Banksy Interview – New Facts?

Infamous street artist Banksy recently did an interview with the British newspaper Sunday Times, which – As you can read in the corresponding article – was made by e-mail.

Banksy talks certainly about his “Exit Through The Gift Shop” street art documentary, why he “don’t makes as much money as people think”, why the “amount of security cameras” gets on his nerves and even whether he trained art formally at school…

When you will read that Banksy interview, you don’t get to know anything really new, but nevertheless it is really interesting and funny:

“I have a large collection of famous art at home, but they’re all fakes. I make them myself. If I like a picture I grab a photo, project it up and paint it. Sometimes I change the colours to fit with the curtains. I do it partly because I’m tight and partly because if the Basquiats and Picassos in the sitting room were real I’d be too scared to ever leave the house.” (Sunday Times)
