Even Rich Folks Ride Banksy's Dick
Nelson Saiers, a Hedge Fund Manager, has written an open letter to Banksy pledging to donate $100,000 to charity if Banksy will do a piece to commemorate Hurricane Sandy.
The donation is a nice thought, but if that was really Nelson's intention, why does he need Banksy to do a piece in order to donate? Shit, the outcome is decidedly better, but this Nelson dude is just riding Banksy's dick like the douche's tagging over his pieces. Nelson is also jockin' Banksy's fame, only using a donation instead of a spray can. And insulting the spirit of graffiti by requiring the piece be legal. Just make the donation, get your tax write off, and get back to your day job, Nelson.
Banksy is not unfamiliar with using his art to formulate his own donations for worthy causes. Interesting to see how this will play out.
