I judge each piece of art on it's own merit and let's face it the Banksy and the Walker for this auction are both very poor and half hearted. The worrying thing is that these are two of the biggest names in the scene and this is quite a high profile charity auction.
If you knew nothing about Urban/Street art and saw these 2 pieces would you be converted?
Some people really do have it in for Nick Walker, don't they.
Did he shag all your wives/girlfriends in the bogs at the last BRP show?
Seriously - using a thread about a Banksy canvas to have a pop at NW?? What's that about?
Personally I don't think Nick's TMA series has grown tired at all. Just like I don't think Monet's studies of sunlight and haystacks grew tired (before anyone starts I'm not comparing Walker to Monet).
On the subject of "Girafitti" - it's obviously not his best by some margain, but I bet it doesn't bomb like some of you are predicting. Nick clearly has mass appeal - his art is very accessible and because of that it crosses over into the mainstream (maybe that's what his detractors have a problem with). With that in mind I could quite easily see a few bidders, possibly with more money than sense, who want a piece of the "urban art" action taking a shine to that daft great giraffe.
