Art by UK-Based Street Artist Banksy Called “Rubbish”

Writing on Comment is Free, a Web site of the British newspaper The Guardian, Charlie Brooker has argued that the work of the hyped-up and hot street artist known as Banksy is “rubbish” that “looks dazzlingly clever to idiots.” The article makes some keen points, some worth merit, and some worth debating, but it is not very convincing as it attempts to explain why Banksy is overrated and his work crap. The tone of the piece is hurtful and angry and it lacks the sophisticated reasoning of an instructive critique. It’s rather funny, actually, and reads like an Internet troll.
