Exit through the Gift Shop

Due to the ridiculous queues thanks to Orange wednesday at Cineworld I didn't get to see Alice in Wonderland as hoped last night. Instead we headed to the Broadway cinema and watched my second choice: Exit through the Gift Shop. It was very enjoyable, would certainly recommend it. Great to get an insight into the world of graffiti, hear from Banksy and be entertained by the crazy Thierry Guetta aka Mr. Brainwash.
From the film I have mixed emotions about Thierry's success...financially it seems undeniable but I'm unsure as to whether he warrants being put in the same box as Banksy.
But hey thats just me!
Here's a piece from Banksy that did on the West Bank barrier in Israel.
His work is certainly so often brave in location and the artwork amusing and/or poignant.

I think I'm a Banksy fan.
So come and leave some graffiti on my wall Banksy...please!
I promise I won't reveal your identity!

Love your review of exit through the gift shop, maybe you should pop down to Brighton in the summer there is quite a bit of banksys' grafetti around. x
