Sorry, but graffiti is graffiti and should not be encouraged. It is 'distruction' of public/private property. Just because it is from one 'artist' vs a local gang, should not make it 'art' vs a tag. After all, it seems Banksy did nothing more than tag PC.

We disagree. Guerilla art has a long and vibrant history in PC. Cranny was a pioneer. Many others too, known and anonymous; sculpture, murals, graffiti: this enriches the town and provides the genuine "funky" note our local politicians so often tout. We're very lucky to have the work by an artist of Banksy's caliber. Let's celebrate it.

The problem is that if it were left at that, yeah it probably would be cool, however, condoning it at all opens the door for every other untalented idiot to tag historic buildings. Unless I'm mistaken, Cranny's stuff was all sculpture, which is not vandalism, so I would disagree, guerilla art does not have a history here, vibrant or otherwise.

Banksy's an artist. Some might not like what type of art he promotes but our younger generation does. I think it really neat that some young people took the lead and camped out gathering signatures to do what they feel was right. And they went about it the right way.

Do the property owners have any say in this? I would hope so.

I saw the one outside Java Cow today. Banksy's art is great, definitely worth keeping. Well done Macey.
