Banksy on advertising


Nice little rant on the advertising biz from Banksy.

Rumour has it he's a graphic designer by trade.

So it could be a case of the pot calling the kettle.

Regardless of that he makes a fair point.

Interesting thing is the trademarks, copyright and intellectual property he talks about don't belong to agencies.

Nor do they belong to the creative people who originated the ideas.

No. They belong to the brands and the companies that own them.

Which means the person who coined Have a break, have a Kit Kat back in the sixties has never ever received any royalties.

Now that's a real problem in my eyes!

Thanx to Mona for the pic

Nor, he fails to mention, do they belong to graffiti artists.

In another light he also said this three or four tears ago:
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.

And one of the resons banksy's work resonates so strongly is because an advertising sensibility. It cuts through, gets noticed and creates talkability.

AH! But if only ALL advertising were SO good...I don't find Banksy's work 'visual pollution' at all unlike most of the wank out there.
