WHEN I first saw Banksy work I thought he would be running out of steam within ten minutes. It is like a comedian telling bad jokes and you are bored of it after about four or five of them because you know the kind of jokes he is telling. But Banksy just keeps coming up with another piece and another piece and another piece – and they are always totally new and inventive and fresh. I think for any artist that is really rare. His work is a really highly-educated, visual barrage from an unknown force. In advertising they use that to sell s*** to us, whereas Banksy was using it on the street as a sort of free gift for everybody.
