Banksy is so overated.. its a pile of crap really.. if it were by any other artist you smile at it but not look twice. Some of his work is clever but you need your head looking at if you are gonna pay over $1000 for a 2 colour screen print that aint even signed. Oh, and the signed version is gonna set you back $5000+!!!

Sounds like another sub-par artist making simple fudge that sells for way too much... Reminds me of a certain Fairey...
I'll flip Banksy too, until these artists start putting their heart into their work like EMEK, I say FLIP AWAY!

pjtaper would have to sell all of his EMEK's just to afford a Banksy to flip.

I love how you can say how an artist does or doesn't "put their heart into their work" I would really like to see some of your art, you know the badass stuff that you are "putting your heart into" :lol: :roll:

I can't even draw a simple shape... EMEK doesn't put out a print a week, or should I say RUSH out like Fairey does...

Do you realize there is quite a bit of other art out there other than Emek? FYI….he's not the only artist in the world. Limiting your enjoyment and appreciation of art to only Emek is about as stupid as only listening to one band….say Pearl Jam for instance.

Banksy has released how many prints this year? 1? 2?

IMO, Fairey also employs more people than EMEK, so he may feel obligated to turn out more artwork so that his employees can feed themselves. Obey Giant is company, emek is an artist.

The irony of some of his work is pretty funny.. some people would buy nearly anything because its by banksy. 'I can't believe you morons buy this fudge'

Image

Probably one of his better ones.. but it will probably cost around $600 - 800 for a numbered only version of 600 (not even signed!!) from the POW site... thats if it ever gets released. Well worth buying to flip tho!!!
