    Pundits have gone on to express little surprise that Banksy’s work continues to be vandalized at the hands of other graffiti artists – often jealous of his notoriety, many in an attempt to make a name for themselves, others simply offended and appalled that Banksy has commercialized graffiti art, where it once used to be the domain of the rebel artist.
