Green graffiti

It seems as if I’m running some kind of anti-Banksy campaign here, and I’m really not; he’s fab, and so are the Art Hate guys. We cannot live on polite watercolours alone. But images from Tehran such as this

and these and these (at the excellent FryingPanFire blog) rather put received notions of rebellion and criminality into some kind of perspective.

PS: That said, here’s more evidence that Banksy’s outlaw brand has eaten itself.
