An episodic account of a philanthropic art lover trying to save a Banksy public work plays like an ongoing chapter that began w/Exit Through the Gift Shop. Coming on the heels of HBO's Year of Banksy, a doc which followed Banksy month long art exhibit in New York, one of the storylines followed one of Banksy's works taken by some opportunistic money grabbers & the art dealer who becomes their mouthpiece. Although it is a double edged sword of an artist painting works in the public hoping to leave a mark in the world only to have the same public take the work to profit from it, one comes away feeling conflicted. A good view but where does it end?
Internationally known graffiti artist, Banksy, left his mark on San Francisco in April 2010. Little did he know that 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 NY gallerist 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.
