Motivos para amar a Banksy

Porque el libro que me traje a modo de souvenir de mis vacaciones, dice cosas como esta:

Art is not like other culture because its success is not made by its audience.
The public fill concert halls and cinemas every day, we read novels by the millions and buy records by the billions. We the people, affect the making and the quality of most of our culture, but not our Art.

The Art we look at is made by only a select few. A small group create, promote, purchase, exhibit and decide the success of Art. Only a few hundred people in the world have any real say. When you go to an art gallery you are simply a tourist looking at the trophy of a few millionaires.

Luchar con las "armas" del amor o el amor antes que la lucha, o aún en la lucha.
