As the other thread seems solely occupied with que shenangigans and the thirst for expensive paper. I though a thread solely dedicated to meaning is in order. I think it's quite obvious... art as a weapon etc, but as with art different people see different things:
Below is my take... what's yours?
Art not money:
The millionaires of this government are making the poorest pay for the richest mistakes. Violent attacks of the welfare state, arts funding virtual bulldozed, and a university education pricing out most of our youth, which in turn will inevitable lead to more anti social behavior and alienation.
Art is Banksy’s weapon; a powerful tool in the fight for peace, justice and equality and can inpower the most disadvantaged with its love and creation.
In times of great austerity… Choose your weapon…
A close friend of mine who also plays in a band you might know and love, does these little reports from their round the world tour, this one features the charity that Banksy is giving all the profits of this print to, I think for me, and I would guess for Mr B as well, there actions and goals best sum up the print.
f**k us greedy little expensive print loving desperate apolitical chumps… this is what true art is all about…

I actually thought that it was to do with the similarity of people using a big scary dog as a weapon without having any fighting prowess to artists using references to past artists as a weapon to carry their art message without having any skill either. Both are a mirror of each other.
Daniel Silk: In my opinion, Imbue, Ryca and Mobstr would be artists producing the freshest art in the past couple of years. Who would be your top 3?

Daniel Silk: I have been having a big tidy up in the Banksy forum part of the site over the past few days. I think you will find more threads in the correct places, but still lots more to do.

paulagibbs: From someone who used to build websites, this site is not easy to navigate, and all those flashing ads at the top are annoying and rather low-end looking. I am guessing the only people who are going to visit are artists trying to sell their art.

toughart: I thought there was a issue with the website but this new Layout for this forum blows. Why are the new threads and post so hidden? This site is too difficult to navigate now. Bad update.

Daniel Silk: What Artists do you think are leading the Urban Art scene with new ideas? Rather than reproducing old images.

pgm: hey guys, quick question: I have a For Sale thread posted on June 26. Since then I updated the post with new and sold pieces and commented to bump it. But it is now stuck on page 11 of the Art for Sale thread (and noone sees it). Is "bumping turned off" somehow?
