Facts: I’m an unabashed fan of Banksy. And I love the crochet art of Agata Olek. One of my favorite chroniclers of street art Luna Park recently snapped this picture where Olek adapted her style and paid homage to this famous piece by Banksy on the West Bank barrier wall.
Speaking of Banksy, this is the best defense I’ve come across of him:
How can you criticize an artist who gets into the limelight by staying out of the limelight, has a healthy secondary market, has good politics — I think — and seems to be slamming both the art world, and casting doubts upon every other street artist in the universe?
