Banksy & Exit Through the Gift Shop


Have you seen Exit Through the Gift Shop? It's a documentary by British street artist Banksy, & it's crazy fascinating.

Banksy is arguably the most well known street artist (Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie are collectors) & Exit Through the Gift Shop was even nominated for an Academy Award.


His pictures are intriguing & any wall he paints suddenly becomes valuable.

But the whole conversation that swirls around Banksy (Is this legal? Is it ART?) is the most interesting part & Exit Through the Gift Shop does a sweet job of walking you through the story & asking the questions.

I finally watched it (it's on Netflix Instant at the moment, check it out...) & I'm sort of dying to discuss it. I love seeing the weird & interesting ways people find to live with creativity.

Have you seen it? What do you think?

  1. I love Banksy and the first image you posted has been my livejournal avatar for way too long. I was looking for something to watch at the moment, so... Exit Through The Gift Shop it is! Thanks :)
