An Interesting Take on Street Art
21 June 2017 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

Internationally known graffiti artist Banksy left his mark on San Francisco. This act of vandalism would spark a chain of events that includes one of his rats being removed from a wall, museums ignorantly turning down a free Banksy street work, and a New York gallery director who has made it his business model to remove Banksy street works from all over the globe doing whatever it takes to get the rat in his possession.

I suppose I would consider myself a fan of street art. I enjoy pop art in general and much of what these street artists do -- Banksy included -- is very eye-catching. There is no doubt in my mind that he is worthy of being in a museum. But some interesting points are raised here.

Mostly: Who owns the art? If the canvas used is a home or business and no permission was given, does the art become the property of the homeowner? This seems to make sense. But many other legal and moral ramifications abound -- if the art is illegal, can anyone own it at all?
