It's not surprising a lot of people have given up competing altogether and gone to sit in the grandstand, eat junk food and shout abuse.
Banksy quotes
People who should be shot: Fascist thugs, religious fundamentalists, people who write lists telling you who should be shot.
Banksy
'I got home at last and crawled into bed next to my girlfriend. I told her I'd had an epiphany that night [about using stencils] and she told me to stop taking that drug 'cos it's bad for your heart.'




Banksy quotes
Some runners are born with a massive head start, every possible help along the way and still the referees seem to be on their side.
Banksy
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 quality of most of our culture, but not our art.
Banksy quotes
I'd been painting rats for three years before someone said "that's a clever anagram of art" and I had to pretend I'd known that all along.
Banksy
People say graffiti is ugly, irresponsible and childish. But that's only if it's done properly.
Banksy quotes
"The greatest crimes in the world are not committed by people breaking the rules. It's people who follow orders that drop bombs and massacre villages. As a precaution to ever committing major acts of evil it is our solemn duty never to do what we're told, this is the only way we can be sure"
Banksy
Think from outside the box, collapse the box and take a fucking knife to it.

Become good at cheating and you never need to become good at anything else.
Banksy
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 cabinet of a few millionaires...




Banksy quotes
People who get up early in the morning cause war, death and famine.
Banksy
I sucked a lot of breasts to get where I am today.
Banksy quotes
We donít need any more heroes; we just need someone to take out the recycling.
Banksy
The human race is an unfair and stupid competition. A lot of runners don't even get decent sneakers or clean drinking water.
Banksy quotes
If you want someone to be ignored, then build a life-size bronze statue of them and stick it in the middle of town.
Banksy
We can't do anything to change the world until capitalism crumbles. In the meantime we should all go shopping to console ourselves.
Banksy quotes
People who enjoy waving flags don't deserve to have one.
Banksy
Conversations don't get any better as you get older.
Banksy
T.V. has made going to the theatre seem pointless, photography has pretty much killed painting but graffiti has remained gloriously unspoilt by progress.
