Banksy on artists and advertisers

“The thing I hate the most about advertising is that it attracts all the bright, creative and ambitious young people, leaving us mainly with the slow and self-obsessed to become our artists.. Modern art is a disaster area. Never in the field of human history has so much been used by so many to say so little.”

Not that I agree… Just that I’m always surprised to find myself listening so closely when this guy says something.
