirst thing out like he was the first person to do that.
ho, ho, ho, it's a banana
student hippy with rage against the machie politics
AND YOU DO WHAT THEY TOLD YOU
i live in oxford in the term time and it has plenty of student hippies, spraypainting TEXACO FUEL OPPRESSION and BULLIES IN BLUE on the walls
keyboard is playing up
drench them in a bucket of piss
The shed loads of money he is making of the back of stealing and commercialising blek le rats style will help him deal with the cruelty of this situation.
He is as famous for being annonymous as he is for his actual work so I think its pretty reasonable to want to know who the real banksey is.
Its no surprise he is middle clas... all anti-capitalists are.
Louise Redknapp is 'glowing', apparently.
to say "UGLY CHILD". so they compared him to the less good looking parent. nice and subtle
It would have been fairer not to comment, but...no.
That ain't a pretty kid though, is it? Poor thing.
I haven't got a clue about art. But his stuff looks good to me.
Come on Chris, America has got about as much culture as yogurt!
If it's really Banksy, the police can now arrest him for all the mess he's made.

any other graffitti people you prefer?
that's the kind of stuff I tend to dislike more...
coverage and info on Burial I'm not to fussed if they unvail Banksy I like his stuff but I aint fussed that he is anon
an artist's work is pretty much as old as art itself. If Banksy relies on help it's hardly revolutionary.
that the fact that we said the same thing at the same time....look up there a bit....^^^^^
if I remember correctly
is this him? http://tinyurl.com/5z46c5
...A TESCOS BAAAG
saying that they will keep his idenity a secret and now they do this?!
I hate daily mail.
you just buy another paper? and save the money of a train fare?
What a cunt. Vandalism plain and simple. Should all be scrubbed off.
Wouldn't let the fucker paint my house.
... to you!
died for that!
