    No, I've never seen this guy before. Is he some kind of 'tag artist' or something, or does he just photograph graffiti and make up funny captions?

      I think I may actually have heard of him... it looks interesting, I was looking through some of the links and www.freewayblogger.com is especially interesting.

        On second thoughts I have read of him in the papers he is quite well known I believe.

          I've seen his stuff before, but the website has expanded a great deal since I looked at it. Unfortunately, it confirms my suspicion that he's a lovey (friend of Jamie Oliver, Sara Cox, pass the sickbag, please..). A little bit of rebellion for the bruschetta set. I'm glad his statue was stolen. I hope it was smashed to pieces by a real anarchist.

          (Sorry, folks, I have bit of a an attitude problem when it comes to contemporary Art [note capital 'A', I have nothing against tattooists, genuine graffitiists, painters of elephants and steam trains, album/book cover designers, comic book artists and people who draw pictures of Elric, honest!]. I love to wind up the bright young things who are paid to loiter around outside of Waterloo station trying to lure unsuspecting daytrippers into the pretentious recesses of the Saatchi gallery. They are of the same annoying genus as Jehovah's Witnesses, Socialist Worker sellers and 'charity muggers'.)

            Banksy's pretty well known, especially dahn London, for his stencil-style graffitos. He did the artwork for one of the recent Blur albums, Think Tank I believe.

            Decent stuff, although putting it in a gallery seems a little pointless - shurely meant to be viewed on a rusting iron railway bridge or down a menacing, dark alley?
