So I get a tip about an authentic Banksy getting ripped in half. I yell and tell them I’ll be there in 20 minutes. Luckily we were in Los Angeles to witness this. Pulled out the Lumix LX5 and the 5Dmk2 and here it is…

  1. WOW this is awful, Banksy and Shepard Fairy are some of the best living artist to date, and its saddening to see noobs like this defile great art… granted its just a print or a cheap knock off. Banksy art work holds merit on its own by poking fun at social and political aspects of life. This video holds no function as is just ruining art for arts sake.

    You wouldn’t grab a Warhol and set it on fire, to prove a point that your trying to defiant of the “man” so why do this.

    so even if you are trying to be satirical or even funny, its not working. As a graphic designer its insulting and I truly hope you rethink your next video.

  2. ahah not a fatlace tatoo. but i believe a watermark. you fatlace peeps sure are smart. good stuff +1

  3. Wow, that was 1 minute of my life i’ll never get back. The shit you guys do for publicity is fucking lame.

  4. art appreciation is relative. everyone has an opinion. design and art are two totally different things… and this isn’t a dis like someone buffing his work.

  5. This wasn’t about appreciating art. It was about ‘i got a call about some chick who is gonna tear a piece of art up, so let me go throw an illest hoodie on her and a sticker on her table so i can try and generate some publicity for my site’.

    LAME. Go back to making stickers and keychains.

  6. It’s obvious from the comments that people are finally catching on. All fads end in time.

  7. That is the dumbest thing ever…

    Fatlace stick to stickers get off the true arts balls.
