I just finished watching the documentary “Exit Through the Giftshop” made by renowned street artist Banksy. I starting watching it a few months ago after hearing all of the hype surrounding it and I just got around to finishing it. I’ve been interested in street art and street artists for some time so I enjoyed the movie and would definitely recommend it. And while I don’t really know how I feel about Banksy and his art, he’s definitely a revolutionary that people will look back on and speak of in similar terms as Andy Warhol.

What the human race needs is a lot more streakers.”— Banksy
