Of course there is. There always is. I don't think it's got to the stage where the backlash outweighs the positive sentiment, but there's a sizeable proportion of people who dislike him, for various reasons.

Wow. Banksy is widely hated by many people (and for a long time, me) for the whole wanky Hoxton injokeyness and gimmickyness of much of his work, the pretence of being some sort of urban commando, etc. But I bought his book and it really won me over. There's some beautiful stuff (and genuinely daring stuff too), and his rationale had me nodding in agreement.

Sorry, I genuinely didn't know. I think he's great. We are lucky enough in Bath and Bristol to have loads of his stuff around. Not only that but he seems to have influenced a lot of graffitti artists around here to do something more than tagging.

I was showing my son a lot of his stuff in Stokes Croft in Bristol the other day

Another Banksy hater. Actually, we had a chat about it at the time...
