Do you love Banksy or hate him?

Pity that so many of the critics are dismissing Banksy's work as trivial, particularly when may dubious offerings are receiving such high acclaim. For me Banksy is establishing a new genre - much like Lautrec who has been credited with being the first to get posters into the artbooks - and of course the controversy over whether it is right to splash such images over other peoples' property adds some further spice. People either love him or hate him, I am definitely in the former category, the fact that much of his work still remains is testament to atleast some appreciation and approval.
reports on the alleged unmasking of Banksy; I hope it is a false alarm, as the anonimity is of course part of the charm and "process" once valued by the critical art community
