Da Vinci’s detail and commitment to sketching things out that clearly could never work off page, combined with the mirrored writing style of his notes (widely accepted to be a means of concealing his work from prying eyes),  leaves me wondering what was more important to him – designing functional objects or the integrity of his intellectual property.

“Different from graffiti, street art takes art worthy of galleries and puts it in the street.”

                          Sugoi Harris. Musings on Rhetoric. 15 Oct 2013, sugoihcontemprhetoric.blogspot.co.nz/2013/10/analysis-of-visual-banksy-street-art.html.

Banksy embodies all that is true and wholesome about street art – by withholding his identity, the profundity of his messages is left unobscured for all to embrace on a level playing field.
