Ran across a website for a british graffiti artist named Banksy. Really good art and commentary. I particularly liked some of the stencils and the quote "People seem to think if they dress like a revolutionary they don't actually have to act like one." I also liked the vandalized flea market oil paintings like the chopper addition above.

Found via Tom Ory's World

yes banksy is the most amazing artist/activist i have ever come across. he has a couple books out one is called "banging your head against the wall" and the other "existentialism" his art is so amazing it makes me feel wrong to think of myself as a stencil graffiti artist .his awesome messages amazing detail and the size placement of his paintings really is enough to change the world
