Q essay: Hey Banksy - stop dissing Canada
Tuesday, October 29, 2013 |
Banksy doesn't like the look of the new One World Trade Center -- he made that clear in a recent editorial about the "shy skyscraper". But why did the British graffiti artist feel the need to diss the structure at Canada's expense?
"That building is a disaster," the artist wrote. "Well no, disasters are interesting. One World Trade Center is a non-event. It's vanilla. It looks like something they would build in Canada."
Jian calls him on the bland characterization, and retorts, "Really Banksy? ... we was friends."
