Graffiti is Art

Banksy artwork painted over in graffiti clean-up drive | Art and design |
The work, attributed to street artist Banksy, depicted Paddington Bear with the caption "Migration is not a crime" and was painted on to a wall owned by Julian Chatt in Glastonbury, Somerset. But well-meaning volunteers painted over the artwork as part of the council's drive to rid the area of graffiti.
What a fucking joke. Is banksy the only graffiti artist in the world that's allowed to do it? Why is Banksy art and every other graffiti artist a criminal? I imagine this is exactly the sort of hypocrisy that Banksy is trying to highlight, but is completely lost on the kind of losers who pay for his work.

Anyway, surely this is criminal damage? If this wall was his private property and some bastards came and painted over it they should be in prison. Fucking cunts, "I don't like graffiti so no one else is allowed to! Destroy it all!"
