There is Always Hope

I just discovered this British graffiti artist, Banksy. I don't know much about the artist except that I love what I see. I've always admired graffiti art: loud colorful letters. It draws me in. This is entirely different from my expectations of the medium. I think some of pieces have a biting silence about them that scream for attention. It's such a juxtaposition to what I know as graffiti art (but then again, what do I know). While some of his pieces are less ethereal, I prefer this image: the message and the lightness.
