Graffiti

Banksy is the best-known (and best?) of the graffiti artists whose work has blurred the distinction between art and vandalism.  Local authorities don’t like graffiti.  Cambridge City Council’s web site says: ‘Graffiti is illegal. It spoils property and can be costly to remove. … We aim to remove offensive graffiti – specifically anything that might be considered racist, sexist, obscene or inflammatory – within one day of receiving a report … All possible steps will be taken to ensure that any damage to surfaces is kept to a minimum.’  ‘Vote to Love’ by Banksy will be in this year’s RA Summer show with a £350M price tag – a two fingered gesture to the commercial art world and a polite way of saying NFS.
