Banksy-DASK and Taking Out Billboards One By One

Seems like there are a lot of billboard takeovers happening these days which i couldn't be more excited about. While the most widely noticed is probably the newest BANKSY hit. While I am excited to see the artist returning to sow of his earlier tactics, the video from TMZ showing people fighting over his work is just a shame.

I saw the Banksy movie. This guy Is talented, but technically these are still vigilantiism. When KeithHaring painted the subway boards at the beginning of his career, at least they were empty and black. Don't make heroes of guys/girls working at night with face covering. They're not much different from any other petty criminal. And most of the time their work is not the next Haring. 2wrongsdontmakeitright.
