have you noticed how Banksy's not puttting his Banksy tag at the end of his pieces now. Is this a cop out, I mean if he gets caught he could just say he's someone else, and doing it for the first time, rather than getting the stick for all his past works. Seems the signature of authenticity is just being replaced by the piece popping up on his website.
Well, yeah I think most people noticed and quite possibly because of what you said or also so if he has a few people helping, feels a bit guilty signing...who know.... ;D
does anyone know if the DOLK pieces have been scrubbed/tagged over yet? as the banksy ones seem to have been wrecked in a matter of hours, and DOLK's appear to have survived for days without being tampered with- goes to show how its pure jealousy of them to have tagged over the banksy's... yet as they aren't aware of DOLK they leave his alone? maybe i'm wrong

seen 2009 at BLKriver festival Vienna based graffiti & street-artist BUSK takes a reflexive approach to the subject. In having his portrait taken in public space (i.e. Vienna’s historic city center St.Stephens Square) by another ’street-artist’, BUSK’s action raises questions on the economic mechanisms of adding and siphoning value in arts and the current hype on the global arts market which accompanies present day graffiti & street art.
