His messages are pretty offensive... I don't get the point of his whole sense of art.

I love Banksy's work, personally. Some graffiti is quite lovely.

What this guy does is less aesthetically pleasing. I suppose the brands he targets can afford to clean it up. Eh. I don't feel it is *that* big of a deal. No one is hurt. And, in a way, it does complement the skate culture (oddly) implied in the Celine ads. I mean, what were they thinking putting skateboards with Celine in those ads; they hardly mix.

I like skate culture.
I like Celine.

But they seem very different.

Fashion: Don’t you recognize me? Death: You should know that I don’t see very well and I can’t wear glasses. Fashion: I’m Fashion, your sister. Death: My sister? Fashion: Yes. You and I together keep undoing and changing things down here on earth although you go about it in one way and I another. Giacomo Leopardi, “Dialogue Between Fashion and Death.”abridged

I agree, some graffiti is really nice I like free expression in street art, but something about this is just annoying to me.
But I do agree, the pink for Celine was perfect!

And I do like skate culture also so the mix for me was exciting!

I'm not saying that I agree with the way he chose to express himself or attempting to vindicate his crime, but he's probably opposed to the fashion industry stealing underground street culture, appropriating it (i.e. swagger jacking), and then shamelessly marketing it as exclusive (read: luxe pricing) to mass audiences.
I totally agree, though, I also don't love Kidult. . .

I am obsessed with Celine, but having Daria pose with the skateboard was really stupid. At the very least, she should have been riding it.

Ugh. . . "swagger jacking" is sooo fashion.

Artist? Nothing more than a vandal making a name for oneself.
