    Anyone watch this a couple of nights ago? Was really interesting and a bit shocking towards the end, although I understand from Robbo's facebook page that he is now out of ICU.

    Worth a watch if you missed it.... Graffiti Wars - Channel 4

    I saw it, and was amazed at the status Banksy now has. I knew he was popular but I never knew they were protecting his works with perspex and even repairing them'.

    It was interesting to see how much of a divide there is between graffiti and street art.

    I didn't see this but has anyone seen Exit Through The Gift Shop?

    I saw that too, quite interesting, and frankly absurd that people would pay such amounts for work from a nobody, most of which I suspect was still drying.

    Just goes to show the power a good endorsement can have.

    There's a whole debate though, is Mr Brainwash real? Or, is the film a fictional Banksy set up? lol.

    haha yeah, people aren't sure if he's real or not :)

    Come to the think of it, the name Mr Brainwash is a little questionable, almost like it's suggesting we're brainwashed in to believing he's real.

    Almost certain that brainwash is essentially banksy showing how absurd people can be when it comes to buying art. I'm almost 100%...90% lol

    Yeah, I think it's a fake documentary as well :) Very good nonetheless.

    Well - if you want to know - one of my Graphic Designers is a former Banksy colleague.

    What do you want to ask?

    Watched that documentary. Robbo's retaliations were really poor. Totally missed the point of banksy going over his old design under the canal saying "why has he incorporated my design"...

    Watched Exit through the gift shop a few weeks ago, thought it was awesome, and me and my boyfriend sat up speculating over whether Mr Brainwash was real - the Madonna album cover he supposedly did is a genuine album cover, so that's interesting, but as for whether the documentary is real, wow, we will probably never know!

    So Minuteman - ask if the documentary was real, or Banksy larking about with us!

    Brainwash is a real guy - but... it was exaggerated.

    "What you have to realise is that Banksy Produced the film, but they were slagging Bansky off. All it was - they look like they're enemies - but not at all - it's banter. Banksy is promoting both at same time. Though looking bad, Banksy will still associating - reflected glory."

    "True - grafitti is from hard core b-boy hip-hop culture and they wouldn't appreciate poncy student types muscling in".
