Banksy+Fairey = Pranksters
Regardless of your stance, graffiti and it's offspring - often categorized as Street Art - is a worldwide phenomenon. No surface is safe as the practitioners make their mark. Banksy, with the help of Shepard Fairey, truly paint the town with "Exit Through the Gift Shop." I'm always a bit late to movies, so if you've already seen it, you beat me to the punch, if you haven't, I highly recommend it. It takes a good hard look at the art form, and turns it on it's head.
