St.Pauls protest monopoly board.. Banksy or Zeus?
~ and the new art phenomenon calling calling cards art ~
Thanks in no small part to London Dada since 2005, protest art becoming
the in-thing – but is this really a Banksy work on the cobbles outside St.Pauls,
or a Banksy copy of another street artist?
Graffiti artist Zeus in 2009 with a very similar creation.
“Someone” later adds a mock business card to the display.
… and from 691 just last week,
Agenda; The Business Card as art

Artists protesting against corporate theft, falling over themselves to nick ideas from each other
to enhance the value of their own ego brands and works?

Three years on …. artist Martin Creed posing by his 2014 ” Work No. 1812″ Brick Wall, outside the Hayward gallery.
Part of his ” What’s the point of it? ” multi-installation exhibition
( Creed’s work ) ” is supported by such state art luminaries as Julian Bell and Stephen Deucher who commissioned the runners in the Tate Britain Duveen gallery, (Work number 850), so it’s all right then. The fact that it is facile, irrelevant and meaningless drivel is never to be considered. Why don’t these stata art acolytes worry about the contempt with which their decadent gestures are held by the populace who are paying for it without being asked? ”
