Why pay $60 for a Banksy (fake or not fake) when you can steal it? After all, Pablo Picasso said that, ‘good artists copy, great artists steal’. Well, at least that’s what the guys over at stealbanksy.com believe. The site tracks all the Banksy artworks across the five boroughs and gives us the status/condition they are in.
After that, it’s every man for himself in getting a piece of art history. This might seem a bit off, you know, stealing artwork. Or maybe just stealing, in general. But Banksy’s style is subversive and rebellious. If we’re to take him up on his philosophy, wouldn’t that include being subversive enough to steal his own artwork?
