Banksy, a graffiti artist, does some good work, but the problem I have is that it doesn't appear that he is getting permission from some of the property owners that he is painting on! I get the whole thing about his work having some meaning to it, but the fact of the matter is that if he is not getting people's permission to paint their property, which looks like the case, then is it not called defacing property, because in my opinion that is what it looks like.

Banksy is in New York City now and has been for a few weeks, and only a few property owners seem to have known about his plans to paint art on their property, while others were clueless about his plans.

With all this said I do think he does good work, but there is a time and place for everything, and if property owners are clueless about his plans to put art on their property, then I don't think that is the time and place to do so.
