I recently got into a twitter conversation with a Banksy advocate; I asked the question “does art need permission?” he then asked “who owns the public space anyway?”
Sometimes questions make me stop.
Sometimes art makes me stare.

In my opinion the graffiti – which is vandalism – has transformed it – in the way that only art can do.
Does art need permission?
Who owns public space?
