Is Banksy's street art cool for kids?

Is Banksy's street art cool for kids? - Over there to Here Banksy’s street art is feted in Britain. If you see one – then quickly take a photo. It might be painted over by local authorities. Or even other graffiti artists.

‘Take this society’ was painted on a roundabout in west London in 2008. Within days it no longer existed. Councillor Greg Smith of Hammersmith and Fulham Council told a London newspaper: “This sort of graffiti vandalism is not art.”

This month a work of art – allegedly by Banksy – sold for over one million dollars in London. It was cut out of the street wall and sold in a private auction. The sale caused a public uproar. Not because of the price. Now the ‘authorities,’ or in this case a member of parliament said: “You have deprived a community of an asset that was given to us for free and greatly enhanced an area that needed it.”

Would you pay over one million dollars to own a Banksy at home? Even if he refused to confirm if it’s authentic? What if instead, you could just go for a walk and see his latest works?
