    Default Banksy - art ?

    Good review on his latest.......

    Does anyone own some Banksy art, do people think it a worthwhile investment ?

    Banksy is fantastic. Not sure about investment potential. His star will rise but not sure if he will ever be worth mega bucks. Worth a punt.
    I am not qualified to give the above advice!

    Step back, have a think and adjust my own own attitude from time to time

    I'd agree he's fantastic, and saw his exhibition the other day near Knightsbridge, so keen to see this one....

    Good point. Some of his stuff I really, really like - other bits of it seem like meaningless vandalism.

    Past his best. He has lost the originality and spark that I think he had. Used to see his stuff all over Bristol in the mid-late 90's and it was always a pleasure. Don't even plan on going to see the exhibition in Bristol. The "living" chicken nuggets and hot dogs just leave me cold. Get what he is trying to do but it is not big and not clever.

    Got three prints of his here, cost me £30 each and they go for thousands now. The time has passed for picking his stuff up as an investment I reckon.

    Some of my faves:

    I don't "get" this one. Others are excellent.

    I am also not entirely convinced Banksy is one person either.
