As far as your bank account in 20 years, you better start buying up OG's 'cause I just don't see a spongebob screen print selling for Banksy $$$ as Sotheby's anytime soon :lol:
what do you mean by ground-breaking? banksy was never ground-breaking with stencil design and yet people gravitates to his images like he's the first person to do it. for the record, cavemen were the first graffiti artist. furthermore, thought provocative images or images that makes you laugh was done years ago before banksy ever came to the scene. personally i think banksy is just the MBW of the UK. sure he has more artistic merit but if you asked someone that's not in the art scene i bet they wouldn't be able to tell you the difference.

btw, RIP Macho Man Randy Savage!
If you don't see the overall genius in Banksy's body of works since '98, then we don't have anything to discuss...

Seems like the people that hype MBW and others are more concerned about the monetary value and the size of their bank accounts more than anything. This has nothing to do with art. Ill take a hand drawn gig poster by kevin tong over a twenty minute Photoshop by MBW's lackeys any day.

dundun,
how long have you been a "pro" art collector? Of which artists do you own originals?

KAWS has stuff at the MOCA show
No smart person would attempt to invalidate his importance within the scene of street art

it's not that i don't get it, i do. i just don't see what's so special about it. i only started following his work in 05, so if he was doing something groundbreaking in 98 then i missed it. i do admit his messages are funny tho

Let me assure you, Dun's collection is far from crap. Just because he doesn't list his collection on EB does not mean his collection is crap. Even I don't list my entire collection here. What's the point to that? There is none. Or he could be like Gonzo and keep his hoard of concert and gig posters "private".

You're NAIVE to think that they DON'T know more than people around here. That's probably the dumbest thing i've ever heard on ANY board about art at ANY TIME and you're not even worthy of a reply anymore cuz I see what I'm dealing with. You're basically saying the PROS don't know fudge, but WE do. Jesus drymounting christ.
DunDun. You pretty much dumb dumb. And c'mon, you about as much of a PRO as the chick who cleans out the office bathroom at the end of the day. Or would that be an engineer? :lol:

P.S. And seriously, your collection is CRAP :wink:

Jesus drymounting christ you can't even read. See what I'm dealing with here. I didn't say I was a PRO, and I was referring to people who buy and sell art for a living. ***Face Palm*** Over and out. Sad you two douchebags have CO ties. The state is cool, but the people here drymounting suck balls.

whenever you deal with collectors money is always involved. i know some people here despise that but that's just the way we do things. it's actually a combination of aesthetics and investment, at least to me it is.

Hey dumbassssssss. You're the one who said he/she/it was a PRO. See above for BOLD italics. I love morons that couldn't talk there way out of a pill box... and I know for a fact that CO will be a MUCH better place sans jerkoffs like yourself :wink:
