"When asked 'What do you think about people selling the art you put on the street?' his reply was this: 'As a kid I always dreamt of growing up to be a character in Robin Hood. I just never realised I'd end up playing one of the gold coins.' This sharp witted response is typical of an artist who makes very clever visual statements at the expense of the oppressors in this world. From the art in Gaza to his Rat images in the UK, Banksy never fails to get people talking about issues that really are a part of our global society. Art that truly opens your eyes and your mind." - James Thurlby-Brooks, Black Mirror Ball Productions
