Shawn Porter: Artist Profile

“His art works have become some of the most mechanically developed in the area, and some of the most metaphorically rich.

Exit Through the Gift Shop

“In the wake of it I feel sick. Banksy steps back on stage, a bit sheepishly, with a “sorry about that,” and the film closes. But Banksy couldn’t have made a better ‘exit.’ Right as his fame and value rises to a peak, he shows us what a sham that value system is. If the...
