Banksy Quote: “There’s obviously nothing wrong with selling your art – only an idiot with a trust fund would tell you otherwise. But it’s confusing to know how far you should take it.”
Banksy Quote: “The holy grail is to spend less time making the picture than it takes people to look at it.”
Banksy Quote: “If you have a statue in the city centre you could go past it every day on your way to school and never even notice it, right. But as soon as someone puts a traffic cone on its head, you’ve made your own sculpture.”
Banksy Quote: “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 never 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 Quote: “This is a big surprise I don’t agree with the concept of award ceremonies, but I’m prepared to make an exception for the ones I’m nominated for. The last time there was a naked man covered in gold paint in my house, it was me.”

Banksy Quote: “You ask a lot of little kids today what they want to be when they grow up and they say “I want to be famous.” You ask them for what reason and they don’t know or care. I think Andy Warhol got it wrong: in the future so many people are going to become famous that one day everybody will end up being anonymous for fifteen minutes.”
Banksy Quote: “As far as I can tell the only thing worth looking at in most museums of art is all the schoolgirls on daytrips with the art departments.”
Banksy Quote: “All I know about what people think of my gear is what a couple of my friends tell me, and one of them always wants to borrow money, so I’m not sure how reliable he is.”
Banksy Quote: “The human race is the most stupid and unfair kind of race. A lot of the runners don’t even get decent sneakers or clean drinking water. 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. It’s not surprising a lot of people have given up competing altogether and gone to sit in the grandstand, eat junk and shout abuse. What the human race needs is a lot more streakers.”

Banksy Quote: “This revolution is for display purposes only.”
