Like street art? Banksy? ever wondered who he was? or how he can manipulate trends? Well I got news for you - he manipulated the guy who was documenting him and the documenter - became the documented... this is one crazy ass documnetary, one which I have been meaning to watch again. And now, I think I shall Smile

No spoilers save for what I gave you already Smile

This guy deserves even more recognition than he already deserves - the way his mind works is so ingenious.

Dismaland was grotesquely creative as well.

Agreed. Banksy is a politically motivated artist who sees the ironies and double standards polarise within his creative bubble - and an artist cannot ever ignore that which manifests within his creative bubble - hence, his works reflect some of the most controversial nd thought provoking street art.

Genius, yes, because he was able to relay through his art, that which others wished they had the courage to say out loud. His art united many people of races together who would otherwise have no interest in street art - the message behind his art did all the work. take for example the apartheid wall stunt he pulled off in Israel. It made the world news. And interest in the Israel/Palestine conflict magnified as search engines struggled to cope with the influx of searches related to.

He understands controversy, remains unafraid of experimenting with it - whilst remaining quietly in the shadows - yes, Banksy is very much a puppeteer - for all the right reasons. MrBrainWash being just one small proof.

EDIT: Social Engineering through Art - yes, it's genius.
